Live Updates for UCD -v- Longford Town

95'

That's it from Patrick O' Connor at the Belfield Bowl, hope you enjoyed the live updates.

95'

Game over ,  UCD progress into the quarter finals while  Longford exit and are left to concentrate on their very unlikley survival in the Premier Division.

 

All the goals and all the action was crammed into the second half here, Longford can consider themselves a little unlikley  as they played extremely well and showed their intent with  their equaliser straight after UCD's opening goal.  The students pace and passing ability was too much for the visitors however and apart from Dean Williams goal they never really tested Lorcan Healy .

SECOND HALF

The second half between UCD and Longford Town has started.

45'

A very strong first 25 mins from Longford during a period when UCD never came out of the blocks, however in the last 20 minutes UCD grew into match and started to take control.

The visitors han numerous free kicks and corner kicks but failed to capitalizse on these, they may not get as many chances in the second half if UCD continue as they left off before the break.

Still all to play for here and it looks like there  may not be too many goals in this game.

About 10 minutes to kick off at the Bowl, there is a strong contingent of fans from Longford Town here tonight who I'm sure will be very vocal in supporting their local team.

0'

In team news, UCD are unchanged from the side who won 2-0 at Cobh Ramblers in their last outing.

Longford Town have a number of changes from their 4-1 loss to Waterford last week, Mick Kelly starts in goals while Aaron Robinson, Joe Manley and Conor Davis also come into the starting eleven.

0'

The home side are on the crest of a wave recently , they are well positioned to be in one of the play off slots come the end of the season and and their star striker Colm Whelan has just been called into the Irish U-21 International squad for the upcoming internationals against Bosnia and Luxembourg.

Beautiful evening in South Dublin, this is Longford's only hope of salvaging something from the season so it should make for a rousing Cup match between these two sides.
