Galway will be delighted to have secured a point in the circumstances. One nil down and with a man disadvantage. Another late goal for them after efforts against Wexford and Treaty.
It feels like a defeat for the home side though. There were occasions when they were leading where they could have added to it. They failed to deal with a cross into the area properly and paid the price for it.
City are fail to take care of the first ball into the box and Boylan is able to head the ball back into the area. Nugent is there in the centre to nod it home unmarked
Rory Keating does well to beat his man and puts in a dangerous cross along the area. No-one there to take advantage of it though
Galway must come out in order to get anything from this game. Expect quite a few long balls
One nil to City! All of 25 yards out
Great shot by McGlade just deflected wide
McGlade is found from a Coleman knock down. He puts his shot into the empty shed though
Hakkinen with a superb clearing header from another corner. He clears yet again from the resulting throw in
Excellent tackle by Maurice Nugent as Dylan McGlade breaks through and is poised to shoot.
Both sides need to keep their heads. Far too many players giving away stupid fouls and bookings
The stop-start nature of this half is playing more into Galway's hands at the moment. City are getting frustrated
Galway have the ball in the net but adjudged to have been offside. McNulty take the free quickly and McGlade just fails to keep it in play
Long throws from Galway are causing a degree of concern for City. The latest one forces McNulty into a sharp save. The ref had called up for a foul anyway
Do Cork continue with their three at the back formation with only one Galway up front for them? Or do they try and be brave by sticking on another attacker.
Can Galway keep their composure after that perceived injustice?
Half-time here and no doubt that sending off will be a major talking point afterwards. Both sides fairly evenly matched, with Cork having slightly more of the chances. How will both sides respond after the break?
Red card for Stephen Walsh! Looks like he kicked out at one of the City players during that corner. Galway players are not happy. Johnny Glynn has been sent off as well for protesting too.
Players down in the city area at the moment after another Galway set-piece. Remains to be seen what happened
City would have been aggreived if Galway had scored here. A ball is played up. Walker and Hurley are competing for it. Bounces up and hits the City defenders hand. It is played quickly but Coleman just manages to get it clear.
An excuse for the players to take on some advise and water as Galway have a player seeking treatment
Free-kick routine out on the right for Galway. It is played short but skied over
Moment of panic for the City defence as the ball is played over the top after a corner at the other end. McNulty rushes clear to intercept before anything of danger occurred
The game is really beginning to open up here now
Firm tackle up the pitch as Cian Murphy goes in late. The ref warns him on this occasion
First major chance for the away side. Boylan puts in a cross which finds Michael Place. His shot brings out the first real save for Mark McNulty
City are continuing with the high pressure up the pitch. Morrissey wins the ball again and Bargary eventually finds himself in space. His shot is off target though
Close here! Gearoid Morrissey wins the ball in midfield and plays it forward to O' Brien-Withmarsh. He lays it off to Cian Murphy whose shot goes just past the post. They are the more confident side so far
A concerted period of pressure by the home side as Galway are pegged back at the moment. It eventually goes out for a goal kick
Dan Murray has the glee of a small child at Christmas as Cian Bargary lines up a long throw. Cleared by Galway though.
It looks like he was unable to shake off that knock properly. A bit of a reshuffle necessary as Dylan McGlade comes on in his place.
Ronan Hurley is off getting treatment at the moment after going down under a challenge. He seems okay to continue but perhaps one that needs to be watched
Hakkinen does well to win the ball as Galway threaten again
Busy opening to this game. Galway win a free-kick just outside the City penalty area. It is straight into the wall however. City break with pace and Cian Bargary collects it down the right hand side. He carries it until an angled effort. He perhaps should have played it inside as there was support for him
An early chance for Cork City sees Cian Bagary break down the right flank and unleash a powerful shot at Conor Kearns. The Galway keeper dived low to save.
