Live Updates for Shelbourne -v- Cobh Ramblers

95'

This is Patrick O' Connor signing off from Tolka Park, hope you enjoyed the live match updates.

95'

The game is all over , four cracking goals, a very competitive game and a draw very much the correct result. Shels started very brightly and got the early goal but once Cobh equalised they grew in confidence. They also recovered from Shels second goal and actually finished  the game the stronger side ,apart from a flurry of free kicks Shels did not create any chances from open play in the closing stages.

Cobh showed really high levels of fitness and were full of running at the end, they will consider this a very valuable point picked up against the league leaders.

This represents a bit of a stutter for Shels so soon after their FAI Cup exit to UCD so they will be looking to get back to winning ways when they  go to Belfield next weekend to face UCD again.
