GAME ON!

The game between Shamrock Rovers and Waterford has kicked off.

0'

Biggest league crowd in Tallaght since COVID-19 has been 1,500 but reckon 3,000+ here tonight including a vocal away support to my right here in the East Stand.

0'

Rob Harvey is the official in charge this evening. Ronan Finn is back to skipper the Hoops while Niall O'Keefe has the armband for the Blues.

0'

Three changes for the Blues as Anthony Wordsworth, Prince Mutswunguma and Greg Halford come into the team that drew 1-1 at the RSC with Dundalk last week. Kyle Ferguson, Cian Kavanagh and Jack Stafford all drop to the bench from that game.

0'

The in-form team in this fixture is the visitors who have won six and drawn two of their last nine. The Hoops have lost their last four games - one league, one FAI Cup and two European qualifiers. They have won five of their last six league games.

0'

No place for Joey O'Brien or Graham Burke in the Rovers squad. They both started in last week's 2-1 loss in Finn Park. Lee Grace and Neil Farrugia listed on the bench on their return from injury. Farrugia was injured when these teams played last here in Tallaght in June and this is his first appearance in the Rovers squad since then. Last week Stephen Bradley only names six subs but can call on nine this evening.

Good evening from Tallaght Stadium. It is overcast and 18 degrees with a wind whipping down off the Dublin mountains to my left. We have an 8pm kick off between the Hoops and the Blues.
