90' + 3'

We are into our third minute of added time, and it is appearing less and likely that Shels can save this one. In truth, this has been a really poor night for Ian Morris' side...

ASSIST!

Paul Doyle (UCD) provides the assist.

80'

GOAL!

Harvey O'Brien (UCD) scores.

UCD MAKE IT TWO!

Harvey O'Brien heads home with a bullet header past Brendan Clarke. The Mayo man had a free run for that and made no mistake. That was a great header but questions may need to be asked by the Shels defenders there.. 2-0 UCD!

80'

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

80'

Free Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a free-kick.

79'

UCD's Sean Brennan is being attended to, but he should be OK to play on...

77'

Yellow Card

Brian McManus (Shelbourne) is booked.

75'

Corner Kick

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

Ally Gilchrist heads over... Shels are piling on the pressure now.

75'

Free Kick

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

O'Connor's free-kick breaks down and falls to Michael Barker at the edge of the box, but he can only shoot wide, and the ball goes out for a corner...

73'

CLOSE FOR UCD! 

Jack Keaney nips in and lays the ball off to Paul Doyle, but Doyle can only shoot wide from range. He had Brendan Clarke scrambling there...

70'

Shelbourne claim for a penalty but referee David Dunne waves away the protests after Michael O'Connor went down. The referee got that one right it appears off the stream.

69'

Some great link up play between Paul Doyle and Mark Dignam sees Dignam have his shot blcoked and go out for a corner. The Students go close again from the corner as Evan Weir's ball back into the box finds Colm Whelan but he can't head home into the back of the net...

66'

Corner Kick

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

65'

The Shelbourne support to my right have left referee David Dunne in no doubt about how they feel about an offside call made against Michael O'Connor. I'm not sure about that call either...

62'

Substitution

Ryan Brennan  - Shane Farrell  (Shelbourne).

62'

Substitution

Eric Molloy  - George Poynton  (Shelbourne).

62'

Close for UCD as Mark Dignam goes close with a header but Brendan Clarke claims well after Paul Doyle's cross found Dignam... Still 1-0 UCD.

59'

Some sarcastic chants coming from the UCD support claiming that they are going to win the cup. Maybe they're serious. I don't know...

56'

PENALTY SCORED!

Colm Whelan (UCD) scores from the penalty spot.

UCD TAKE THE LEAD! 

Colm Whelan wins and scores the spot-kick to give UCD the lead. Whelan was felled by Georgie Poynton on the edge of the penalty area, and referee David Dunne was quick to award UCD the penalty. Clarke went the same way as Whelan's penalty, but he could not keep it out! 1-0 UCD!

55'

PENALTY UCD! 

54'

This has been a quiet enough start to the second-half, neither side are looking too dangerous just yet... 

52'

Free Kick

Evan Weir (UCD) takes a free-kick.

52'

Colm Whelan hesitates before trying to find Liam Kerrigan with a great ball, and Shels clear. But the UCD attack is not over yet...

50'

Corner Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

49'

Yellow Card

Colm Whelan (UCD) is booked.

47'

Free Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a free-kick.

Colm Whelan gets his head on Paul Doyle's set-piece but he can only head over the bar. Still 0-0 at the Bowl...

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between UCD and Shelbourne has started.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between UCD and Shelbourne.

Scoreless at the break here at the UCD Bowl. Will we see this completed in the 90 minutes? Let's hope. I'll be back in 15 minutes time...

45'

Shane Farrell shoots from distance but Lorcan Healy claims well.. We will have two minutes of added time to be played...

41'

Corner Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

CLOSE FOR SHELS! 

Kouogun gets his head on another set-piece, but this time he heads over. He should have made a lot more of that....

40'

Sean Brennan shoots from distance for UCD but Brendan Clarke claims with ease and the Reds go on the attack again...

38'

Free Kick

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

Maxi Kouogun gets his head on O'Connor's ball into the box, but his effort just goes wide of the post. Still 0-0. 

37'

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

34'

Ally Gilchrist has gone down for Shelbourne and needs treatment but he should be OK to continue... 

32'

Corner Kick

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

30'

Farrell goes close again! 

Michael O'Connor lifts the ball over the UCD defence and bears down on goal before Lorcan Healy, but he can only drag his effort wideas UCD survive yet another defensive scare. A goal is coming here at the Bowl...

27'

A quick water break and we're almost back in action...

26'

Another near-miss for Shelbourne as JJ Lunney's pass to Brendan Clarke is cut out by Mark Dignam who then finds Colm Whelan, but Whelan runs out of space before Shels clear. Lunney has had a slow start tonight...

24'

Free Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

22'

This a full-bloooded cup game so far. Evan Weir is taking no prisoners in his defensive battle with Shane Farrell on the UCD left-hand side. An enjoyable game so far...

21'

Free Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a free-kick.

18'

Good UCD play almost sees them rip open Shels' defence, but Ally Gilchrist is in the right place at the right time to deny Paul Doyle. Evan Weir found Mark Dignam down the wing before he crossed to Colm Whelan. Whelan ran out of space before passing to Doyle but he was denied by Gilchrist...

15'

Yellow Card

Dayle Rooney (Shelbourne) is booked.

14'

Corner Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

14'

GREAT CHANCE! 

Shelbourne go close now through Shane Farrell but his low shot on goal is batted away by Lorcan Healy out for a corner. Farrell was found by Kevin O'Connor with a low cross before Healy saved...

11'

Corner Kick

Mark Dignam (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

10'

Great chance for UCD! 

Michael Barker's poor defensive header causes a number of problems for Brendan Clarke, and Colm Whelan almost nips in. Whelan picked up the pall under pressure from Clarke before then shooting at the Shels keeper, but he was denied by Clarke. He should have made more of that.

9'

Some more good Shelbourne play from Michael Barker and Shane Farrell almost opens up the Students, but Farrell was offside by the time the ball fell to his feet... Good atmosphere building here.

7'

A couple of good early openings for Shelbourne with Shane Farrell at the heart of some good play. Still 0-0 and no major chances here just yet...

5'

Corner Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a corner-kick.

4'

First chance of the game falls to UCD as Liam Kerrigan flashes wide from range after picking up on a loose Michael Barker pass...

3'

Shelbourne are lining up as expected in a 4-2-3-1, while UCD look to be playing with a flat back four, Jack Keaney is playing in his natural defensive midfield position... Little to report on so far.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between UCD and Shelbourne has kicked off.

0'

Shelbourne have won the toss and have elected to change ends. I presume that is because of the dipping sun at the Clonskeagh end of the ground...

0'

And the teams are out on the pitch... KO is just moments away! 

0'

Bohemians boss Keith Long is in attendance at the UCD Bowl this evening... 

0'

Former Bohemians under-19 star Gavin Molloy is also on the bench for Shelbourne this evening. Shels academy graduates Alex Nolan and Kyle O'Connor are also on the bench for the Reds...

0'

Teams in here at the UCD Bowl, and UCD make one swap from last week's 2-1 loss away to TReaty United as Evan Weir comes in for Dara Keane. Shels make three changes from last week's 3-1 win over Athlone, and Eric Molloy makes the bench after joining from Waterford this week...

0'

For those unaware, there will be 200 supporters at the UCD Bowl tonight, with 75 of those coming from the Reds. Should be a decent atmosphere here this evening...

0'

Remarkably, this will be the first time UCD and Shelbourne will face one another in the FAI Cup.

Shelbourne have not lost an away game since last season’s humbling 4-1 exit at the hands of Athlone Town in the FAI Cup. During that time, however, they have only racked up one clean sheet on their travels.

UCD have only lost once at home to Shelbourne in their last seven competitive versus the Reds at the UCD Bowl. That defeat came in 2017 as the Owen Heary managed side ran out 2-1 winners.

0'

Good evening folks and welcome to the UCD Bowl as UCD host Shelbourne in the FAI Cup. 

I'm Andrew Dempsey and I will be taking you all through tonight's action... 

Team news to come shortly!
