90' + 2'

We are into dying embers of this game. Drogheda look home and hosed and can travel back home with all three points.

Lennon Gill  - Donal Higgins  (UCD).

70'

Drogheda play on the break but Poynton skies it. Poynton is beside himself

60'
PENALTY! Referee points to the spot. It appeared that Sean Brennan handled the ball in his own box

54'

Yellow Card

Dayle Rooney (Drogheda United) is booked.

Rooney takes a free kick from 30 yards out but hits the bar. Almost identical to the effort from Duffy in the first half. First real chance of the half. Drogheda fidning their feet a bit here.

49'

A special mention to the fantastic contingent of travelling Drogheda fans who have made their voices heard all night.

Mosnter shot from Ryan Brennan from way way out but Healy tips the ball aside. What a strike

45'

UCD back out onto the pitch. Second half fast approaching.

29'

Free Kick

Dylan Duffy (UCD) takes a free-kick.

Bad delivery from Kerrigan and Drogs take possesion of the ball.

24'

UCD consitently placing sloppy passes when attemping to play it out from the back. They could be playing themselves into dangerous areas in this match

3'

Pentaly shout here! Ronney goes down in the box but the referee waives it off. Few rickety moments here for The Students.

2'

Both sides are just feeling each other out. One aspect of this match that has already caught my eye is the battle down the left-hand side between Andrew Quinn and Dylan Duffy. Duffy is looking to play as a left wing-back.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between UCD and Drogheda United has kicked off.

0'

Five minutes till kick-off here at The Bowl.

0'

A stunning night here on the south side of the capital. Perfect conditions for this crunch game between the sides that were favoured by the Extratime staff to be relgeated from the Premier Division.

0'

Kevin Docherty and his back room staff have made one change to the team that drew at home to Bohemians last Friday with Evan Weir coming in for Keith Cowan.

0'

Andy Myler has made one change to the side that recorded an impressive 2-2 draw away at the Showgrounds last Saturday, with Sean Brennan coming into the side at the expense of Jack Keaney. It appears that Keaney has broken a bone as his left hand. A big blow to the UCD side as he has been a stalwart in the centre of the park all season for The Students.

0'
The last time these two sides faced off was back in March at Head in the Game Park. 
The match ended in an emphatic 4-2 victory for Drogheda. The star of that game was striker Chris Lyons, who bagged a brace that night and starts tonight. Drogheda fans will hope he can replicate that same magic once again.
