Live Updates for Flora Tallinn -v- Shamrock Rovers

90' + 5'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Flora Tallinn and Shamrock Rovers.

90' + 3'

Substitution

Erko Tougjas  - Henrik Purg  (Flora Tallinn).

90'

2 minutes have been added on

90'

Watts floats in the ball towards Joey O'Brien but the former Ireland international defender fouls the defender and it's a free out.

89'

Substitution

Rauno Alliku  - Rauno Sappinen  (Flora Tallinn).

87'

GOAL!

Martin Miller (Flora Tallinn) scores. Miller lashes one from outside the box that smashes into the top of the net and that is not what Rovers needed. Four goals away from home isn't a great return. Four clean sheets have been kept by Bradley's side in their last four games but tonight it has all fallen apart for them.

86'

GOAL!

Liam Scales (Shamrock Rovers) scores. Scales with a looping header towards Greene at the back post but the ball ends up going over the keeper and into the far corner. That could be a VITAL goal come the second leg.

79'

Mandriou hits the post!!!!! Some nice play from Greene to turn the defenders in the box to lay off to his teammate. The keeper didn't move.

76'

GOAL!

Rauno Sappinen (Flora Tallinn) scores.

70'

Joey O'Brien whips the ball in but Aaron Greene doesn't get a firm connection on his header.

69'

Corner Kick

Dylan Watts (Shamrock Rovers) takes a corner-kick and Joey O'Brien gets on it but his header heads left of the goal.

68'

Substitution

Daniel Mandroiu  - Richie Towell  (Shamrock Rovers).

64'

Corner Kick

Dylan Watts (Shamrock Rovers) takes a corner-kick after Graham Burke's cross was deflected behind.

57'

Burke forces a save from Matvei Igonen. Flora break and Sappinen looked to be offside but flag stays down - his shot doesn't.

56'

Corner Kick

Rauno Sappinen (Flora Tallinn) takes a corner-kick.

55'

Mistake from Pico Lopes with a long ball allows Rauno Sappinen in. He has six goals in Europe but Alan Mannus pulls off a great save.

54'

Substitution

Aaron Greene  - Rory Gaffney  (Shamrock Rovers).

53'

Corner Kick

Dylan Watts (Shamrock Rovers) takes a corner-kick after Rory Gaffney forced Henrik Purg to put it behind. 

52'

Aaron Greene about to come on.

50'

 

Liam Scales gets forward up the left but his shot is blocked.

48'

Rain hammering it down again.

46'

No changes at the break.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Flora Tallinn and Shamrock Rovers has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Flora Tallinn and Shamrock Rovers. The Rovers fans that have managed to make the trip out and have managed to get into the stadium are now in full voice as the ref blows for half time. That was a vital boost for the Tallaght club just on the brink of half time. If they can limit the counter attacking opportunities of the home side then they will be well capable of securing a draw or a victory from this first leg tie.

44'

GOAL!

Graham Burke (Shamrock Rovers) scores. Burke hits one into the top corner from the edge of the box after a number of chances for Rovers from a corner after Talinn cleared.

43'

The first proper chance for Rovers see's Burke pass the ball through to Watts who smashes it as hard as he can

39'

Ojamaa with another shot at the end of a counter attack but thankfully for the Irish side it goes over the bar. I think I know what Stephen Bradley's half time team talk may be centered around....

39'

Sean Hoare telling his midfielders "GET OFF YOUR HEELS" and do some defending.

37'

Yellow Card

Joey O'Brien (Shamrock Rovers) is booked.

33'

Rovers attempting to build attacks around the Tallinn box but the home side have bodies back each and every time and seem to be very happy to sit and invite pressure before attacking on the counter attack.

27'

GOAL!

Martin Miller (Flora Tallinn) scores. It is all going wrong for Rovers and the home side break quickly and the ball finds it's way to Miller who after some neat footwork in the box smashes it home.

27'

After some neat midfield passing, Graham Burke hits one from 25 yards that dips over the cross bar.

25'

Heavy rain beginning to fall here in the A. Le Coq Arena.

22'

Watts and Gaffney playing ping pong from one side of the box to the other but no shot yet for Rovers comes from it.

20'

Watts fires in a cross but no Rovers man manages to bounce as Tallinn hack it clear.

18'

Rovers still struggling to get anything going in midfield to get an attack further up the pitch going. They need to settle down quickly.

13'

GOAL!

Sergei Zenjov (Flora Tallinn) scores. Joey O'Brien gives the ball away sloppily allowing Vassiljev to play the ball in to Zenjov, splitting the centre halfs, for a simple finish beyond Mannus.

13'

Tallinn muster up a shot from 30 yards which goes miles over the bar.

11'

Scales attempting to get a break going by playing forward to Gaffney on the left wing but his cross is blocked by the first man.

10'

Referee not happy with Graham Burke showing too much white sock below his black sock and has to tape them up. So not just a League of Ireland issue!

9'

Rovers looking assured so far but have yet to build a promising attack to attempt to trouble the Flora backline.

4'

Hoare has to be alert to head the ball behind for a corner from a quickly hit ball in from the home side. Rovers manage to clear the impending danger.

4'

Small enough crowd - maybe 1,000. Flora Ultras - about 30 behind the goal Flora are defending in fine voice. They brough their drum anyway.

3'

3'

Bradley's side come into this game eight wins on the bounce and will be hoping they can secure another win here in Estonia.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Flora Tallinn and Shamrock Rovers has kicked off.

Two changes for the home side with the suspended Marten Kuusk out and Markus Poom dropped to the bench. Markus Seppik comes in to replace Kuusk and Markus Soomets comes in for Poom (he replaced Poom on 77 minutes in their game against Omonia last week).

0'

Two changes from Rovers' 2-0 away win in Albania with Sean Hoare in for the injured Lee Grace while Graham Burke comes in for Danny Mandroiu who is named on the bench.

0'

0'

Defender Marcus Poom, son of Mart Poom (current Estonian goalkeeping coach and former Derby county player), is on the bench. Rauno Alliku who played against Rovers a decade ago is also on the bench. Alan Mannus and Ronan Finn start today just as they did in July 2011 when the Hoops drew 0-0 here to progress 1-0 on aggregate in the Champions League qualifiers.

Kick-off is 7pm local time or 5pm back in Ireland so lots of time to read our match preview.

Hello from Estonia. Macdara Ferris (@macdarabueller) to take you through tonight's action in Tallinn. I attended yesterday's press conference in the A. Le Coq Arena where I heard from both Head Coaches and the Flora skipper.
