The game has ended between Athlone Town and Cork City.

90' + 4'

Late corner to the home side. Easily taken by McNulty 

90' + 2'

Substitution

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

89'

GOAL!

Jack Baxter (Cork City) scores.

Could be the clincher here. Baxter is the man who wins the ball back initially from a defender. Some neat interplay between himself, McGlade and Beineon-O' Brien Withmarsh, before the former takes it on and finishes confidently. 

88'

Yellow Card

Dale Holland (Cork City) is booked.

86'

Two successive blocks from Dylan Hand denies City

85'

Substitution

Shane Nealon (in) - Scott Delaney (out) (Athlone Town).

83'

Yellow Card

Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh (Cork City) is booked.

Pointless booking to give away as he tussles with his marker 

81'

Wixted tries to dig out a cross despite many players around him. Caught by McNulty though

79'

Daniel Mckenna has a go but it is easy enough for McNulty

75'

Substitution

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

71'

Substitution

David Brookes (in) - Jamie Hollywood (out) (Athlone Town).

70'

A few Cork City players are going down with fatigue at the moment. It is a demanding pitch to be fair 

67'

Byrne almost gets away from Gordon Walker but McNulty deals with it 

65'

And almost two at the other end. Played into Baxter who takes it first time. Schlingermann is equal to it yet again. 

64'

Close there. Kutris Byrne plays a great ball over the top into the path of Adam Wixted. McNulty comes out to meet him but Steven Beattie is the man who clears it up 

57'

Substitution

Jack Reynolds (in) - Brandon McCann (out) (Athlone Town).

56'

Break at the moment to allow players get some water in 

55'

Doonan has a chance for a shot but takes too long with it. City clear it away

Morrissey is taken down by a late challenge and City win a free-kick. Daly receives a yellow card 

17'

James Doona takes a shot from distance before it is blocked by Jack Baxter. The resulting corner is cleared 

11'

Jack Baxter has an effort which stings the hands of the goalkeeper. He manages to hold on to it 

8'

Gearoid Morrissey has an effort from outside the area but it is just over the bar 

8'

No real chances as of yet. The away side look decent enough on the ball. Yet to see any real chances from either side though

 Philip Morrissey reporting for Extratime.ie. A lovely evening here in Westmeath as the First Division returns again. Big game at both ends of the table tonight. The home side are currently placed in third and placed well when it comes to the promotion shake-up, Cork City, on the other hand, are second bottom and desperate for three points to see them move up the table.
