Live Updates for St. Patrick's Athletic -v- UCD

90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

StPats survive any late scare to win their way through to the next round of the EA Sports Cup. Final score St Pats 2-1 UCD.

90' + 2'
UCD finding it difficult to get forward with St Pats rigid and organised. just one minute to go.

90'
Three added on by referee Sean Grant. UCD now with three at the back, and are pumping the ball long.

89'

Yellow Card

Sean O'Connor booked for St Pats, after a high foot.

87'
St Pats keeping the ball well to prevent UCD attacking. three to go.

86'
That goal will have given UCD confidence as they now have five or so minutes to push for an equaliser.

83'

GOAL!

Goal back for UCD! out of nothing young Chris Lyons found himself 12 yards from goal after a poor Kenny Browne header, and he controlled the ball and finished cooly. Game on 2-1!

81'

Yellow Card

Yellow for Pats midfielder Darren Meenan. The winger caught Ciaran Nangle after the ball was gone.

79'
Dean Clarke was waiting on the ball there and had his header lined up, but Rossiter got there first to deny the youngster.

77'
Dean Kelly again is denied, with McGinley punching the ball over for a corner.

76'
Good effort there from Nangle, but Murphy claims easily.

75'
the game has become stretched now as both sides look tired after their exploits on Friday night.

72'
Dean Kelly goes for the spectacular from 35 yards, but to no avail. That is by my count the 7th ball to leave the vicinity of Richmond today. Sharshooters indeed.

71'
Good chance for young striker Dean Clarke after he broke throught he middle of the St Pat's defence, but sliced his shot wide.

68'
Bolger now down injured in the centre of the pitch for St Pats.

68'
More lovely play by St Pats after Greg Bolger sent Dean Kelly down the right, and Kelly returned the ball to Bolger but his shot was blocked.

67'
Good chance for UCD after Graham Rusk whipped in an inviting ball, only for Mark Langtry to screw wide.

66'

Substitution

Pats Sub - James Chambers replaces Ger O'Brien, with Mark Rossiter going to right full and Jake Carroll reverting to left full.

66'
Another change for St pats, as Ger O'Brien is replaced by James Chambers, with Mark Rossiter going to right full and Carroll reverting to left full.

64'

Yellow Card

Yellow for Pats' Jake Carroll as he dives in on David O'Connor.

62'
with 62 minutes gone, now it wouldn't be wrong to say St Pats are comfortable. Knocking the ball around lovely.

60'

Substitution

UCD Double Sub - Dean Clarke replaces Robbie Benson, and David O' Connor replaces Stephen Doyle.

60'
Incidentally, UCD did bring a man on upfront to partner Graham Rusk, and they have brough on another as they go 4-3-3. Robbie Benson has been replaced by Dean Clarke, and David O' Connor has replaced Stephen Doyle.

58'
UCD look to come straight back, but Ger O''Brien hacks the ball away.

56'

GOAL!

A bit of pressure on the ball there from St PAts, as Dean Kelly won the ball, fed Greg Bolger who in turn laid it on a plate for Ian Daly. Good attacking play, after an example of defending from the front. 2-0.

55'
Rossiter has reverted to left back for St Pat's. He always was a bit of a utility man..

53'
Good play by Meenan again, but his cross was claimed easily by McGinley

51'
St Pats have instead gone for high pressure on the ball. UCD struggling for posession.

48'
Great play there by St Pat's. Meenan skipped away from three challenges before squaring to Ian Daly. Daly swivelled in the box but his shot was blocked away by Hugh Douglas.

47'
Good start for St Pats, as Ger O'Brien was released down the right by Darren Meenan, but his low cross found no one.

46'

Substitution

UCD Sub - Chris Lyons replaces Gary Burke.

46'

Substitution

Pats Double Sub - Pats make two changes at the break as Greg Bolger replaces Ian Bermingham, and Kenny Browne comes on for Conor Kenna.

46'

SECOND HALF

And we are back here in Richmond.

45' + 1'

HALF TIME

Half time here as St Pats lead 1-0. A good half has seen both sides have great chances, but with St Pats in the lead.

45' + 1'
Decent chance there for UCD, but Robbie Benson could only fire over from 18 yards.

45'
It would be worng to say St Pat's are comfortable, but the way the game is going they should come out now and continue in the same vain. For UCD, a partner for Rusk and going back to their high pressure from early in the game would be a good idea.

45'
One minute to be added on.

44'

GOAL!

GOAL! just before the break. Crossbar man O'Connor puts St Pats one up after Ian Daly's shot was blocked. Great time for Buckleys side to go ahead. Easy goal for O'Connor from ten yards.

43'
The Inchicore End cross bar got a work out there after Sean O'Connor smacked a right footed shot off the upright.

40'
What a chance!Pats centre half Pat Flynn crosses the ball after a deep corner, but his centre half team mate Conor Kenna couldn't get on the end of it!

39'
Jake Carroll wins a corner for St Pat's after his cross was blocked.

37'
First save of the game for Barry Murphy, after he palmed away a curling effort by UCD front man Graham Rusk. Great movement again by Rusk.

35'
A great chance there for St Pats, lovely ball in behind UCD to Jake Carroll, his shot was blocked and so was Ian Daly's follow up.  Another poor corner however.

32'
St Pats win a corner after a lovely flick by Darren Meenan, corner too long however for the Saints attackers.

30'
lovely spell of dominance here from St Pat's. They are keeping the ball really well and look ,most comfortable that they have all game.

25'
Another chance for Rusk there, after Barry McCabe dispossesed Rossiter, but Rusk again fired wide. He's getting enough chances.

24'
Graham Rusk is playing well as a hold up man, but as of yet hasn't been too clinical.

21'
Good break by St Pats, with jake Carroll feeding Dean Kelly who's cross was cleared by Hugh Douglas for UCD.

20'
Corner cleared by Ian Bermingham, after Rusk flicked the ball on.

18'
Real chance for UCD there as Pat Flynn was caught in possesion, but Rusk, Burke and O'Connor all failing to gewt a shot on target, before Ger O,Brien blocked the ball out for a corner. UCD now with three good chances to St Pat's one.

18'
this game is built really to be an interesting one, with pupil v. teacher in Russell and Buckley, but also both sides try to play football at all times.

16'
Game yet to find any real pattern, typical cup game with changed line ups, its impression time for a lot of players.

14'
Free kick cleared, and UCD now in possesion around the half way line

11'
Free kick for St Pat's, Ian Daly fouled.

11'
And with that, St Pat's were caught on the ball and Robbie Benson was presented with a chance, but he curled wide.

10'
St Pat's are passing the ball around nicely, pity it's in their own half though. UCD are pressing very high up.

8'
Corner for UCD, Graham Rusk spun on the 18 yard line and fired his volley off Flynn and wide.

7'
Start of the game was delayed as Barry Murphy, St Pat's keeper, had the wrong boots on. They always say keepers are crazy.

6'
Corner for St Pats seemed to be cleared off Hugh Douglas' arm, not much appeal however.

4'
First shot of the game as Dean Kelly picked up a loose ball 30 yards from goal and ran at the UCD backline, but dragged his shot wide.

3'
Even enough so far. Pat's playing the passing game per usual, with UCD leaving Rusk chasing.

3'
Just noticed that Graham Rusk is in for Cillian Morrison for UCD, late change that never made its way to us.

2'
It's Jake Carroll and Sean O'Connor in with Rossiter in the middle. UCD going for 4-5-1 as expected.

1'

GAME ON!

Both sides in their away gear, St Pat's blue and UCD white, as Sean Grant gets this game underway.

DEBATE. Is it the 3pm kick off clash with the Premier League, or is it the importance of the game that leads to poor attendances? Tweet to @damienbyrne92!

0'
Teams heading back in now to get kitted out, nearly there..

0'
Interersting point, only one central midfielder in the St Pat's team, Mark Rossiter. I'd say Jake Carroll will play in beside him.
