The game has ended between Cabinteely and Athlone Town.

Frustration for Cabinteely as Athlone hold out for a more than deserved draw against their promotion hunting opposition. Andrew Dempsey over and out!

90' + 3'

CABO NEARLY NICK IT!! 

Paul Fox does well to meet Stephen KInsella's cross but Myles saves well under pressure, Cabo are running out of time now...

90' + 3'

It looks as if there is only going ti be one team going to nick this , and it's not Cabinteely.. Athlone have been the better side late on...

90'

Yellow Card

Conor Keeley (Cabinteely) is booked.

87'

WAS THAT THE CHANCE FOR ATHLONE? 

Lee Duffy gets in behind the Cabinteely defence before he fires a low cross across the face of goal. His cross is met by John Morgan but he is denied by his own player Taner Dogan who stops the ball going into the back of the net. Cabo may have survived a big one here...

86'

Free Kick

David Brookes(Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

83'

Substitution

Evan O'Connor (in) - Ciaran Grogan (out) (Athlone Town).

81'

80'

Substitution

Keith Dalton (in) - Christian Lotefa (out) (Cabinteely).

78'

After an entertaining first-half the second-half has descended into a scrappy enough affair, Keith Dalton now gets ready to come on for the hosts...

75'

CLOSE FOR ATHLONE! 

Ronan Manning nearly catches Corey Chambers completely unaware with a dinked cross turned shot. Chambers had to do well to claw that one away from goal...

74'

Athlone have not won a league game since July 2019 when they saw off Wexford by three goals to one at Lissywoolen, will that change tonight? 

73'

Free Kick

Taner Dogan(Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

72'

Yellow Card

Jonny Carlin (Cabinteely) is booked.

70'

There onec again hasn't been an awful lot to talk about the game over the past few minutes. AThlone have dropped a little bit deeper while Cabo have pushed forward a bit more than they had been. An intriguing final twenty awaits at Stradbrook..

65'

Substitution

Dean Casey (in) - Shane Barnes (out) (Cabinteely).

64'

Corner Kick

Steven Kinsella(Cabinteely) takes a corner-kick.

63'

Corner Kick

Steven Kinsella(Cabinteely) takes a corner-kick.

CLOSE FOR CABO! Cabinteely nearly take the lead but David Brookes was on hand at the near post to clear the ball off the line for Athlone Town. 

57'

Stephen Kinsella goes close from long-range but he can't direct his shot on goal to trouble Aaron Myles in the Athlone goal...

57'

A triple substitution for Cabinteely as Pat Devlin looks to stem the flow of the game in his side's favour. Will it work? We shall find out sooner rather than later...

55'

Substitution

Robert Dunne (in) - Kieran Marty Waters (out) (Cabinteely).

55'

Substitution

Dylan Thornton (in) - Alex Aspil (out) (Cabinteely).

55'

Substitution

Mitchell Byrne (in) - Lloyd Buckley (out) (Cabinteely).

53'

And now it's time for Cabinteely to go close with an opportunity of their own as Conor Keeley's header is saved by Aaron Myles. In the space of just two minutes both teams may have scored....

52'

Athlone Town go close again but Llod Buckley does brillaintly to deny Adam Lennon. That may have been a second for the visitors...

50'

Substitution

John Morgan (in) - Jack Reynolds (out) (Athlone Town).

Free Kick

Lee Duffy(Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

SECOND HALF

The second half between Cabinteely and Athlone Town has started.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Cabinteely and Athlone Town.

Half-time here at Stradbrook as both Cabo and Athlone go in level at the break. Athlone were awarded a controversial penalty that Manning converted but seconds later Lotefa levelled for the hosts. It remains 1-1..

45' + 1'

Manning with a great run again and he finds Jack Reynolds but Chambers gets down well to deny the Athlone forward. It looked for all the world that Reynolds was going to score there...

45'

There will be one minute of additional time...

45'

Corner Kick

Ronan Manning(Athlone Town) takes a corner-kick.

43'

Ronan Manning goes on a great run but his pass to Lee Duffy has too much on it and he is also offisde. Manning has been superb this evening,,,

40'

Free Kick

Ronan Manning(Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

37'

A rather bizarre passage of play there between Stephen KInsella and Ciaran Grogan but Grogan eventaully, after about 20 seconds wins a throw-in... 

34'

Nearly a disaster for Cabinteely as Corey Chambers nearly tips the ball into his own net rather than over the bar. Christian Lotefa is on hand however to clear the impending goal away from danger. It remains 1-1 here, somehow...

32'

Corner Kick

Steven Kinsella(Cabinteely) takes a corner-kick.

29'

ASSIST!

Conor Keeley(Cabinteely) provides the assist.

29'

GOAL!

Christian Lotefa (Cabinteely) scores.

CABO LEVEL! Paul Fox's free-kick finds the head of Conor Keeley who forces a top class save from Myles but there is Lotefa who turns the ball home as Cabinteely level the game. Cabo needed that big time! 

27'

Yellow Card

Corey Chambers (Cabinteely) is booked.

27'

PENALTY SCORED!

Ronan Manning (Athlone Town) scores from the penalty spot.

ATHLONE TAKE THE LEAD! I suspect we weill hear about this one after the game. Corey Chambers looked to have nabbed the ball away from Lee Duffy's feet but referee Oliver Moran decides it's a penalty. Manning however slots home and Athlone lead! 

25'

The game between Cabinteely and Athlone Town has gone quite scrappy. Neither side have looked especially threatening in the last few minutes....

24'

Free Kick

Ronan Manning(Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

23'

Yellow Card

Christian Lotefa (Cabinteely) is booked.

19'

Ronan Manning sees his weak effort fropm range barely trouble Corey Chambers in the Cabinteely goal. He needed a bit more venom in that strike to trouble Chambers...

17'

CLOSE FOR CABO! 

Cabo now go close with an effort of their own as Stephen Kinsella - who is making his first Cabo start - curls his shot just wide of Aaron Myles' goal. I don't think Myles was saving that...

16'

CLOSE FOR ATHLONE! 

Lee Duffy turns Lloyd Buckley on a sixpence and forces a great save from Corey Chambers in the Cabinteely goal. Christian Lotefa cleared the ball away for an Athlone Town corner...

12'

Conor Keeley displays his inner Franz Beckenbauer as he goes on a searching run through the AThlone Town defence only for his dinked ball through to be collected by Athlone keeper Aaron Myles...

9'

Corner Kick

Steven Kinsella(Cabinteely) takes a corner-kick.

9'

An even enough start to the game this evening between Cabinteely and Athlone Town - barring Jonny Carlin's free header there hasn't been an awful lot to talk about so far...

6'

Free Kick

Paul Fox(Cabinteely) takes a free-kick.

4'

Athlone have their first effort on goal of the game but Ronan Manning can only skew his effort over the bar. Some good play from Adam Lennon made the chance there for the visitors

2'

Corner Kick

Steven Kinsella(Cabinteely) takes a corner-kick.

Close for Cabinteely as Jonathan Carlin heads over Kinsella's corner-kick. Carlin ought to have made more of that opportunity....

“Every game in football is different,” Pat Devlin told his club’s media team ahead of this evening's game. 

“Results have not been going our way. We have never, ever had it easy against Athlone. It’s going to be very interesting from both clubs’ points of view.”

He added “It would be nice to change the result and get a win. That is what we must do. That is what we have to put the emphasis on.”
