Live Updates for UCD -v- Cork City

Updates by

90' + 6'

That's it from me, folks. Have a good evening and mind yourselves.

90' + 6'

Colin Healy's charges' recovery from a wretched early-season four-game losing streak continues and they're now unbeaten in three, with the same number of consecutive clean sheets. They stay in eighth position. Andy Meyler's charges  are still unbeaten; they go a point clear of Shelbourne at the top of the table, though the Drumcondra men have a game in hand. 

90' + 6'

So that's it from the Belfield Bowl. A scoreless sharing of the spoils is perhaps a fair result, although the visitors may have shaded it in terms of chances. Jack Walsh's early header off the post was as close as either side came, but there was nothing clearcut thereafter. 

90' + 5'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between UCD and Cork City.

90' + 5'

UCD win a very late corner, but Harvey O'Brien is penalised for a perceived infringement, and that's the game.

90' + 4'

McNulty comes a long way to get a fist to a long free-kick from Behan. He clatters a team-mate and an opponent but gets the job done.

90'

Yellow Card

Gordon Walker (Cork City) is booked.

88'

Substitution

Donal Higgins (in) - Paul Doyle (out) (UCD).

88'

Substitution

Ciaran Behan (in) - Mark Dignam (out) (UCD).

87'

Williams spills Walker's cross. O'Brien-Whitmarsh is harshly penalised for a 50/50 challenge with the UCD 'keeper.

86'

Evan Weir's free-kick from deep is too long and runs for a goal-kick to the visitors.

84'

Oof. Bargary's free-kick from the edge of the box after Weir's foul on Crowley is deflected over by the defensive wall. That could have gone anywhere.

83'

Yellow Card

Evan Weir (UCD) is booked.

82'

Baxter's corner looks to be cleared for a City throw by O'Brien, but the throw is awarded to UCD. 

82'

Good energy from McGlade. He breaks the lines and feeds Crowley, whose cross is turned behind by Weir.

80'

Substitution

Eoin Farrell (in) - Evan Farrell (out) (UCD).

The stricken UCD player is replaced by his namesake.

79'

Yellow Card

Darragh Crowley (Cork City) is booked.

The City youngster gets himself booked for dragging back a UCD player on halfway.

78'

Bargary's corner is cleared as far as Morrissey on the edge of the UCD box. The City veteran's first touch is poor, however, and his shot is charged down.

77'

McGlade's first action is to win a corner off Eoin Farrell. The UCD defender may have injured himself in the process.

76'

Substitution

Dylan McGlade (in) - Cian Murphy (out) (Cork City).

76'

Tension mounting in the last few minutes, as neither side wants to make a mistake.

71'

McNulty drops Weir's long free-kick, but no UCD player can capitalise.

69'

Hakkinen's header from Bargary's deep free-kick is easily gathered by Williams.

68'

Good energy from UCD as they press Morrissey and Hurley. Keane eventually block's the left-back's attempted clearance out for a throw-in.

66'

Morrissey barges Keane to the ground. He's sailing close to the wind, what with being on a booking.

64'

Cian Murphy is rather harshly penalised after a tangle with Harvey O'Brien as he attempted to steal a march on the UCD right-back. Not much in that one.

63'

Weir's free-kick is cleared by Coleman for a corner. The same player's flag-kick is headed away by Hakkinen.

61'

Williams again struggles under a high ball, as Murphy challenges at the edge of the box for Walker's free-kick. The UCD stopper's botched punch is eventually cleared by his team-mates.

60'

Yellow Card

Sean Brennan (UCD) is booked.

The UCD midfielder is carded for a lunge on Gordon Walker.

60'

Substitution

Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh (in) - Jack Walsh (out) (Cork City).

59'

Doyle has a dig from distance after a spell of UCD possession. It flies wide by some way.

57'

Weir's dead ball hits the side-netting at the near post.

56'

Yellow Card

Gearóid Morrissey (Cork City) is booked.

The City stalwart goes in the book for dragging down Colm Whelan 25 yards out.

55'

Just before Lennon's introduction, Farrell's sortie down UCD's left allowed him to send an inviting cross in. Nobody was quite in the right place to meet it. Eventually Dignam's cross is sent behind by Hurley for a corner.

54'

Substitution

Adam Lennon (in) - Danu Kinsella Bishop (out) (UCD).

52'

Bargary's low free-kick is turned behind by Weir. The resultant corner is met almost on the goal-line by Crowley, but Williams somehow scrambles it out. Two narrow escapes in quick succession for the students.

51'

Murphy is dragged down by Brennan just outside the box on the left. Chance for City.

50'

Weir whips in a free-kick from thirty yards with good pace, but it's too close to McNulty. Then Walker breaks down City's right and the ball finds its way to Crowley. The youngster's effort from twenty yards is dragged to the left and wide.

48'

Whelan finds himself in acres of space thirty yards out. His effort is central and looks to be heading over, but McNulty makes sure by helping it on its way.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between UCD and Cork City has started.

45' + 2'

A largely scrappy half sprung to life towards the end. The Leesiders could well have gone ahead on 14 minutes when Cian Murphy couldn't capitalise on Walsh's header after it rebounded off the post. It took a stellar save from Carl Williams to deny Cian Bargary just before half-time, while Colm Whelan really should have scored in injury time but was crowded out in the six-yard box. All to play for in the second half, so don't go away.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between UCD and Cork City.

45' + 1'

Huge chance for UCD! Farrell bamboozles Hurley on the right and crosses. Doyle's shot is blocked but falls for Whelan inside the six-yard box. A heroic block from Coleman denies him, but the rebound sits up nicely. Whelan can't wait for the ball to come down, however, and his follow-up effort flies vertically into the air. City can eventually clear their lines, and that's the half.

44'

Chance for the visitors! Good work from Morrissey, who is straight into the action. Bargary cuts in from the left, and his effort produces a stunning save from Williams, who tips it over at full-stretch.

43'

Alec Byrne is forced off with what looks like a hamstring injury.

43'

Substitution

Gearóid Morrissey (in) - Alec Byrne (out) (Cork City).

40'

Better from UCD. A nice move ends with Doyle finding Whelan; the league's top scorer's effort from an angle whistles half a metre over the bar. The hosts' best chance so far.

39'

Whelan holds off Hakkinen in the box; he lays it off to Kinsella-Bishop but the latter's strike is mishit and bobbles into McNulyty's arms.

36'

Walsh shows tenacity to dig the ball away from a posse of UCD defenders. He gets to the bye-line but slips before he can get a cross in, and the ball runs for a goal-kick.

34'

Bargary's free-kick from deep on the left finds Crowley in space at the back post. He heads it back into the centre, but Farrell and Brennan combine to clear the danger.

30'

Murphy wins a free-kick on City's right. Baxter's delivery is ballooned, and runs for a goal-kick on the far side.

29'

Chance for UCD. Whelan extricates himself from a crowd of City defenders in the box by nutmegging Coleman. His shot from a tight angle on the left flies across goal, just evading the far post.

24'

Shout for a penalty for the visitors. Todd attempts to let Walker's through ball run for a goal-kick, but Cian Bargary gets the wrong side of him. Todd appears to bring Bargary down, but Moran is uninterested.

21'

A scrappy period of play ends with Dignam on the ball 25 yards out; his effort is wild and doesn't trouble McNulty.

20'

Dara Keane's cross from deep on the right is fractionally too long for Paul Doyle, who can only get the merest touch. The ball runs out for a goal-kick.

18'

Dignam finds space on the left and tries to pick out Whelan in the box. Coleman gets there first to clear.

15'

The resultant corner is cleared, despite another unconvincing effort from Williams to influence proceedings. But what a chance for the visitors from Walker's original cross.

14'

So close for the visitors! Walker's cross from the right tempts Williams, but Walsh is too strong in the air. The City centre-forwards header bounces off the post, and Cian Murphy's follow-up is blocked on the line. Corner for City.

11'

Todd eases Walsh off the ball as the latter advances menacingly towards the box. Walsh's attempt to win the ball back is too enthusiastic for referee Oliver Moran.

8'

Decent ball in from City's right from Murphy. Sam Todd's defensive header into the air is claimed by Williams.

7'

Notably, a number of City's players have had haircuts since last week. Good to see that they were happy to wait until lockdown rules had eased before seeing to their coiffures.

4'

Some head tennis at the edge of the UCD area ends with another foul on Keane. The game is yet to settle.

3'

Early chance for UCD, as Alec Byrne fouls Dara Keane centrally. Evan Weir's delivery, however, is cleared easily by the City defence.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between UCD and Cork City has kicked off.

0'

Kick-off is at 7:45pm, so hang tough.

0'

The hosts' line-up shows two changes from last week's 3-2 victory over Treaty United, with Carl Williams replacing Lorcan Healy in goal and Danu Kinsella-Bishop coming in for Liam Kerrigan. Meanwhile Colin Healy's visitors are unchanged from last week's 5-0 win at home to Wexford.

0'

UCD have not played Cork City in a First Division game before – with the last time the sides met being in October 2019 at Turner’s Cross.

Cork City have only lost to UCD four times since 2008 – and have won 12 times in that 16-game period.

Andy Myler’s Students are the highest scoring side in the First Division this season, scoring 21 goals in their 7 league games so far.
