Live Updates for Cork City -v- Shelbourne

Updates by Diarmuid Daly

90' + 7'

That's all from me, folks. Enjoy the rest of your evening and stay safe out there.

90' + 7'

The visitors leapfrog Cabinteely into third place, behind UCD on goal difference. The hosts, meanwhile, drop to third from bottom due to Cobh Ramblers' win away to Wexford. Their fans will be grateful that relegation isn't possible this year.

90' + 7'

And that's the game. After going behind to Dylan McGlade's dubious early penalty, Shelbourne gathered themselves and Ally Gilchrist's header from Georgie Poynton's fine corner-kick levelled matters.  Jack Walsh's sending off on the half-hour mark gave Cork City a mountain to climb and the hosts did not have a chance of note thereafter. Shane Farrell put the Tolka Park outfit in front just after half-time and the visitors looked comfortable from there. Gearóid Morrissey's rash challenge on Yoyo Mahdy gave the hosts an injury-time opportunity to put a gloss on the scoreline from the penalty spot which was availed of the Saudi-born striker. A 3-1 win for the away side was the least that they deserved.

90' + 7'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Cork City and Shelbourne.

90' + 6'

We're in the death throes here, as the match winds towards its inevitable conclusion.

90' + 5'

Substitution

Alex Cetiner (in) - Shane Farrell (out) (Shelbourne).

90' + 2'

Ill-advised from Morrissey, as he dived in on Mahdy to concede the spot-kick. The City skipper should have known better.

90' + 1'

PENALTY SCORED!

Yoyo Mahdy (Shelbourne) scores from the penalty spot.

Mahdy slots it high to McNulty's right. The CIty stopper was close, but the strike was too powerful.

90'

PENALTY!

90'

Mahdy breaks clear down the left; his cross is returned with interest by Hurley for a throw-in.

86'

O'Brien-Whitmarsh wins a free-kick wide on the right for City. Morrissey's ball in is cleared by Brennan as far as Holland (the player, not the former Dutch province) at the edge of the box. The youngster's lofted effort is easy for Clarke to claim underneath his crossbar.

84'

Farrell is looking for a second goal, but his right-footed effort is blootered onto the Curragh Road after Barker's cross breaks for him.

83'

City are at least getting on the ball a bit more now. Byrne sets himself for a rumble forward from a central position, but he's crowded out with his head down when an attempt to pick out a team-mate may have been better-advised.

81'

This is what passes for a chance for the home side, as they win a free-kick just outside the centre circle. Holland's lofted set piece is easily-claimed by Clarke.

78'

Last roll of the dice for Colin Healy, as the Fermoy striker comes on and the centre half's evening is Finnish.

77'

Substitution

Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh (in) - Jonas Hakkinen (out) (Cork City).

75'

Mark McNulty goes down holding his knee. He's good to continue, for the moment, after treatment.

73'

Lunny has assumed the Poynton role and is being afforded acres to probe at City's soft centre. Another reverse ball finds Mahdy, who is crowded out in the box. The ball is recycled to the former Bohs player, whose left-footed curler from distance is wayward.

72'

Strange call from Mark Lynch, as Coleman brings Mahdy down at the edge of the box. However the referee gives a free out to the former Limerick and St. Pat's player.

71'

Lunny's reverse ball down the right-hand channel to Brennan is nicely-measured, but the substitute is offside.

69'

Substitution

Ryan Brennan (in) - Michael O'Connor (out) (Shelbourne).

67'

Gilchrist close to a second, as the Scot's header from the resultant flag-kick is palmed over by McNulty.

66'

A long spell of possession from the visitors ends with Kevin O'Connor winning a corner off Kargbo. After being recycled, Michael O'Connor's strike is blocked for another corner by Hakkinen.

62'

It looks like referee Mark Lynch is struggling with a knock; we may also be seeing a change in that department. However after a brief medical consultation he is deemed fit to continue.

60'

Substitution

Yoyo Mahdy (in) - George Poynton (out) (Shelbourne).

A stricken Poynton is replaced by the former UCD striker. 

58'

Half a sniff for the home side, as Murphy chases a long ball down the right. Clarke comes a long way from his goal, probably too long, but clears over the sideline.

57'

The two O'Connors link up again, as Kevin finds Michael unmarked six yards out. His free header finds the butt of the right-hand upright and goes wide. A golden opportunity spurned there, and City are on the rack.

56'

Yellow Card

Michael O'Connor (Shelbourne) is booked.

O'Connor goes in the book for a late challenge on Hakkinen

55'

Substitution

Cian Murphy (in) - Darragh Crowley (out) (Cork City).

52'

A lovely flick by Michael O'Connor after a cross from the left is picked up by Farrell. His left-footed effort is two yards wide of McNulty's far post. That was a good chance.

48'

A City clearance breaks to Lunny, whose shot from 20 yards in a central position is blocked by Hakkinen.

47'

ASSIST!

JJ Lunney (Shelbourne) provides the assist.

City's resistance lasts about a minute and a half, as a mishit shot from Lunny finds Farrell, who's evaded the slumbering Hurley. The Shels winger's shot from the right-hand corner of the six-yard box beats McNulty all ends up.

47'

GOAL!

Shane Farrell (Shelbourne) scores.

Shels hit the front!

46'

Substitution

Dale Holland (in) - Dylan McGlade (out) (Cork City).

For the hosts, Dale Holland has replaced Dylan McGlade, who was anonymous after his early penalty.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Cork City and Shelbourne has started.

We're back underway at Turner's Cross. 

45' + 2'

I'm off to grab a half-time cuppa, or maybe something stronger. See you on the other side.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Cork City and Shelbourne.

And that's the half. City hit the front on 8 minutes with a debatable penalty which was dispatched by Dylan McGlade. However Ally Gilchrist headed a deserved leveller after 20 minutes from a pinpoint Poynton corner. City striker Jack Walsh then saw red after a clash with Shane Farrell two-thirds of the way through the half. Shelbourne looked the better of the two sides before that point but have been oddly cautious since, as if not knowing what todo with their numerical advantage. Ian Morris will be looking to correct that at the break, while Colin Healy has his work cut out to get anything from this game for his side.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Cork City and Shelbourne.

45' + 1'

That really looked like a foul throw from Hurley on the Derrynane side, but I don't think the referee is giving one of those after the red card.

45'

Morrissey clears the corner as far as McManus in the inside-right channel; his shot is dragged wide of the near post.

44'

Wonderful ball from deep on the left from Dayle Rooney into the corridor of uncertainty. McNulty looked all at sea and Hurley has to chest it behind for the corner. Palpitation-inducing stuff from the City netminder.

42'

Kevin O'Connor finds his namesake Michael with a cross from the left; the latter's header is easy for McNulty to take low to his left.

41'

Poynton's corner is fizzed low into a ruck of players; nobody can get a clean strike and the ball runs wide on the far side.

40'

Wonderful play from Brendan Clarke, who contrives between himself and the corner flag to keep in a wayward backpass from Farrell. His clearance starts a move which leads to Kevin O'Connor winning a corner on the left.

38'

Not much going on since the sending off, being honest, with both sides take turns to lose possession.

35'

On the plus side, a bustling display in his first start and a sending off against Shelbourne in his second means that Walsh is well on his way to cult hero status at Turner's Cross. 

33'

The Leesiders are up against it now, if they weren't before. 

32'

Red Card

Jack Walsh (Cork City) is sent off.

Jack Walsh receives his marching orders for a push on Farrell. Not much in it, by the look of it.

30'

A bit of argy-bargy over on the Derrynane side, as Farrell hits the deck after a challenge from Walsh. Very difficult to see what's happened, but...

30'

The Leesiders are finding it very difficult to play out through Shelbourne. Walsh, Crowley and McGlade have been virtual spectators so far.

28'

Big chance for Shelbourne, as Farrell runs onto MIchael O'Connor's flick. The angle is too tight and his shot flies wide on the far side of McNulty's goal.

26'

Poynton's resultant free-kick hits the wall; Darragh Crowley and Morrissey clear it between them.

25'

Yellow Card

Alec Byrne (Cork City) is booked.

Byrne is booked for following through on a clearance from the edge of his own area.

24'

Poynton's free-kick from deep is headed across goal by Gilchrist, but Kouogun can't steer it back into the mixer.

23'

Good and all as Poynton's delivery was, however, City's defence will be disappointed with their failure to deal with the set piece, which was into an area in which you'd expect McNulty to claim.

22'

It's no more than the visitors deserve; they've been the more dangerous-looking side so far.

20'

ASSIST!

George Poynton (Shelbourne) provides the assist.

20'

GOAL!

Ally Gilchrist (Shelbourne) scores.

Goal for Shels! Poynton's second corner finds Gilchrist, who can't miss with a free header from three yards.

20'

Poynton's corner is wicked, and McNulty has to claw it behind for another.

18'

Very poor challenge out on the left-hand side from McGlade on Lunney leads to another free-kick for Shels. Rooney swings it in, but Coleman's defensive header is good and puts it away for a corner on the far side.

15'

Walsh's near-post header from City's second corner is wide. More positive from the home side.

14'

So close for City. McGlade's corner from the right is met by Morrissey at the near post; his header is deflected up and onto the bar and goes out for a corner.

13'

City getting sloppy again under an aggressive press from Shels. Twice in quick succession they lose possession, but Shels can't capitalise.

12'

Free-kick in a dangerous area wide on the right for the visitors. Rooney swings it in, but Heaven's header loops high and McNulty can claim.

10'

Michael O'Connor latches onto a long ball up the right channel and volleys just wide on the near side under pressure from Hakkinen. McNulty looked to have it covered.

8'

PENALTY SCORED!

Dylan McGlade (Cork City) scores from the penalty spot. McGlade sends Clarke the wrong way from twelve yards. Excellent spot-kick from the former Blyth Spartans man

7'

Very soft penalty, as Coleman goes down under an innocuous-looking challenge from Kouogun.

7'

Penalty to Cork City!

5'

Scrappy opening minutes here; City are struggling to get out of their own half but the visitors have lacked fluency, despite having more territory.

2'

There appears to be a late change to the home side's line-up, with Uniss Kargbo replacing Steven Beattie. 

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Cork City and Shelbourne has kicked off.

We're underway at the Cross.

0'

The teams are out and the pre-match formalities are almost over. Former City defender Kevin O'Connor wins the coin toss and elects to play into the St. Anne's End in the first half.

0'

Kick-off is at 7:45pm, so stay tuned.

0'

Colin Healy's home side shows one change from last week's defeat to Athlone Town, with Darragh Crowley replacing Cian Bargary. Ian Morris, meanwhile, makes three changes from last week's first win of the season at home to Wexford, with Maxim Kouogan, Brian McManus and Shane Farrell coming in for John Ross Wilson, Brian McManus and Ryan Brennan.
