Live Updates for Waterford -v- Dundalk

Updates by Gareth O'Reilly

90' + 5'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Waterford and Dundalk. The game has ended and Dudnalk now must regroup for that trip to London during the week. Waterford will be very happy to continue their hunt for a European place this season.

90' + 4'

Dundalk still pressing and they've won a dangerous corner. No they've lost the ball again!

90' + 3'

Matthew Smith is done in the centre of the park as the Waterford physio goes on to the pitch to have a look at the problem. He seems to be back to his feet so all seems to be good again.

90' + 2'

Substitution

Dean Walsh (in) - Daryl Murphy (out) (Waterford).

90'

4 minutes added on.

90'

If Waterford can hang on here they will move within a point of Dundalk who will remain just about in the top 3 of the very congested Premier DIvision table.

88'

Substitution

William Longbottom (in) - Will Fitzgerald (out) (Waterford).

85'

HOBAN! SO close for the striker as the Dundalk man flashes a shot beyond Muphy's far post with the keeper likely beaten if he could have kept it on target. So close with time running out.

84'

Poor from Dundalk there in the final third as the ball goes over the top and out for yet another goal kick.

83'

Yellow Card

Tyreke Wilson (Waterford) is booked. Wilson booked for timewasting at a throw in.

81'

Yellow Card

Jake Davidson (Waterford) is booked.

79'

Duffy with a good free kick into the box from wide on the left but Waterford head clear.

78'

Waterford's corner is ONCE AGAIN claimed by McCarey. He has been confident rising above everyone to claim those high balls although the quality of the corner kick routines has not been award winning.

78'

Substitution

Greg Sloggett (in) - Chris Shields (out) (Dundalk).

77'

Yellow Card

Chris Shields (Dundalk) is booked.

76'

Murphy with a great chance after he gets in behind the Dundalk backline after a long kick out from Murphy. One on one with McCArey though he fails to beat the onrushing keeper who steers it behind for a corner. The resulting corner is claimed by McCarey who has done well today.

74'

Substitution

Olawutunmise Sobowale (in) - John Martin (out) (Waterford).

74'

Waterford are making a sub but the fourth official's board is not working so a bit of old fashioned shouting is happening. Oh it's back working again.

71'

Some great skill by McEleney before he is taken out while playing a ball to Gannon. The ref waves advantage but Gannon's attempted run and chase fails to work out and Waterford regain control. I'd imagine a yellow card will be on the way for the tackle though at the next stoppage in play.

70'

Yellow Card

Niall O'Keeffe (Waterford) is booked.

69'

McEleney running around the edge of the box fires in an effort that goes high and wide. They will need to do better to salvage this game.

68'

McEleney with a long ball through the Waterford defense searching for the run of McMillan but like many of Dundalk's forward passes this afternoon. The pass is overhit by some distance.

66'

Dundalk really running on the changes here now that they've gone behind as they look to up the gears with a bit more urgency.

65'

Substitution

Darragh Leahy (in) - Cameron Dummigan (out) (Dundalk).

65'

Substitution

Sean Gannon (in) - Stefan Colovic (out) (Dundalk).

61'

Substitution

Patrick Hoban (in) - Sean Murray (out) (Dundalk).

61'

Substitution

Patrick McEleney (in) - Jordan Flores (out) (Dundalk).

57'

GOAL!

John Martin (Waterford) scores. Martin heads into the back of the Dundalk net after rising above the rest of the bodies in the box to find the net and give Waterford an unlikely lead despite McCarey being at full stretch. Well placed effort.

55'

Chances appear to be few and far between so far in this second half as both teams try to re-warm themselves up on a cold afternoon in Wateford.

50'

McMIllian hits one from 25 yards out that also goes 25 yards up over the Waterford crossbar but it's officially a shot none the less. I reckon Waterford won't be getting that ball back anytime soon.

48'

Opening chance of the second half see's Colovic connect with a header but it's held well by Murphy just as it looked like it may dip under the crossbar.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Waterford and Dundalk has started.

45' + 1'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Waterford and Dundalk.

45'

I do like the way it is still announced over the PA despite the empty stands.

45'

1 minute has been added on

44'

Murphy with a food turn and strike on the edge of the box but McCarey grabs it with ease and tries to ignite a Dundalk break away.

40'

MURPHY! Oh so close from the striker after Dundalk gave the ball away at the back causing McCarey to rush off his line but Murphy could only steer the ball beyond the far post. So close to Waterford taking what would have to be considered a surprise lead.

38'

Sean Murray called for offside after a good ball over the top. That seems to be a trend so far today as Dundalk continue to bite at the bit in the hop of securing that first goal.

35'

Waterford are doing a remarkable job of getting bodies in front of every single Dundalk shot in the last little while which is frustrating Dundalk's strikers. Duffy particularly beginning to get quite annoyed. Dundalk certainly having the better chances but neither keeper feeling under too much pressure just yet.

32'

A shot from Niall O'Keefe is blocked down and allows Dundalk to go on the break with Michael Duffy leading the charge but the Blues manage to avert the danger by throwing all of the bodies at the ball.

28'

Daryl Murphy in action for Waterford up front. The former Ireland international hasn't seen much of the action so far this afternoon with the Dundalk defense closely monitoring his every run.

25'

First Waterford corner kick is whipped in by Ali Coote. It's overhit with Smith lobbing it back in to a crowded box but McCarey rises to claim gratefully.

22'

Davidson for Waterford, goes on a run from his own half before he is bundled over on the halfway line to win a free kick.

21'

Michael Duffy loses the ball after kicking the ball at referee Sean Grant. To be fair he does blow the whistle and give the ball back to the Lilywhites.

19'

Waterford's latest attacking run down the right hand side is cut out by Dummigan who came across at speed to whip the ball back up towards McMillian.

16'

Niall O'Keefe and Jordan Flores with a clash of heads as both men recieve some attention. O'Keefe seems to be the worse off and is still down.

14'

Duffy with a decent effort that is saved well by Brian Murphy in the home sides goal. Good strike from the Derry man inside the box. The resulting corner bounces dangerously before finally going behind for a goal kick. First real cahnce of the game for either side.

12'

Dundalk starting to grow into this game but their play in the final third has been poor with some passes and crosses easily dealt with by the Waterford rearguard.

10'

Still scoreless but according to our twitter poll, you believe that Dundalk will win this one fairly easily.

 

9'

It is very sunny in the RSC this afternoon but I guess that's why they call it the sunny South East. Sadly neither goalkeeper is sporting the baseball cap.

8'

Everyone's favourtie Italien Filipo is back on the sideline for Dundalk after having to coach from the stands for the European game on Thursday due to not having a Pro license.

5'

Aaron McCarey in goal for Dundalk as he takes his first goalkick of the afternoon. Rogers being rested ahead of Thursday as he was ahead of the Molde game this past week.

4'

Flores attempts to dink the ball over the top to try and create something for David McMillan but to no avail as the Waterford defense sniff it out with ease.

2'

Dundalk's next game is away to Arsenal. That's a sentence you don't type all that often!

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Waterford and Dundalk has kicked off.

Sitting down pitchside is Michael P Ryan where he is ready to capture all the action with his flashy camera.
