Live Updates for Sligo Rovers -v- Cork City

Updates by Diarmuid Daly

90' + 4'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Sligo Rovers and Cork City. And there you go. It's all over as Sligo secure an important win to move up to fourth ahead of Waterford and only just behind Dundalk. Cork City meanwhile are in deep trouble without a win on the road all year and a point adrift with only a game to play.

90' + 4'

Sligo with a corner in what will surely be the last play of the game.

Stay up, stay up is the shout from the sideline from the Cork dugout.

4 minutes added on

88'

Oh Ed McGinty with a fantastic save to keep his side in front after a low Cork shot on the break is almost steered beyond him and thankfully for the home side, his defenders are alert enough to scoop to put sufficient pressure on Ochieng as he smashes the ball over the bar on the rebound.

Edward McGinty (Sligo Rovers) is booked. McGinty is booked for dissent.

54'

There are spells in games were the possession is just switched back and forth without any real moments of note. It's the worst kind of time for a live updater. It is now currently happening.

A foul by Kevin O'Connor on Coughlan gives Sligo a free-kick in a good area on the right. However Donnellan's delivery is floated too close to Bossin.

15'

Yellow Card

Alec Byrne (Cork City) is booked.

The City midfielder is correctly booked after a loose touch gave him little option but to haul down the marauding Niall Morahan.

14'

Excellent work from City as Byrne sprays a ball wide for Ochieng. He's too quick for Donnellan, and his cross is into a good area. However neither Elliott nor Whitmarsh had advanced far enough.

11'

ASSIST!

Edward McGinty (Sligo Rovers) provides the assist.

11'

GOAL!

Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe (Sligo Rovers) scores.

A long free-kick from McGinty runs all the way over the top of the away defence without a touch. Junior sprints past Ochieng and rolls the ball past Liam Bossin for the opener.

9'

Oh dear. City are awarded a penalty after Alec Byrne's shot from distance is blocked the hand of John Mahon. However Elliott's spot-kick, although well-struck, is too close to the excellent McGinty. It's pushed behind for a corner, from which nothing comes.

8'

MISSED PENO!

Kit Elliott (Cork City) misses from the penalty spot.

GAME ON!

The game between Sligo Rovers and Cork City has kicked off.

0'

Plenty of player traffic between these two sides in recent years, of course. City alumni Buckley and Rónán Coughlan start for Sligo this evening while Danny Kane is on the bench.

0'

Three changes for each side from last week's encounters. Rovers introduce Regan Donnelan, Will Seymour and Garry Buckley for David Cawley, Sigitas Olborkis and Teemu Penninkangas. City interim boss Colin Healy has brought in Kit Elliott, Beineoin O'Brien-Whitmarsh and Ronan Hurley for Dylan McGlade, Deshane Dalling and Corey Galvin.

0'

The hosts will be hoping for a three points to boost their hopes of sneaking a European place after last week's disappointing defeat to Shelbourne, while City will be desperate to glean something from this evening's encounter. A defeat here coupled with a Finn Harps victory against Bohemians tonight would send them through the relegation trapdoor.
