One minute remaining
Longford Town have won a free kick. Anto Breslin will take it.
And the attack breaks down.... Still 1-1, very tense it must be said
Very poor ball though
Conor Keeley and Jack Tuite looking vey impressive here
Lots of action, no real quality although
Cabinteely have won a corner kick. Keith Dalton will take it.
Longford clear, just about...
Longford are starting to turn the screw here....
And Cabinteely press even more but Longford clear, just about.
Rob Manley scores for Cabinteely.
And Cabo level! Marty Waters cuts inside and makes a mockery of Zambra. Waters ball in is met by a Cabo body before Manley slams home. 1-1!
WHAT A SAVE!!!!! Steacey saves! Dalton's ball in is met by Manley who directs his ball towards goal but Steacey saves once more..... Incredible!
Longford Town have won a corner kick. Dean Zambra will take it.
AND ZAMBRA NEARLY SCORES!!!! Zambra hits the post from a corner, never seen that before
Cabinteely starting on the attack here...
And we're almost back underway....
It is half-time between Cabinteely and Longford Town.
Cabinteely have much to do to save this game. Fenn will be more than happy with what he has seen so far
Longford being very professional here. Using the ball quite well
Cabinteely have been very poor so far here. Not much threat at all from Cabo so far
Plenty of hang time on the ball so far with Doyle and Byrne linking up well aerially
Cabinteely have won a free kick. Kieran 'Marty' Waters will take it.
Dalton actually takes and his hanging ball in from wide nearly catches Steacey out but goes over the bar
Longford Town have won a free kick. Dean Zambra will take it.
Tuite clears well
Decent crowd populating the far right hand side of Stradbrook. So far, all Longford
The bobble on this pitch is getting worse. Not ideal for football by any means
That could've been two! Keeley makes a mess of the clearance and Zak O'Neill saves the day for Cabo... Looking like a second for Longford is inevitable at the minute
Longford still on the attack here.... This is relentless
Rob Manley shoots but but Steacey saves well. No real threat there
Cabinteely have been quite poor in possesion thus far. Easy pickings so far for De Town
Sam Verdon scores for Longford Town.
Good start from Longford Town and they are duley rewarded. Breslin's corner was met by Joe Manley and Sam Verdon gobbled up the rebound to send Neale Fenn's side into an early lead!
Been a subdued opening here with both midfields trying to impose their game on proceedings
Lots of direct football thus far with the surface being problematic
Longford Town have won a corner kick. Anto Breslin will take it.
Breslin's ball in is cleared
The ball is bouncing around very much so early on with Longford looking to keep the ball on the deck
And the teams are out....
Atmosphere is building here at Stradbrook as I'm in arguably the most strange press box I've been in. Comfortable, yet strange. Predictions anyone? You can get me at @AndrewDempsey98 on twitter with your predictions!
Longford make one change from last week's league win over Drogheda United while Cabinteely are unchanged from last weeks win at Tolka Park... Kick off in 20 minutes!
As Longford Town manager, Neale Fenn has an impressive record against Cabinteely with four wins out of five against Pat Devlin’s charges, the last of which coming in a 4-1 win over the South Dubliners in September.
Excluding friendlies, this will be only the eighth time the two sides have met in a competitive setting with Longford just about holding the upper hand with four wins compared to Cabinteely’s two.
The last time Cabinteely won back to back league games was all the way back in July where Devlin’s youthful side brushed past the challenge of Athlone Town and Cobh Ramblers.
Evening folks and welcome to Extratime.ie's coverage of Cabinteely versus Longford Town. I'm Andrew Dempsey and I'll be taking you all through tonights action here at Stradbrook!
