That's it from me. Have a good night, folks.
So Cabinteely take the spoils. City dominated the first half without ever threatening Adam Hayden's goal. Cabinteely shaded the second without ever threatening Mark McNulty's goal, but fortunately for them they didn't have to, as the visitors were obliging enough to do the hosts' scoring for them. Cruel luck for the Leesiders' George Heaven but in truth his side didn't deserve much more than they got.
McGlade's second corner in quick succession leads to a third, which is taken by Galvin. Cabinteely clear without much fuss, and that's that.
It's cleared for another.
Bargary wins a corner for City. This is it for them.
Into the first of four added minutes, and McNulty has his second moment of the game as he dawdles on the ball forty yards from goal. A fortunate ricochet spares his blushes for now and he can clear to Hurley.
Chance for City! McGlade's cutback from the left falls to Walsh, but he can only find Hayden's midriff from a tight angle. That may have been their chance.
Cabinteely looking the more likely side to score the second goal here. Dalton's cross is put behind by Heaven for a corner to the hosts. City clear, but Cabinteely work the ball back to Hayden. The game is getting away from the vistors.
Another McGlade corner, but Cabinteely stand firm. City are looking more and more laboured.
Pressure from the visitors. McGlade threatens from the left but his run is funnelled across goal. Eventually Beattie's cross is overhit and the danger subsides.
McGlade with a free-kick in an identical position to that from which he had his last effort. He drills it straight into the wall.
It seems Pat Devlin has now been booked for remonstrating with the referee after Dalton's booking.
So close for the visitors, as another scud from Bargary is only cleared as far as Walsh. His effort is tipped onto the bar by Hayden and rebounds to safety. Excellent save from the home stopper.
Bargary's long throw is headed towards goal by Galvin, but Hayden claims easily.
Morrissey tries to slip Walsh through on goal, but Hayden is out to smother them ball.
Waters runs at the City defence down the left-hand channel. His effort on goal loops over McNulty's crossbar. Not sure if he meant that as a chip.
Beattie talks himself into the book after Waters wins a soft free-kick at Cabinteely's corner flag.
Casey runs at Bargary, but slices his cross behind. A good opportunity to put more pressure on the City defence goes to waste.
Hard to understand the physics of how that happened, given the way Heaven was set and the angle at which the ball came across. Very unfortunate.
Oh dear. A cross from Cabinteely's right by Labutis is sliced into his own net by City's centre-half.
Morrissey takes a yellow for a trip in the centre circle.
Blackbyrne clears McGlade's corner to Waters, who is fouled in the centre circle.
A deflection off the wall sends it behind for a corner.
Murphy buys a free-kick from Knight about thirty yards out. McGlade lines it up.
Heaven has taken a knock and is receiving treatment at the edge of his own box. He's okay to continue for the moment.
Murphy threatens to break through for City, but a loose touch allows McWilliams to stride away with the ball. The pitch played its part again there.
The less said about that half of football, the better. Let's hope the second 45 is better. I'll be bringing it to you in about fifteen minutes.
McGlade picks up a loose clearance, but slashes at his effort from thirty yards. It sails wide, and that's the half.
Dalton runs at Hurley; the City defender deals with it comfortably. However Bargary then loses out to O'Neill, and Dalton's cross is fumbled by McNulty. Thankfully for the veteran there is nobody in white in close enough proximity to capitalise.
Finally a fairly threatening effort, as a shot from distance whistles over Hayden's crossbar.
Cabinteely show a bit more endeavour, and force a few skirmishes in the middle of the pitch. The passage of play ends with a foul by Aspil on Coleman. Not a great spectacle, this.
Bargary plays the ball wide for Murphy, but his attempted cross is blocked by McWilliams.
The corner is cleared to Bargary. He attempts to take on three Cabinteely players but is dispossessed on halfway.
Cabo's best chance so far, as O'Neill forces Heaven to fire the ball back towards McNulty. It's hit at an inadvisable pace, but goes three yards wide of the goal for a corner.
A good surge forward from defence by Coleman. The ball is worked to McGlade, whose shot is deflected for a corner. The delivery is poor and is cleared for a throw.
The throw-in produces a corner, which City clear easily.
A half-chance for Cabo as a free-kick from deep on their right leads to a scramble around the penalty spot. City eventually manage to clear for a throw.
An avant garde moment here, as the coverage has skipped back to the fifth minute. We then revert to real time, where City have another corner. A better delivery from McGlade leads to a header by Heaven which is cleared off the line by Dean Casey. A close call for the hosts there.
Another long throw from the City left produces a corner. McGlade overhits it, and is caught offside when the ball finds it way back to him.
A scrappy few minutes, as the pitch seems to be making it difficult for both sides. That may be a generous assessment.
McNulty has his first moment of the game, as he shanks a free-kick from the edge of his box out of play on halfway.
Long throw from the left from City. Morrissey's snapshot from twelve yards after a scramble is gathered by Hayden.
McGlade's resultant free-kick is straight down Hayden's throat.
Blackbyrne booked for Cabinteely after Bargary is too quick for him.
And we're live. McGlade takes a corner from the left that goes all the way across the six-yard box, evading everyone. The ball runs for a throw-in on the far side.
Unfortunately LOI TV, who are broadcasting this evening's game, appear to be having some difficulties. Please bear with us, folks.
Both teams make two changes from last week's line-ups. Alex Aspil and Luke McWilliams replace Andy O'Brien and Eoin Massey for Cabinteely, while Steven Beattie and Alec Byrne replace Gordon Walker and Cory Galvin for the visitors.
The only previous meeting between these two sides was a thriller at this venue in the FAI Cup first round in 2019. A Ronan Hurley equaliser for the southerners in the last minute of extra-time forced a 2-2 draw and a penalty shoot-out, after which City prevailed 5-4.
