WATSON SAVES ON THE LINE!!!! INCREDIBLE, Cabinteely are minutes away from going top of the league...
Manley almost catches Ta-Uway out but Athlone clear on the line. The drama here!
Rob Manley scores for Cabinteely.
MANLEY AGAIN!!!! Dalton's ball in is knocked back into danger by Keeley and Manley is on hand to fire home! 3-2! What. A. Game
Dillon's rebound goes just wide. Nervy times for Cabo here...
Cabinteely fans are tearing their hair out here. They are playing far too defensive against an Athlone side who are vulnerable at the best of times...
Manley forces a great save from Ta-Uway but Cabo can't get anything from the rebound
Kealan Dillon scores for Athlone Town.
And just like that Athlone level! Dillon gets on the end of a long throw in as his shot hits off the post to beat McGuinness. There's a few left in this one yet I'd imagine...
And now Athlone almost equalise through Williams but McGuinness saves. Very close shave for Cabo
Keith Dalton scores for Cabinteely.
AND CABO LEAD!!!! Incredible last few minutes. Dalton fires a screamer past Ta-Uway to send Cabo 2-1 up. Athlone are all of a sudden in big trouble here...
Cabo equalise through Manley! Watson jinxes around a few Athlone bodies before crossing as Manley's looping header goes past Ta-Uway. Game on!
Still no real opening for either side in this half. Not exactly the best spectacle
Cabinteely are growing increasingly frustrated by the timewasting antics of Athlone.
There is still plenty of the play being played aerially
Cabinteely looking to get back on level terms but they can't. Aplogies for the confusion but it is 1-0 Athlone anyway. Will look to clarify during half-time.
Shane Dunne scores for Athlone Town.
Dunne, I think scores for Athlone into the top corner. Brilly's throw in falls to the ex-Wexford midfielder who gives Athlone a one-goal lead!
Still 0-0. Not much to say in the last few minutes here as the bar is filling up for HT
Cabo go close once more but Ta-Uway clears under pressure with Manley lurking. Manley heads wide once again seconds after as Athlone surive once more
Very little quality on show this evening at Stradbrook. Neither have a cutting edge up top at all
Athlone are growing into this one now. However, Cabo are dangerous
Marty Waters sees his bicycle kick saved by Ta-Uway after a flick on from Conor Keeley. Good opening from Cabo
Still 0-0 here but Cabinteely are well on top. Seems like it's a matter of time before they grab an opener
Cabinteely have won a corner kick. Keith Dalton will take it.
So unluck for Cabo. Keeley meets it at the back post forcing two blocks on the line from Kaleem Simon as the Midlanders breathe a huge sigh of relief! Great chance for Cabo
Cabinteely are pressing here...
Kaleem Simon swipes over the bar after Casey's ball in.
Cabinteely have won a free kick. Keith Dalton will take it.
Keeley very nearly makes the opportunity count but the Athlone 'keeper saves as Carlin fires the rebound wide. Good opening from Cabo
There is a small enough crowd at Stradbrook this evening. Cabinteely on the attack...Dalton fires over from a long throw into the box
And the teams are on their way out! KO is just moments away...
Teams are in at Stradbrook and Cabinteely are unchanged from last week's win over Cobh Ramblers. Athlone have made three themselves. Kick off is in under an hours time!
This has been Cabinteely’s best goal scoring start to the season since they joined the league in 2015. Previously after seven league games, Cabo scored 11 in 2017 while they have 12 goals so far this season after seven...
The last time a Cabinteely player topped the goalscoring charts in the First Division prior to Rob Manley this year was Kieran Marty Waters in 2017. The former Shamrock Rovers star scored 15 goals during that campaign for Cabinteely.
Athlone Town have only left Stradbrook once with all three points since Cabinteely joined the League of Ireland in 2015. Athlone secured a three-one in 2015 at Stradbrook with Sam O’Connor and Daniel Purdy securing all three points on that occasion for Athlone.
