Live Updates for Longford Town -v- UCD

Updates by

94'

FULL TIME!

All over here and it's tough on the Town. The linesman that failed to raise his flag goes running down the tunnel.

92'

GOAL!

More drama. Town supporters are furious as they believed it was offside. I thought so too. Graham Rusk with the goal.

90'

GOAL!

Late drama in Flancare as the Town equalise. Morley with the cross which Cowan heads home.

89'
Chris Deans' header has been cleared off the line by UCD's Paul O'Connor.

86'
Time is ticking down here. Will the Town get an equaliser or can UCD hold on??

77'
Paddy Collins' glancing header just bounces wide of McGinley's far post. It's all Town at this stage.

74'
It's all to play for here.

73'

Substitution

Dave Marshall on for UCD in place of Ledwith.

72'

PENALTY SCORED!

Town have pulled a goal back. Robbie Creevy bundled down Cowan in the box. Mark Salmon scores from the spot.

69'

Substitution

UCD make their first change - James Kavanagh on for Benson

67'

Substitution

Town make their third change - Lee Roche on for Skelly

63'

Substitution

Roche is after being taken off and Cathal Brady is on.

61'
Another good opportunity that Roche is after wasting for the Town. Don Cowan broke down the wing, he crossed into the box and Roche decided to backheel the ball (badly I may add) and UCD were able to clear.

58'
Town's crossing and the delivery of ball into the box has been absolutely terrible this eve. Craig Walsh and Cathal Brady are missed.

53'
Aidan Roche is after fluffing a shot in the box when a goal looked on for the home side.

52'
Last season the Town were like Jekyll and Hyde on too many occasions. It seems to be starting now. They played well in Limerick on Fri night but tonight have been extremely poor. There is no excuse for this performance.

46'

Second half underway now. It will be interesting to see how this half goes. The home side really need to improve, supporters weren't happy with their first half performance.

45'

HALF TIME

Thank god we've a break now. That was complete drivel.

44'
The visitors are completely on top here.

30'

Substitution

Town keeper Alvin Rouse injures himself and is replaced by youngster Paul Hunt. It's the former St. Pat's netminder's league debut for the Town.

28'
UCD waste a glorious opportunity to extend their lead. Benson puts in Langtry but with Rouse out of goals he blasts his effort over the bar.

26'
This is extremely poor from the home side.

23'

PENALTY SCORED!

Just as I speak Alvin Rouse pushes Robbie Benson over in the box. Referee Neil Doyle points straight to the spot. Robbie Creevy duly dispatches the penalty.

22'
Absolutely nothing to report here. That's how exciting this game is. It's early days but I'm hoping we have a winner here at the end of normal time. I couldn't do 30 extra minutes more of this..

11'
Don Cowan should've equalised for the Town. Aidan Roche played the ball in to the striker but his weak effort was saved by McGinley.

10'
UCD look buoyed up now. Before this game they couldn't buy a goal, great start for them here.

8'
Bad goal to give away from Town's point of view. Langtry with the cross and Graham Rusk finished it from close range.

7'

GOAL!

 

4'
Town have started the better here.

3'
Contrary to some reports new Town signing Keith Gillespie will not be making his debut tonight. The former Manchester Utd player isn't even here in Flancare to watch his new team-mates play.

1'
And we're underway here in Flancare.

0'
