Live Updates for Drogheda United -v- St. Patrick's Athletic

97'

Thats it from Patrick O' Connor at the Head in the Game Park, hope you enjoyed the live updates.

97'

Game over in Drogheda, an additional seven minutes were added due to the ' drone ' incident but it really only added to the  misery for the home side who were just waiting for the final whistle to blow.

They concede four goals for the second week in a row and were also fairly tootless in attack. It could be a long hard season for Kevin Doherty's side based on this performance and they will struggle to take any positives out of the match.

St Patricks Athletic really bounced back in style following their heavy defeat against Derry City and they will be delighted with their positive response tonight.

The game is back on after multiple conversations between all the officials, not sure there is anything in the rule book to cover this scenario !

This is highly unusual, the game is stopped by referee Paul McLoughlin because of the presence of a 'drone' hovering  over the pitch . Mark Scanlon from the FAI is in attendance and is called pitchside.

Substitution

Evan Weir  - Luke Heeney  (Drogheda United).

46'

Substitution

James Clarke  - George Poynton  (Drogheda United).

45'

A very dominant performance by St Patrick's Athletic, ever time  they to go on the attack they look likely to score and could easily be further ahead at half time.

In contrast Drogheda seem very shaky at the back and also devoid of ideas up front, particularly since Chris Lyions went off injured.

 

At this stage its looking like three points for the visitors , unless Kevin Doherty can work some magic at half time in the dressing room.

45'

26'

Substitution

Dean Williams  - Chris Lyons  (Drogheda United).
