A corner for Bohs after Ali Coote forced an opening and then Rory Feely nearly profited six yards from goal as he collected the rebound. We're well into added time but Waterford will need to concentrate to see this out.
There will be four added minutes at the end of the game.
We're at the stage now where Bohs put tonnes of effort into working the ball upfield and then a Waterford player wallops it straight back where it came from. The danger isn't over yet but the Blues are nearly home and dry.
And that substitution makes a clear statement on Waterford's behalf. They appear happy with what they have as Mam-of-the-Match Junior Quitirna is replaced by centre back Kyle Ferguson.
Referee Graham Kelly makes himself very unpopular with the home crowd as he waves away calls for a foul on Quitirna as he bursts through the Bohemians defence. It emains 1-0 to Waterford with about seven minutes to play.
Waterford have a new weapon in the arsenal. Sub Greg Halford winds up a long throw and reaches the back post, prompting twenty seconds of panicked defending from Bohemians before the ball is finally cleared.
If Bohemains do get back into this game it will likely come from a chance created by Andy Lyons. He and Ali Coote have worked the right flank well for Bohs in this half and all their dangerous moments have come from these two.
A close call for Waterford as Ali Coote sets up Andy Lyons for a pop at goal. His hot is blocked and then the full back chipped the ball across goal from a tight angle, a situation that Darragh Power cleared up by heading behind for a corner.
While it's fair to say that the tempo of this game has dropped, it would also have to be said that both sides are poopping up with half chances that could quickly alter the balance of this game.
A really good chance there fro Waterford to extend their lead. Junior Quitirna was played in on goal but James Talbot did superbly to harry him wide and then block his attempted shot. Terrific goalkeeping!
A decent opening for Mutswunguma there but he hesitsted too long and was swallowed up by the Bohemians defence.
Just before that double substitution bu Bohemians, Ali Coote balzed wide of the Waterford goal from a chance set up by good hold up play from Georgie Kelly.
This half hasn't seen the same sense of urgency from Waterford and if they're not careful they will let Bohs back into the game. Everything seems a little bit sleepier in this half.
Prince Mutswunguma has worked his socks off for Waterford as the lone striker but he hasn't made the impact that the Blues need. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cian Kavanagh coming on around the 60 minute mark.
Another chance for Bohemians as full back Andy Lyons recieves a deft inside ball and is foiled only by brave diving stop by Brian Murphy.
A moment there as Eddie Nolan tries hi luck from the halfway line, no doubt inspired by Glen McAuley's extratime equaliser against Waterford a fortnight ago. Not to be. James Talbot saw it coming all the way.
Early signs of promise for Bohemians as the second half gets underway. A looping cross from Ali Coote almost found the forehead of Georgie Kelly but he proved in inch or two too short to reach it... and the assistant's flag went up too.
There will be 3 added minutes at the end of this half.
Phoenix Patterson (Waterford) scores. It followed about three chances in rapid succession following a corner from the right. The first was a shot from Quitirna, then a rebound off a Bohs defender was impressivly kept out by Talbot, but finally Patterson was on hand to poke the ball from close range.
Bohemians are working hard to find a way into this game but Waterford are defending well when needed. They are also, however, starting to look a bit profligate at the other end. They will soon have to face a charge of wasting chances if they don't sharpen up in front of goal.
A controversial moment as A high ball into Mutswunguma sees him wrestled away from it by a Bohs defender. I think it was James Finnerty but couldn't be certain. Anyhow, the ref, Graham Kelly, was having none of it despite the loud lobbying of the home crowd.
A delay in play after Rory Feely cleaned out Quitirna in the centre circle. In fairness to Feely, Quitirna had just nipped the ball off his tow, so mor a question of timing than malicious intent. Still, both players are down getting attention and referee is waiting to show Feely a yellow card.
A low ball across the danger area from John Martin is shanked by James Finnerty and the Bohs defender must be a very relieved man to see the ball screw narrowly wide of Bohs' far post.
Waterford are playing a 4-5-1 with Mutswunguma playing the lone striker and while their approach play has been generally excellent they have created very little for their point man.
Keith Ward and Tyreke Wilson combine on Bohemians' left for the latter to ping in a low cross that might have yielded a chance on goal but for the emphatic intervention of Blues defender Cameron Evans.
Andy Lyons scoops a diagonal ball into the Waterford box and Georgie Kelly somehow manages to direct his stooping header goalwards. It sails harmlessly wide and Kelly is left prone on the turf, eloquently expressing the frustrating afternoon that Bohemians have had of it so far.
Ali Coote (Bohemians) is booked for a cynical block on Phoenix Patterson.
Excellent play from Waterford. Again, Quitirna is at the heart of it, drawing a saving block from James Finnerty before passing his way along the edge of the box and firing wide of James Talbot's right hand post. The home crowd are loving this.
Junior Quitirna is down hurt now having gotten a smack of the ball in his fac. He should be fine to continue as the sun breaks through the blanket of fine drizzle that has accompanied this early part of the game.
Another fine cross from Quitirna on Waterford's left but this time it's an inch or two too high for John Martin rushing in at the back post. Waterford ooking very strong as the half progresses.
Lyons bursts forward fro Bohemians and his pass finds the feet of Ali Coote. He turned quickly and sprayed the ball into the path of Keith Ward who went down inside the box but no peno given. Then down to the other end where Bohs failed to clear and attack and a searching cross from the left flankby Qutirna was headed against the bar by John Martin. It might have squirmed across the line after bouncing off tablot but it was hacked off the line and away.
Rippling applause from the home fans after some tight midfield passing play but it ended with an overhit through ball from Shane Griffin. The Waterford massif clearly enjoy watching this team.
More good play from Waterford and again it comes from the right hand side. This time a long ball finds John Martin in space and he manages to wriggle a low pass inside to Prince Mutswunguma who's first-time shot is comfortabley held by Bohs keeper, James Talbot.
Waterford mount the first attack but interplay between Niall O'Keeffe and Junior Quitirna in the inside-right channel leads only to the assistant's flag and a free out for Bohemians as the off-side line is crossed.
Bohs are out... and here come Waterford. The stand rises to their feet as they step out and we're almost ready to go.
Rousing applause for the Waterford players as they leave the pitch at the end of their warm up. The Blues are looking for their 4th league win on the spin this afternoon, against a team that are pulling up trees in Europe but only have one win from their last three league outings.
There are four changes to the Waterford team that lined out against Drogheda last weekend. Eddie Nolan and Jack Stafford come into the back four in place of Greg Halford and Kyle Ferguson, while Junior Quitirna and Prince Mutswunguma come into the team in place of Aonthony Wordsworth and Cian Kavanagh.
Keith Long has given his squad a shake up for this game, resting six players from the side that started against PAOK during the week. There are three changes in the back line while midfielders Liam Burt and Ross Tierney take a seat on the bench. Keith Buckley, meanwhile, has the day off as he's not in the match day squad.
The team sheets have hit the press box and we'll have them up for you shortly.
There were 500 tickets sold for this game with "a few" still available this morning. Hopefully all will be taken up for a game that has had it's kick-off squeezed by Bohs playing in Europe on one side, and the Waterford hurlers playing an All-Ireland semi-final at the other.
We've just arrived at the RSC where it's overcast and breezy ahead of the league clash between a resurgent Waterford and Greece-bound Bohemians. The Blues were out on the pitch a few minutes ago but they've just gone in and now Bohs are out walking the land. Kick-off is at 2pm and we'll be bringing you the game details as the afternoon progresses.
