23'

Athlone - after their goal - are well in control of the game. Just as I type Halwax claims well from a Derek Daly cross. The ex-Bray winger has had a great game so far this evening..

19'

GOAL!

12'

Athlone Town nearly cause their own problems as Daniel McKenna's pass back to Schlingermann has too much on it...

10'

Another close shave - as Halwax somehow denies Stephen Meaney this time from another Derek Daly cross into the box. Cabinteely need to get to grips with this one...

1'

Good early opening for Athlone Town - but Adam Wixted heads wide from Derek Daly's cross. The former Bray winger had too much time on the ball there but Wixted could not convert..

0'

And the teams are almost set for kick-off. A big night awaits both who are 18 points apiece...

0'

Cabinteely have won 14 of the side’s 21 previous games since 2015, with Athlone winning just the three. Cabo won the last game 2-1 at the Athlone Town Stadium.

They have lost their last two games in a row against both UCD and Shelbourne, losing by a single goal on each occasion.

0'

Cabinteely are unchanged from last weekend's 1-0 defeat away to Athlone Town - while Athlone have made two swaps from last weekend's 4-4 draw with Wexford as Garry Comerford makes his first start, and David Brookes comes in for Tristan Noack-Hofmann...
