Live Updates for Shamrock Rovers -v- Bohemians

Updates by Macdara Ferris

90' + 6'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Shamrock Rovers and Bohemians. Bohs will feel very hard done by with that result. They played excellently this evening and were certainly the better team in the second half. It was a penalty but the red card from ref Paul McLaughlin was too harsh IMO. Rovers are now 29 unbeaten in the league - one off the all time record of 30. They play Finn Harps away next week. St. Patrick's Athletic take over at the top of the table on goal difference.

90' + 2'

Yellow Card

Keith Buckley (Bohemians) is booked for a foul on Mandroiu.

90' + 1'

Sean Hoare is bleeding and has to go off. He comes back on with a new jersey with number 37 on it.

90'

Min of four mins.

90'

Aaron Greene runs it into the corner and wins a throw at the corner flag.

89'

Corner Kick

Ross Tierney (Bohemians) wins and takes a corner-kick as Lee Grace put the ball behind. Awful set piece from Tierney though as he puts it out of play.

88'

Aaron Greene doesn't attempt to go for the ball with Ciaran Kelly and Bohs have a free.

87'

Ciaran Kelly clatters through Graham Burke on half way and Rovers can slow this down with a free.

86'

Bohs press the Hoops into an error as they look to play from the back.

83'

Yellow Card

Sean Hoare (Shamrock Rovers) is booked as he and Ronan Finn took down Liam Burt. Alan Mannus makes a mess of two attempts to punch the ball clear. When ball comes back in Pico Lopes leaps higher than Georgie Kelly to clear.

80'

Substitution

Conor Levingston (in) - Ali Coote (out) (Bohemians).

76'

Substitution

Ciaran Kelly (in) - Keith Ward (out) (Bohemians).

76'

ASSIST!

Daniel Mandroiu (Shamrock Rovers) provides the assist.

76'

PENALTY SCORED!

Graham Burke (Shamrock Rovers) scores from the penalty spot as his effort is hit with enough power to beat through James Talbot's attempted save. Burke's third of the season and his second peno.

75'

Red Card

James Finnerty (Bohemians) is sent off. I think it was very harsh on the player. Looked like he was trying to tackle Danny Mandroiu who had run onto a lovely pass through from sub Rory Gaffney. 

71'

Yellow Card

Ali Coote (Bohemians) is booked for a cynical foul on Danny Mandroiu. Had to be done for Bohs.

71'

Substitution

Rory Gaffney (in) - Chris McCann (out) (Shamrock Rovers).

69'

Keith Buckley plays in a looping cross and Georgie Kelly wins the header above Lopes but it doesn't trouble Alan Mannus.

67'

Keith Ward steps across Chris McCann and fouls him on the left. Danny Mandroiu takes the free kick. He hits it low around the wall but it is blocked by Georgie Kelly behind the wall. 

66'

Georgie Georgie Georgie. What a miss. He opens up his body getting onto Ross Tierney's low cross. Bohs should be leading this game after that chance and on their second half performance. Lee Grace did just enough to put Kelly off without fouling .

63'

Substitution

Gary O'Neill (in) - Dylan Watts (out) (Shamrock Rovers).

61'

Yellow Card

Ronan Finn (Shamrock Rovers) is booked. Having brought him on for the yellow carded Sean Gannon that isn't great for Rovers. It was a poor tackle through the back of Tyreke Wilson.

60'

Corner Kick

Tyreke Wilson (Bohemians) takes a corner-kick after Georgie Kelly let the ball go behind. It came after Lee Grace was hesitant facing his goal and Alan Mannus needed to come out to clear.

57'

Substitution

Ronan Finn (in) - Sean Gannon (out) (Shamrock Rovers). That booking for Gannon likely the cause of his withdrawel as Liam Burt is a real danger down that side for the visitors.

56'

Chris McCann gives away a free taking down James Finnerty. Bohs take it quick and Ross Tierney's loss cross skips between the Bohs attack and Alan Mannus.

55'

Lovely diag from Keith Buckley to Liam Burt.

54'

Corner Kick

Tyreke Wilson (Bohemians) takes a corner-kick.

54'

Corner Kick

Tyreke Wilson (Bohemians) takes a corner-kick short and wins another one.

53'

Yellow Card

52'

52'

41'

Great Bohs play. Scramble in the Rovers box. Georgie Kelly looks to shoot and Pico Lopes blocks and gets back up to stop the impressive Liam Burt get a shot away. 

38'

Bohs really taking it to Rovers - no sitting back here - and it is making for a very entertaining game.

35'

Great pass by Chris McCann and Aaron Greene is clean through but he can't find the target. Awful miss by Greene.

34'

Danny Mandroiu sends it out to Graham Burke and his left foot shot is saved by James Talbot. 

31'

Georgie Kelly moves the ball away from Roberto Lopes and his shot forces Alan Mannus into a low save and he skips out to retrieve the rebound.

27'

20'

ASSIST!

Ali Coote (Bohemians) provides the assist.

20'

GOAL!

Ross Tierney (Bohemians) scores coming in at the back post to head home Ali Coote's cross from the left. Keith Long will be really pleased with that as it came after a super passing move by the Gypsies with Keith Ward centrally involved.

18'

Chris McCann plays a beaut of a ball through to Dylan Watts but his touch is too heavy and the ball ends up with James  Talbot.

17'

Corner Kick

Dylan Watts (Shamrock Rovers) takes a corner-kick that is just a bit too deep and Liam Scales ends up getting under it with a header.

15'

Roberto Lopes with two great defensive touches including a solid tackle on James Finnerty on half way as Bohs come into the game.

12'

And then Liam Burt has a fab chance to equalise as Bohs get the benefit of a loose pass. Tierney crosses low and Georgie Kelly steps over it and Burt has the whole goal to aim at but he puts it wide. Real let off for Rovers.

12'

Lots of Rovers pressure as Liam Scales' cross causes Bohs some difficulty. The visitors finding it hard to get on the ball.

Super run down the right from Ross Tierney who get the better of Roberto Lopes. Sean Hoare does well to stop the centre.

3'

Danny Mandroiu races through on the right and plays a low pass across the box to Graham Burke and James Talbot with a tidy save with his feet.
