Live Updates for Dundalk -v- Newtown

90'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Dundalk and Newtown. A fair result on the balance of play. It is Dundalk's joint biggest win in Europe and it surely gives them one foot in the next round. 

90'

GOAL!

Han Jeongwoo (Dundalk) scores. Han heads home from close range from Leahy's assist. The ref has the whistle out ready to blow this one up. 

88'

Substitution

Rhys Hesden  - Jamie Breese  (Newtown).

88'

Substitution

Alfie Jones  - James Davies  (Newtown).

88'

Substitution

Dylan Downs  - Nicolas Rushton  (Newtown).

83'

The game has descended into a bit of a lethargic scrappy patch. Dundalk will be hoping their fresh legs can help them see this game out or nab another. 

80'

Substitution

Ole Erik Midtskogen  - David McMillan  (Dundalk).

80'

Substitution

Wilfried Zahibo  - Will Patching  (Dundalk).

76'

Aaron Williams tries a shot from range, out of frustration more than anything, and it peters harmlessly wide. 

75'

Substitution

Han Jeongwoo  - Daniel Kelly  (Dundalk).

73'

Patrick McEleney tries one from distance, but it's caught by the Red's netminder. 

72'

Duffy rolls it back for Leahy in the box and he could shoot but tries a cross, it pings off a red shirt, and out for a corner. 

69'

Micheal Duffy cuts in and hits a daisy-cutter goalwards but  David Jones is equal to it. 

68'

Substitution

James Rowland  - Sean McAllister  (Newtown).

65'

Leahy has a strike at the edge of the box and David Jones will be relieved to see that zip wide and over. 

62'

GOAL!

Will Patching (Dundalk) scores. A missile guided shot from 30 yards out, he smacks it without much backlift and it thunders into the bottom left corner. 

60'

Duffy puts the ball in the net but it's pulled for offside. That one looked tight. 

59'

Stanton, Patching and Duffy unpick the Red's defence and Duffy's cross across the six yard box is begging for a conversion but there is no white shirt there. 

52'

A Micheal Duffy corner is missed by everyone in the box, including David Jones in goals who tried to punch it clear. That was anyone's.

47'

Alessio Abibi to the rescue, twice.

Sonni Nattestad gets caught in possession and coughs the ball up to Jamie Breese one-on-one with the Dundalk number one, he makes a good initial block and then a good follow up save from the rebound. 

From the subsequent corner, Aaron Williams connects well with the crossed ball, heading it straight down and it almost has too much power behind it as it lifts up and over the bar. 

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Dundalk and Newtown has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Dundalk and Newtown. 2-0 to Dundalk off the back of two good moves. The score perhaps reflects the balance of play but Newtown will be ruing that early chance where Jameas Davies headed straight at Abibi, unmarked, from six yards out. 

44'

We've been notified that there will be one additional minute of time added to the first half. 

42'

Newtown have a free kick about 30 yards out. In the build up to that, it looked like two Newtown players tackled one another in the build up to that. They are at sixes and sevens at the moment. This will be a welcome breather - the free amounts to nothing. 

41'

McMillian pounces on a stray ball in the box and fires it over. he got under that too much. Newtown might want to settle things down before the break.

38'

GOAL!

David McMillan (Dundalk) scores. Duffy frees Leahy on the left, his cross dips into the danger zone and is met by David McMillian. His 12th European goal! Nice assist by Leahy, a fine cross. 

32'

GOAL!

Michael Duffy (Dundalk) scores. Well that goal was coming. Daniel Kelly was played though on the right and made great ground, he might have gone it himself from an obtuse angle, but he spied Micheal Duffy rushing in - his crossed ball was comfortably converted from close range to give Dundalk the lead. 

29'

Daniel Kelly is obstructed in the box, right in front of the referee again, another penalty shout. The man in the middle is happy to let play continue but Newtown are living dangerously with those kind of challenges. 

28'

Will Patching floats a ball into a crowded box, McMillian the intended recipient but it's cut out and cleared. Dundalk are really starting to get on top here. 

25'

Dundalk have the ball in the net but it's called offside, the flag was up before the ball was played though to Daniel Kelly.

21'

Will Patching sprays a beautiful cross field ball, from the Dundalk right back territory into Newtown right back territory and Micheal Duffy takes it down well and is bearing in on goal. His sidestep as he tries to cut in for a shot, takes it a little too far away from him and a red shirt bookts it to safety out of their box. Duffy was very close to being able to pull the trigger there - great pass from Patching to transition to attack. 

20'

A through ball is played into McEleney and the Derryman is bundled to the ground, right in front of the referee, but the man from San Marino is happy to let play go on. 

19'

Dundalk have a corner and as the ball is crossed in, the Dundalk players in the box are shouting for a penalty, it's waved away. 

18'

James Rowland crosses a ball in from the left wing. Sonni Nattestad is there but with the towering Aaron Williams closing in he elects to put it out for a corner kick. The resulting play is overhit and goes out for a goal kick. 

15'

Dundalk have had most of the possession so far bht haven't had a glut of efforts. The Lilywhites had two half chances through Patrick McEleney. Newtown have been chasing this game, but did have the stand out goal chance so far, that header from James Davies. 

6'

A real chance for Newtown: A long throw into the box is flicked into the box and James Davies is standing six yards out from goal, unmarked, it falls to him and he heads it straight at the 'keeper.

The centre backs and goalkeeper were asleep for that one. What a gift that was and he'll be kicking himself he didn't convert. 

2'

Newtown kick off but Dundalk nick it quickly and a though ball to Daniel Kelly looks very dangerous indeed but is cut out in the nick of time. 

 

As I typed that, Jurkovskis and Kelly one-two and try and play McMillian through but the pass is overhit, David Jones is able to collect. 

1'
