84'

Substitution

SPORTING FINGAL: Goalscorer Lorcan Fitzgerald goes off with a slight knock, and is replaced by Ollie Cahill.

83'
As we move ever closer towards full-time, the game has become very flat again, with the outcome of the game very much sealed at this stage.

72'

GOAL!

SPORTING FINGAL - LORCAN FITZGERALD: It looks like game over now, as Fitzgerald finds the net somewhat fortuitously when his cross from the left goes in off the post and into the far corner of the net.

68'

Yellow Card

SPORTING FINGAL - KENNY BROWNE: Browne goes in the book after fouling Sheppard right on the edge of the box.

66'
Galway are now beginning to put some real pressure on Sporting now, and Fingal need to be careful that they let this lead slip as they head towards the final twenty minutes of this game.

56'
Galway very nearly get back into the game, when substitute Tom King whips in a cross that is met by the head of Walsh, but Kenny Browne is on hand to clear off the line.

54'

Substitution

GALWAY UNITED: First change of the night as Tom King comes on to replace Jason Molloy.

53'

Yellow Card

GALWAY UNITED - RHYS MEYNELL: Meynell goes in the book after an off-the-ball incident.

Gary O'Neill finds space down the right, but Daire Geraghty makes a good save to stop his side falling further behind.

48'
Alan Kirby is almost through after a knock-on by Glen Crowe, but Geraghty is quick off his line to cut out the danger.

46'

SECOND HALF

We are back underway now in the Morton Stadium.

45'
Glen Crowe has his two shots of the night in quick succession. First he forces Daire Geraghty to save from a tight angle, and then he heads against the crossbar following the subsequent corner, delivered by Conan Byrne.

45'

HALF TIME

Sporting Fingal have a two goal lead as the teams head for the dressing rooms.

40'
As we enter into the final five minutes of the opening period, it is looking likely that Sporting will take a two-goal lead into the second half, as neither side has created too many chances in the last few minutes.

36'
Even though Galway are getting on the ball a lot more, Sporting still look quite comfortable all the time, and Liam Buckley will be more than happy if his side go in 2-0 ahead at the break.

30'
Nice first-time strike from O'Neill, but it is an easy one for Geraghty in the end.

28'
A half-chance for Galway as a cross by Stephen Walsh on the left nearly falls for Karl Sheppard, but it is eventually cleared after some nervy Fingal defending.

26'

Yellow Card

GALWAY UNITED - JAMIE MCKENZIE: McKenzie goes in the book after an off-the-ball foul on Gary O'Neill.

25'
Sporting Fingal look more than happy with their two-goal cushion, though Galway are playing a good deal better at the moment.

20'
Galway are now starting to string a few passes together, but haven't created any openings as of yet.

16'
The atmosphere has gone flat here as Galway are finding it hard to get any sort of rhythm going in the final-third.

11'

GOAL!

SPORTING FINGAL - COLIN HAWKINS: Sporting are looking good for the three points already, as defender Hawkins powerfully heads home after a corner on the right from Conan Byrne.

9'
Ger O'Brien tests Darragh Geraghty with a long-range drive, but the Galway 'keeper is more than equal to it.

8'
Galway are reacting positively enough after an unideal start, but they have a long road ahead of them.

3'

GOAL!

SPORTING FINGAL - ALAN KIRBY: A perfect start for Fingal as an excellent ball over the top by Ger O'Brien is controlled superbly by Ronan Finn who pulls back for Kirby, who slots home nicely from ten yards.

0'
We're just a couple of minutes away from kick-off here at Morton Stadium where Sporting Fingal will be hoping to keep alive their hopes of a third-placed finish. Sean Connor's Galway will be looking to recover from a run of form that has seen them collect only two points from a possible 18.
