Cian Kavanagh preserves Drogheda's clean sheet as Jack Watson looks set to score... This has not been Cabinteely's night so far..
James Clarke links up well with Mark Doyle before Doyle forces a good save from Cabinteely net-minder Stephen McGuinness. This game is well over as in a result context at least
As it stands, Drogheda United have gone four points clear of Bray in 5th and just the one behind Longford in 3rd, this has been some statement from the Boynesiders this evening
Drogheda are still domainting this one. Cabinteely have produced very little so far... Lyons has a free kick in a dangerous position
Marty Waters turns and shoots but McGuinness saves.. Fortunate escape for Drogheda there
Luke McNally scores for Drogheda United.
This is going from bad to worse for Cabinteely here.. Brennan's free-kick is parried away by McGuinness but McNally was on hand to slot home. This could get nasty..
Chris Lyons scores for Drogheda United.
And that should be that. Conor Kane does brilliantly to find Chris Lyons who turns on a sixpence to grab his second and Drogheda' third. Very poor defending from Cabinteely there
Not long left in this half...
This has been really poor from Cabinteely so far this evening... You would imagine they will get a reaction in the second half
Cabinteely finally show some signs of life as Marty Waters goes mighty close. Dalton linked up well with Manley who found Waters but Drogheda survived just about
Mark Doyle goes on a well constructed run before finding the free Sean Brennan who shoots straight at McGuinness as Cabo survive once more... Cabinteely are lucky to be still in this one at all
Stephen Meaney scores for Drogheda United.
Such a soft goal for Cabinteely to concede there... Chris Lyons goes on a brilliant run, then falls, then gets up again to find Stephen Meaney who is on hand to score from close range. No more than the Drogs deserve really
GREAT CHANCE! Chris Lyons bursts through but McGuinness is equal to the effort. Lyons should've scored there...
Drogheda press well through Sean Brennan and co. before Mark Hughes sess shot saved by McGuinness
Cabinteely have struggled here thus far. The bobbling pitch has been of no real help to Jack Watson and co. in the Cabo midfield at all
Sean Brennan's diagonal free-kick is met by Luke McNally who nods the ball onto Chris Lyons who fires past a helpless Stephen McGuinness. 1-0 Drogheda, deserved after their good start here in South Dublin
Carlin feeds in a ravenous Rob Manley who shoots straight at Gratzer.. Drogheda on the attack now
Drogheda United have won a free kick. Sean Brennan will take it.
Luke Gallagher shoots wide from the bouncing ball
Mark Hughes goes on a brilliant run and finds Mark Doyle with a weighted pass. Doyle, however, skews his shot waywards...
Sean Brennan stings a straight shot at McGuinness but the ex-Drogs 'keeper saves well
