60'

OWN GOAL!

Conor Crowley (Wexford) scores an own-goal!

SHELS TAKE THE LEAD! 

Fortuitous nonetheless as Conor Crowley tried to clear a gaolbound clearance from his own man - but he ended up doing so into his own net. Harsh on Wexford who have been excellent so far..

53'

Free Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

50'

Great play from Shelbourne sees Yoyo Mahdy's cross find Ryan Brennan on the edge of the penalty area - but Brennan can only shoot over the bar. He should have made Jimmy Corcoran work for that...

48'

No changes for either side as the second-half is underway. You get the sense this is a big half for Shelbourne - they will be looking at this as a chance to win no doubt

46'

Half-time at Tolka and it is scoreless - Wexford will be very pleased with their showing so far.. Long way to go however. 

45'

There will be 1 minute of added time...

43'

This has been a great half from Wexford - they have dealt with Shels very well indeed and are looking well-drilled in an attacking sense. This won't be easy for Shels

39'

Free Kick

36'

Dayle Rooney with some good play on the wing - and his cross finds a Shels head but it does find the back of the net... 

34'

Jack Doherty is receiving treatment for a head injury. He should be OK to continue

32'

Shelbourne have allowed Wexford to grow into this game even more so over that last few minutes - Paul Fox is causing the hosts a plethora of problems

28'

Some sloppy Shels play in midfield is costing them a bit here as Wexfird are growing into the game. The Reds look in control however. 

25'

Corner Kick

Jack Doherty (Wexford) takes a corner-kick.

24'

WHAT A CHANCE FOR WEXFORD! 

Paul Fox played the ball into the path of Jack DOherty - who then flicked the ball off to Conor Crowley - but Crowley could not convert and the ball went out for a corner. Crowley took too much out of the ball there..

23'

Free Kick

Luke Turner (Wexford) takes a free-kick.

20'

Ian Morris' side are starting to turn up the heat on Wexford at the moment. JJ Lunney is dominating the midfield exchanges as well

18'

Excellent play from Shels almost sees them unlock the Wexford defence - but JR Wilson's cross across the face of the goal is not met by Yoyo Mahdy - that was great from Shels with Ryan Brennan at the heart of it

16'

Close for Wexford as Paul Fox gets on the end of a misplaced clearance. However, the ex-Cabo winger can't convert with Clarke saving easily..

14'

Corner Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

14'

CLOSE FOR SHELS!!! 

Michael Barker's cross falls into the path of Poynton at the back post, but he can only stab is effort wide and out for a corner... 

12'

Shelbourne remain on top having not created anything at all just yet. You get the sense of this being a matter of when not if. 

9'

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.
