GOAL!

Ronan Murray (Drogheda United) scores. It has been coming and it's no less than Drogheda deserve really.

Doyle not happy with how easily Lyons went down for the free kick on the edge of the box. Ronan Murray curls the free kick towards goal and somehow beats Steacy at his near post as the ball nestled into the top corner.

1-0 Drogheda

30'

Dylan Grimes whips a free right into the crowded box but the referee blows for offside 

Drogheda quick on the break again. Chris Lyons is looking really up for it tonight. He breaks free on the left of the box before finding Markey unmarked towards the back of the box. Markey can't get his effort on target.

Drogheda maintain their good pressure, Dane Massey just clears the crossbar with a powerful header yards from goal. The home side are getting closer

25'

Kane picks up the ball from Doyle. Gets to the edge of the box and shoots towards goal but his attempted curler catches the wind and sails harmlessly wide

23'

Claims for handball off O'Driscoll but the referee waves it away as there wasn't much he could do with Brown's drive hitting him from close range

Better from Longford. Dobbs does well to break free from Deegan and almost finds Grimes with the through ball but Phillips gets his leg in the way to avert the danger

20'

Longford having to do all of the defending at the moment but McDonnell has started the game really well at the back

16'

Both sets of defences on top at the moment. Drogheda look dangerous on the break with their pace. Chris Lyons just glanced another header wide of the post from a corner.

8'

Paddy Kirk takes the ball down with a brilliant touch but there's nobody in the box quick enough to meet his cross into the box.

Moments later and Drogheda break quickly down the right with James Brown. Brown accelerates past Kirk and into the Longford half before whipping a quick cross onto the head of Lyons.

Lyons directs a good effort towards goal but not quite enough on it to trouble Steacy

5'

The game has started at a frantic pace. Plenty of hustle and bustle in midfield but no chances of note yet

1'

The game has just kicked off in what is a sunny but cool evening here in Drogheda! Quite the breeze as well so hopefully plenty of silky skills on the ground this evening!
