Live Updates for Waterford -v- Finn Harps

90' + 7'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Waterford and Finn Harps.

All to play for again in the relegation zone. This results confirms the fact that Longford are down to the first division. Waterford have clawed back the gap to their guests to a single point. Dundalk have failed to win which keeps them hovering around the danger zone also. 

Results and points are going to be critical for any of these sides to save themselves. Exciting for the neutral but tense ridden for those involved 

Good night and good luck 

90' + 4'

GOAL!

Junior Quitirna (Waterford) scores.

Another goal on the break to seal the three points. Patterson collects the ball before playing in Junior to finish high into the top corner past the despairing McGinley. Done and dusted here. 

90' + 2'

ASSIST!

Junior Quitirna (Waterford) provides the assist.

90' + 2'

GOAL!

John Martin (Waterford) scores.

That might be the killer blow. The ball is coughed up in the Waterford area and they manage to break with Junior to the fore. He breaks into the penalty area before laying it across to John Martin to slot it home. Unselfish play which had the key result. 

90'

Seven minutes to be played. Can Waterford hang on?

89'

Substitution

Luke Rudden  - Mark Coyle  (Finn Harps).

87'

Wordsworth has a go after a free kick is half cleared. McGinley is able to take it cleanly 

84'

Has there been a game in recent history where both starting goalkeepers don't manage to finish the game? Answers on a postcard please

80'

Yellow Card

Kyle Ferguson (Waterford) is booked.

75'

Yellow Card

Conor Barry (Finn Harps) is booked.

The obligatory Ollie booking....

75'

PENALTY SCORED!

Tunde Owolabi (Finn Harps) scores from the penalty spot.

So Murphy is sent off which requires Matthew Connar to come on for Shane Griffin and immediately face into a penalty. He gets his hands to the spot kick but it has enough power to evade his hold and trickles into the bottom corner. Harps are back in the game. Expect to hear much about this after the game if Harps manage to get a result. 

74'

74'

Substitution

Karl O'Sullivan  - Conor Barry  (Finn Harps).

74'

Yellow Card

Greg Halford (Waterford) is booked.

72'

Red Card

Brian Murphy (Waterford) is sent off.

Drama! The Waterford keeper sees red for pushing over Kosovar Sadiki. A penalty as well?

68'

ASSIST!

Kyle Ferguson (Waterford) provides the assist.

68'

GOAL!

Junior Quitirna (Waterford) scores.

A massive goal in the context of this game and the run-in. A long ball is played forward which Mark McGinley looks to have won in a race with the Waterford striker. The ball squirms out of his grasp though and Junior is able to tap into an empty net. 

66'

There is a huge amount of tension out there as both sides see what is at stake. Patterson almost finds room to the left of the area but Shane McEleney is able to pull off a strong tackle to deny him. 

65'

The ball bounces around in the penalty area following a Harps corner. Murphy is able to claim it before anyone is able to knock it in. 

60'

Yellow Card

Adam Foley (Finn Harps) is booked.

53'

John Dunleavy and Greg Halford are both down now after a clash of heads 

51'

Martin is down at the moment seeking treatment but he seems okay to continue 

49'

Owolabi gets a shot off this time but just to the left of the far post

48'

Strong and decisive tackle by Shane Griffin stops Owolabi in his tracks 

46'

Substitution

John Dunleavy  - Dan Hawkins  (Finn Harps).

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Waterford and Finn Harps has started.

45' + 3'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Waterford and Finn Harps.

Disappointing showing from Harps in this half. Waterford will be delighted though. Within a point of their rivals as it stands 

44'

Harps are definitely missing the cut and thrust that is normally provided by the mercurial Barry McNamee. All a bit mundane in the attacking sense at the moment

42'

Harps have an opportunity with a free outside the area. It sails harmlessly over the bar

41'

Yellow Card

Anthony Wordsworth (Waterford) is booked.

34'

Substitution

Mark McGinley  - Gerard Doherty  (Finn Harps).

31'

Patterson chances his luck from a free after a coming together just outside the area. It floats just over the bar. 

27'

Greg Halford is able to float in a deep crossbut no-one is alive to the chance and it drifts away. 

23'

Olowabi strikes for goal but he has already been flagged up for offside. 

19'

GOAL!

Phoenix Patterson (Waterford) scores.

Breakthrough for the home side! And somewhat out of the blue. The ball is played in and cleared out albeit without much convinction. Patterson takes a chance from outside the area which creeps past Doherty into the bottom corner. First blood to the blues. 

8'

And now the home side have a chance. Anthony Wordsworth finds Pheonix Patterson down the left flank. He cuts inside with an effort which Doherty has to get down and save. 

7'

Tunde Olowabi has an early chance for the visitors but the experienced Brian Murphy is able to deal with it. The former has been in great form recently and will be a key threat for the home defense.

Good evening and welcome to the RSC for tonight's encounter between Waterford and Finn Harps. My name is Philip Morrissey and will be providing you with the updates for this crucial relegation fight. Extratime as always busy across the leagues this weekend. 

The home side might be involved in a Semi-final next weekend against Bohs, but the reality is that anything less than a win could see them consigned to a relegation play-off. Harps are just above them and another win will probably see them safe for another season. Dundalk seem to have pulled themself clear of danger and a win for Drogheda against already doomed Athlone will see them safe. 

A must for the home team. Kick-off in less than ten minutes
