The game has ended between Cobh Ramblers and Cork City.
A massive win for the home-side. Not only is it a first win of the season at home, it is their first win at home against their city rivals since 1995. It keeps the distance between them and Wexford at the bottom of the table. And cuts the gap between them and Cork to a point. They certainly had to weather a storm for a lot of the game, but were able to win through.
Huge disappointment for Colin Healy though. They would have been huge favourites given the recent upturn in form. They created enough of opportunities, hitting the woodwork twice, but were twarted by a resolute defence. It is another blow to their hopes of promotion back to the top flight.
McGlade tries his luck from a free but Barron is equal to it
Ian Turner uses his experience to win a free kick when Bargary is unable to get past him
Can Cobh hold out with minutes to go?
O' Brien-withmarsh flicks it on from a throw in but no-one is there to connect to it
Alec Byrne tries his luck from outside the area. It sails high into the stand though
Almost an equaliser as O' Brien-Withmarsh toe-pokes it towards goal. Barron is able to deal with it though
Jack Walsh (in) - Jack Baxter (out) (Cork City).
A double subsitution almost straight after that goal. Colin Healy is going for it and brings on two strikers. Can Cobh hold out now?
Jake Hegarty (Cobh Ramblers) scores.
Busy few minutes. Cobh win a corner at the other end which is not dealt with properly. Devitt flicks it on and Hegarty gets his first of the season. Against the run of play but the home side are in front.
Darryl Walsh (in) - Cian Murphy (out) (Cobh Ramblers).
He has injured himself in commiting that foul and has to be removed.
Cian Murphy (Cobh Ramblers) is booked.
An obvious foul as Murphy almost rugby tackles Bargary who had embarked on a mazy run right through the Cobh back-line
Another chance for the away side. Cobh switch off from a ball into the area. Alec Byrne is first to it but his snap shot goes over.
Barron is struggling on a cross into his area. It falls to Bargary who shoots over
Good shot by Gearoid Morrissey which is deflected out for a corner. He is cursing his luck again as another effort hits the bar with Barron stranded
Jake Hegarty flicks it on from a throw in which finds Cooper. It is somewhat of an air shot though and cleared away
A cross is whipped in by Baragry but no-one is able to take advantage of it. It goes out for a corner before the ref blows up for a foul
It is half-time between Cobh Ramblers and Cork City.
The away side get us under way in this second-half. Can they make a breakthrough?
Cobh threaten at the end of this half with a corner. It could go anywhere but hacked away by the City defence though
George Heaven (Cork City) is booked.
Heaven is forced to give away a foul and a booking as he tackles Cooper. Cobh cannot profit from the set-piece though
McGlade's free-kick has power behind it and O'Riordan has to deal with it
Dylan McGlade (in) - Jonas Hakkinen (out) (Cork City).
The Finn is unable to recover from his issue, so is replaced by McGlade. Tactical alterations needed by the away side
Chance for a water break for both sides as Hakkinen is receiving treatment after taking a boot to the face
Big chance for Cobh. The ball pings around the area and eventually falls to Killian Cooper in space. He snatches at the shot though
Sean Barron (Cobh Ramblers) is booked.
A rare booking for a goalkeeper. The home net-minder goes into the book for pulling down Bargary just outside of his area. Cobh had got into a bit of a muddle after a long ball towards the City attacker. He had attempted to clear but didn't succeed in his effort.
Cobh claim that Hakkinen took a touch on a through ball. It is picked up by Mark McNulty to some mild protests
Bargary floats a cross into the box towards Darragh Crowley. He is under pressure though, and his header goes harmlessly over
Alec Byrne has a go but he is off target
Close! Cian Bargary is there at the back post after a blocked cross is recycled by Cork. It comes back in and he is only able to hit the post. Cobh breathe a sigh of relief
Neither side have really created too much of note yet. Cork are probably on front at the moment as a few sweeping passes from midfield have penned in the home side at times.
It is a glorious evening in St. Coleman's Park. A night that would have perfect for supporters of both sides. Soon hopefully.
It could be a hazard for both keepers though
Gordon Baxter got a stunning volley last week and full of confidence. He tries his luck again but it goes over the bar on this occasion.
