Live Updates for Bohemians -v- Longford Town

Updates by

90' + 4'

Full time and 1-1 is a fair result, as Longford never made the man advantage pay in the second half. Bohs dug in and could have nicked a goal themselves after the break. That's all from me, good night!

90' + 4'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Bohemians and Longford Town.

90' + 3'

Gary Shaw has a good chance to steal a win for Longford but his left footed shot lacks power and is easy for Delany to claim.

89'

Well, really they were applauding Dave Mulcahy, who has left down the tunnel after falling awkwardly.

89'

Pats manager Liam Buckley makes his way towards the exit, to polite applause from the home crowd. Well that was nice.

87'

Substitution

Eoin Wearen replaces Dave Mulcahy for Bohemians.

78'

David O'Sullivan chips a free kick over the bar.

77'

Yellow Card

Roberto Lopes is booked for Bohemians.

77'

Yellow Card

Derek Prendergast is booked for Bohemians.

75'

Lorcan Fitzgerald receiving treatment on the pitch after going down under David O'Sullivan's challenge. Referee gave a corner but looked a foul to me, right on the edge of the box.

73'

Substitution

Kaleem Simon replaces Lorcan Shannon for Longford Town.

68'

A foul by Rhys Gorman on Ismahil Akinade on the edgiest part of the box has Bohs in an ideal shooting position.

68'

Yellow Card

Rhys Gorman is booked for Longford Town.

65'

Substitution

David O'Sullivan replaces Dean Kelly for Longford Town.

64'

Substitution

Jake Kelly replaces Karl Moore for Bohemians.

61'

Brilliant covering tackle from Dylan Hayes on Ayman Ben Mohamed, as the Longford midfielder prepared to pull the trigger having made a brilliant run to take Stephen Rice's pass.

57'

Gary Shaw lucky not to pick up a card as he puts a shoulder into Dylan Hayes as the defender rises for a header.

55'

Dean Kelly crashes the ball off the top of the post when he spins and shoots unchallenged at the edge of the area. Delany was nowhere near it.

54'

A hopsital pass of a back-header from Gorman towards Hunt almost allows Karl Moore steal in, but Hunt gets down quickly and bravely to smother the ball at Moore's feet.

53'

Lovely skill from Ben Mohamed to skin two Bohemians players down the right... then he stands on the ball and falls over.

52'

Official attendance is 1,296.

48'

Again it's off the line from Longford as Noel Haverty clears Akinade's header from a Bohs corner.

47'

Longford have the ball in the net and Lorcan Shannon thinks he's given his side the lead, but he's called back for an offside. It looked very tight.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Bohemians and Longford Town has started.

45' + 3'

A breathless final 10 minutes sends the teams in at the break level, though the first 35 barely suggested a goal. The turning point came with Keith Buckley's needless red card nine minutes before the break, as Bohs reacted the better and took the lead through Paddy Kavanagh's excellent shot, before Noel Haverty headed the equaliser right on half time. 

45' + 3'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Bohemians and Longford Town.

45'

Longford level as Noel Haverty finds himself unmarked from Ben Mohamed's corner and heads home.

45'

GOAL!

Noel Haverty scores for Longford Town.

44'

Lorcan Shannon's right-wing cross is overhit, but is just dipping under the crossbar, forcing Delany to turn it behind for a corner.

41'

And almost immediately Longford should be level as a superb Lorcan Shannon cross finds Gary Shaw in the box, but there's no conviction in the striker's header and he can't find the target.

41'

Yellow Card

Kevin O'Connor is booked for Longford Town.

40'

Bohs take the lead as Deady, still returning from the sideline, slips and allows Paddy Kavanagh to check inside and he unleashes an unstoppable left-footed shot from 20 yards past Hunt.

40'

GOAL!

Paddy Kavanagh scores for Bohemians.

40'

No action taken by referee Jim McKell, but it's a Bohemians free kick.

39'

Matin Deady clashes with a Bohemians player (Kavanagh I think) and goes down holding his face. The Bohs fans want Deady sent off, but he's still receiving treatment.

36'

Keith Buckley gets a second yellow for a stupid late tackle on Pat Sullivan. One of the silliest red cards you'll see, but fully deserved. A pity, as he's been Bohs' best player so far.

36'

Second Yellow & Red Card

Keith Buckley receives a second yellow card and is sent off for Bohemians.

34'

That's the closest either team have come, as Akinade heads a Lorcan Fitzgerald corner into the ground. It's bouncing into the far corner, but Pat Sullivan is on hand to head off the line and behind for another corner.

32'

Akinade gets in behind the Longford defence for the first time, but his touch is a little heavy and he has to check back, and his right-footed shot is straight at Paul Hunt in the Longford goal. He'll be a little disappointed with that, but it is the first shot on target of the game.

29'

Longford have had a lot more of the game in the last ten minutes and look slightly more threatening up front. Bohs are trying to target Martin Deady down their right by sending out Keith Buckley to double up with Kavanagh, but they're not getting much change out of him.

27'

So close from Stephen Rice! A free kick from half-way ends up with Rice, who shows neat control to tee himself up for a chipped volley that drops onto the top of the net, with Delany not exactly guaranteed to get it had it fell beneath the bar.

24'

Yellow Card

Dave Mulcahy is booked for Bohemians.

24'

The closest we've come so far. Dean Kelly curls a free kick inches wide of Delany's right-hand post.

23'

Take Gary Shaw out of this Longford side and they've got to be the shortest in the league. Their centre halves look like mascots.

19'

Buckley picks up a cheap yellow card, apparently for chatting back to the referee.

19'

Yellow Card

Keith Buckley is booked for Bohemians.

18'

Almost a chance for Keith Buckley as he pounces on Kevin O'Connor's loose pass and, just as he looks to have gotten away from Rhys Gorman, he looses his footing. Unlucky.

15'

A first effort for Longford with their first real attack of the game as Kevin O'Connor makes some space for himself and shoots from the edge of the box, but his left-footed shot is well off-target.

11'

First genuine chance of the game falls to Dave Mulcahy from a raking Dean Hayes cross. The midfielder is unmarked and gets good contact on his header, but he can't direct it close to the goal.

10'

This is confusing. Longford wearing navy away kit, which clashes with Bohs' home kit, so they're wearing their away too. Longford wore their ugly yellow away kit in the LSC game here. Some would question logic of an away kit that clashes with your own home kit.

9'

Paddy Kavanagh does well down the right to cut inside and tee up Roberto Lopes, but the captain gets under the ball and it goes well over.

6'

Stephen Rice just beat Akinade - who is a full six feet taller than him - to a header.

4'

Longford Town making plenty of noise with their away days drum. Some of the home support look a bit put out by the volume.

1'

Almost straight from the kick-off, Ismahil Akinade spins the defender and is almost through on goal, but he's called back for a handball. He doesn't protest.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Bohemians and Longford Town has kicked off.

0'

A minute's silence has been observed for former Ireland international (football and rugby) Mick O'Flanagan, who passed away during the week.

0'

The players are OFF the pitch. Which can only mean one thing: they'll be back soon. Kick-off in six minutes. Or whenever the ref feels like it.

0'

The big pre-match news is that Bohs are set to wear their green change strip, while Longford play in their home black and red kit. I'm not sure if Bohs made that decision or if Longford forgot their away kit - both are equally plausible.

0'

The teams are in and both teams have made significant changes. Bohs boss Keith Long makes three switches from the side that drew 1-1 at Shamrock Rovers two weeks ago, with Derek Prendergast and Roberto Lopes returning from suspension, and a recall for Karl Moore, as Anto Murphy, Eoin Wearen and Adam Evans all miss out. Longford coach Tony Cousins has also changed three, with Pat Sullivan, Martin Deady and Dean Kelly replacing Mark Rossiter, David O'Sullivan and the suspended Conor Powell.
