HALF TIME

It is half-time between Waterford and Sligo Rovers.

 

Entertaining game so far betwee these two sides. Waterford a lot better than they were last weekend with Kavanagh heading them in from after just five minutes.

Sligo responded well after conceding and Romeo Parkes showed brilliant technique to smash a volley home from close range past Murphy on thirty five minutes

Game on!

Waite has been brilliant for Waterford. Parkes and Gibson on top for Sligo

45'

McGinty is sharp as the first half draws to a close. Does well in the air ahead of Evans to avert the danger once more

38'

Parkes with another brilliant chance!

He drives low to the goalkeepers right but Murphy shows all of his experience to save brilliantly at full stretch to his left

35'

GOAL!

Romeo Parkes (Sligo Rovers) scores. Sligo are level!!

Jordan Gibson the architect and does brilliantly. He beats Mascoil with ease on the right and finds Parkes unmarked at the back of the box with a fantastic cross. Parkes shows great technique to meet the cross on the volley and powers the shot past Murphy in the Waterford goal.

A fantastic team goal from Sligo with brilliant skill on display from both Gibson and Parkes

Game on!

 

30'

Cameron Evans does brilliantly and shows great strength in the challenge against Figuera in the box to deny the Sligo man from getting any shot away at goal. Figuera not so sure about the challenge but the tackle is excellent and the right call made

25'

Adam O'Reilly lucky not be booked there with a heavy challenge but the referee lets him away with a caution

22'

Very enjoyable game so far here. Open game with Waterford shading it slightly in terms of chances and possession of the ball

18'

Waterford should be two in front!! 

 

Ed McGinty pulls of a superb double save. Shane Griffin hits a speculative effort from distance with McGinty saving but fumbling into the path of Kavanagh. Kavanagh is quick again but with the goal at his mercy is denied by McGinty who pulls off a fantastic save low down to keep the game at 1-0

Brilliant from McGinty

11'

What a chance for Sligo! Johnny Kenny has no right to go so close but his header finds its way towards goal and cracks back off the post.

Sligo so close to finding an equaliser!

5'

GOAL!

Cian Kavanagh (Waterford) scores. What a start to the game for Waterford.

A wonderful delivery from Mascoil once again. Kavanagh rises highest above Morahan and powers a bullet of a header past McGInty to put Waterford in front!
