FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Longford Town and UCD.

The curtain closes on Town's season here at the City Calling Stadium with a fair draw. UCD now must get ready for a big FAI Cup semi-final vs Dundalk on Friday.

That's me out and the report will come your way later on this evening!

90' + 2'

Jackson Ryan almost wins it at the death but his effort just goes wide. That should be that

90'

O'Reilly tests Sheridan with a long-range effort. Easy pickings for the youngster

90'

We're entering the final minutes here. Can Town grab a late winner?

87'

DILLON SCORES!!!!!!! Town get their deserved equaliser as Dillon nods home a McGlade corner. Great response from Town here since the break

85'

McGlade almost grabs a deserved goal but can't direct his header either side of Sheridan. He deserves a goal as Dillon has a strike on goal himself

McGlade almost gets in but can't get his shot away. Looks like a UCD win here

82'

76'

Substitution

Darragh Corcoran replaces Dan Tobin for UCD.

74'

Substitution

Neil Farrugia replaces Jason McClelland for UCD.

63'

CLOSE!!! LOngford have tehir tails up here. McGlade and Jackson Ryan go mightily close seconds after each other as UCD are living dangerously. Something must have been said in that dressing room at half-time for definite

61'

Substitution

Jackson Ryan replaces Jamie Doyle for Longford Town.

58'

GOAL!

Dean Dillon scores for Longford Town.

What a ball in from jamie Doyle as he finds Dillon who slots the ball past Gavin Sheridan in the UCD goal. Do Longford have a chance??

57'

Longford with some half-hearted shouts for a penalty kick but there's no real substance to it

51'

Corner Kick

UCD have won a corner kick. Gary O'Neill will take it.

Increasing noise levels from Section O in the far side of the ground. Chambers just sends a searching cross wide of Sheridan's goal

47'

McGlade has Longford's best opportunity of the game as his curling effort just goes wide of Gavin Sheridan's goal. Drogheda are now two up from a shout I heard in the press box, that is surely good night and god bless for De Town

46'

Second Half

The second half between Longford Town and UCD has started.

45' + 1'

Half Time

37'

Longford are just chasing shadows here. Stephen Kenny better watch out, this UCD side are the real deal!

35'

Dervin finds McGlade who fires home from close-range. However, the ex-Middlesbrough man was offside

33'

Dean Dillon is looking a really bright spark for Longford Town tonight. Only player showing quality on the ball for Fenn's side so far.

28'

GOAL!

Yousef Mahdy scores for UCD.

The Students extend their lead as Mahdy slots home from close range. McClelland lays the ball on nicely to the Galwegian who has all but ended this game as a contest....

26'

Good spell from Longford as Jamie Doyle causes problems up top. Sheridan eventually grabs the ball as the Students clear the ball

23'

While the result is going wrong tonight, Neale Fenn's side need to get back into this one. Who knows what might happen at St Colman's Park as the eternal optimist may say

18'

GOAL!

Daire O'Connor scores for UCD.

Oh no! Michael Kelly makes an elementary error as his long range effort creeps under the Town keeper. That may very well be that in terms of Longford's playoff hopes

15'

UCD's physicality is growing into this one. The Students look a step above De Town in the physical stakes thus far

11'

McGlade fires well over from range as he got on the end of a Dean Dillon touch. Enjoyable start to the game here

9'

CLOSE!!! UCD go close as Gary O'Neill's curling effort is well dealt with by Michael Kelly in teh Longford Town goal after some good interplay with Jason McClelland. Assured start from the Champions!

Longford on the attack. McGlade to take the corner which is well cleared by the UCD defence.

5'

Longford operating with a five at the back system. Elworthy and Chambers playing in the wing-back roles

2'

What a start we are having here! Jamie Doyle goes even closer as he takes an early strike on goal. Great play by Zambra who found teh ex-Shels hitman

1'

Nearly a calmitous mistake in the Longford defence as Yoyo Mahdy looks to intercept a Longford backpass. Close shave for De Town!

1'

The game between Longford Town and UCD has kicked off.

0'

And the teams are out! Are we in for a dramatic night here at the City Calling Stadium?

0'

Town make one change from last week's defeat at United as Shane Elworthy comes in for teh suspended Darren Meenan.

We all know that De Town need a minor miracle in Cobh to reach the Playoffs so a big shift is needed to get to the promised land in October.
