90' + 6'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between St. Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United.

Delight for the home side as that late goal gives them their first victory of the season. 

90' + 3'

Substitution

Hugh Douglas (in) - Jake Hyland (out) (Drogheda United).

90'

Four minutes to be added here. Possibly more 

90'

GOAL!

Billy King (St. Patrick's Athletic) scores.

Can this be a winner? Coughlan's shot is saved but possession is recycled well. It finds its way to the back post where King bundles home 

88'

King swivels and turns but his effort is over the bar

85'

Ronan Murray has a great chance and it would have been Pat's to blame if he had scored. Jaros clears the ball to Billy King who loses it immediately. Murray collects a pass and his shot is saved at his near post by Jaros

82'

Yellow Card

Lee Desmond (St. Patrick's Athletic) is booked.

80'

Substitution

Billy King (in) - Robbie Benson (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

79'

Coughlan lines one up by Gary Deegan's face is in the way. 

76'

John Mountney is skinned by Mark Doyle but Lennon is available to clear it. Jaros punches the subsequent corner away

74'

Drogheda come again down the right hand side. James Brown will not feel good after overhitting his cross though

70'

Substitution

Darragh Burns (in) - Jason McClelland (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

69'

Did anyone see that coming? Jaros in the Pats goal has a bit of a stinker and Corcoran is there to profit. He is just on the pitch as well. 

69'

GOAL!

Dinny Corcoran (Drogheda United) scores.

67'

Substitution

Dinny Corcoran (in) - Chris Lyons (out) (Drogheda United).

67'

Substitution

Brandon Bermingham (in) - Darragh Markey (out) (Drogheda United).

64'

The Drogs have to come out of their shell now. How will the concession of that goal change their game plan?

62'

Forrester has an effort from outside the box but Odumosu is equal to it. 

59'

GOAL!

Rónán Coughlan (St. Patrick's Athletic) scores.

Derserved lead for Pats. The away side faced a sustained length of possession but were unable to deal with it properly. It bounces around the penalty area and the former Sligo striker pounces

56'

A miss-hit opportunity falls for Smith. His first time effort is saved 

54'

Matty Smith has a shot which is deflected out for a corner. 

51'

Jason McClelland is found after a decent spell of play. He overplays it though, rather than setting up a chance. 

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between St. Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United has started.

45' + 3'

The sides both head into the break on level terms. Drogheda will be the happier of the two, however. A point here to build upon the win last weekend would be an extremely positive start to their return to the Premier Division. 

45' + 3'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between St. Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United.

45' + 1'

Substitution

Ian Bermingham (in) - Shane Griffin (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

45' + 1'

Griffin goes down holding his shoulder and is unable to continue. The veteran Bermingham comes on in his place. 

44'

A loose pass by Forrester is almost costly as Lyons is played through the centre. He is pulled up for offside though

41'

A rare foray into the Pats half sees them win a corner. The threat comes to nothing as it is overhit and goes out

34'

Good link-up play between Chris Forrester and Ronan Coughlan briefly gives the home side a glimpse at goal before it is cleared

30'

The final ball for Pats will have to be a lot more precise in order to get past the Drogs back-line than what it has been at the moment. Too many passes more in hope than expectation

25'

Both sides will be aware of the building up of niggly fouls and bookings so far. Neither will want to lose a player early 

22'

Yellow Card

Jamie Lennon (St. Patrick's Athletic) is booked.

20'

Yellow Card

Chris Lyons (Drogheda United) is booked.

20'

Pats seem better in possession but finding it difficult to break down the away side. They are managing to keep their shape and frustrate the saints

18'

Doyle signals for a cross and is found un-marked. He gets way under the cross and it sails over the bar

17'

Very little time for either side on the ball at the moment. 

10'

Mark Doyle cuts inside but his effort is straight at the keeper

7'

Neither goalkeepers have been really tested so far.

4'

Inswinging free-kick headed out by the Drogheda defence. Corner hacked clear

2'

Pats on the offensive at this early stage. Mainly down the left flank

1'

GAME ON!

The game between St. Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United has kicked off.

Both teams get us underway here.
