90'

89'

Substitution

Ronan Boyce (in) - Adam Hammill (out) (Derry City).

88'

Kabia hits the deck after making his way into the box but the referee waves away the protests.

87'

Hammill who hit the bar at the start of the game now smashes the ball off post from just outside the box in a goal that would have put the icing on the cake.

85'

Dobbs with a good strike that forces Cherrie to react and save well. It was straight at the Derry keeper but it is a shot on target none the less.

82'

Derry literally playing keep ball at the moment going forward, backwards, left, right. Shels running around not looking like they've much belief left in this one.

79'

Looking ahead: Derry travel to Shamrock Rovers on Wednesday night in a game which could see Rovers secure the League title.

78'

Friel appears to pull up with cramp but it looks like he will be able to continue on for the time being.

76'

Kilduff continuing to chase down many lost causes and when he does manage to steal in and grab the ball he is not being supported fantastically well by his fellow teammates.

75'

Substitution

Aaron Dobbs (in) - Mark Byrne (out) (Shelbourne).

72'

Yellow Card

Peter Cherrie (Derry City) is booked.

70'

Substitution

Ciaron Harkin (in) - Joe Thomson (out) (Derry City).

64'

Substitution

Sean Quinn (in) - Dayle Rooney (out) (Shelbourne).

64'

Substitution

Shane Farrell (in) - Ryan Brennan (out) (Shelbourne).

63'

Derry stating to up it a little but as Clifford's shot goes up and away to Brady's left.

61'

GOAL!

Walter Figueira (Derry City) scores. Surely it's all over for Shels now as Figueira bundles in one of the more sloppier goals you would have to say as bodies dive all around him to try and clear the cross.

59'

YAY. Finally a chance to write about. Jack Malone with a great run down the right hand side but his cross fails to get a good enough connection from Stephen Mallon rushing in at the back post.

57'

Declan Devine not happy on the sideline before the ref decides to change his mind and give a throw in for the home side after he appeared to give Shels a free kick. All a bit strange although not surprised the ref has fallen asleep after having to watch this.

56'

The ball is hit out of play by Derry after Shels hit yet another ball forward in a kick and chase attempt.

55'

Derry are unbeaten against Shels in 8 games with 6 wins and 2 draws taking place between the side of late.

52'

The ref has awarded a free kick against Ryan Brennan seconds after a player fell over the ball which just about sums up this horrific attempt at a game of football.

47'

Hopefully the second half can bring a bit more for both sides as they make one change each

46'

Substitution

Stephen Mallon (in) - Ciaran Coll (out) (Derry City).

46'

Substitution

Jaze Kabia (in) - Denzil Fernandes (out) (Shelbourne).

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Derry City and Shelbourne has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Derry City and Shelbourne.

45'

Derry will have hoped to have a little bit more to show for their increased possession as McCormack is the latest player to give the ball away needlessly on the edge of the Shels box.

41'

Oscar Brennan almost loses the ball after a poor first touch as Malone chases down but he manages to regain control at a vital moment.

37'

A long hopeful punt towards Kilduff is easily claimed by Peter Cherrie. The Shels play makers will have to do better than that if they are to get back into this one.

35'

Right I've had to go and pull ou the stat book. 36 yellow cards for Derry and no red cards makes them the best behaved team. While Shels have 3 red cards and 33 yellow cards making them the worst behaved side.

33'

In case you're wondering about the lack of updates.....it is due to almost nothing happening. In fact it's just taken 33 seconds for a goal kick to be taken. Hopefully this one livens up or I'll have to go to plan B and start telling jokes or something.

27'

Mark Byrne get a talking to by Derek Tomney after he is lucky to escape a booking for a challenge on Figueira after the Derry player had knocked the ball out into open space.

24'

A flurry of Shelbourne corner eventually see's Toal smash the ball clear into the stands.

21'

An inswinging corner from Dayle Rooney goes over the head of Daniel O'Reilly who was coming in at the back post for Shelbourne. Probably one of the Dubliners best chances so far as they seek to get back into this game.

19'

GOAL!

Joe Thomson (Derry City) scores. Thompson gives Derry the lead as he comes across the box to flick beyond Jack Brady to score his first goal since his arrival from Scotland.

16'

It seems like Derry are looking to play the ball along the ground while Shels on the other hand are content to put all their players behind the ball and invite the home side on to them.

15'

Rooney is fouled by Malone as Shels can now line up a free out

12'

Jack Malone's effort is blocked away by O'Reilly as Derry continue to look for a gap through the Shels defense

1'

14 seconds gone and HAMILLLLLLLLLLL smashes one straight against the bar. That nearly caught everyone off guard including the entire Shels team.

1'
