90' + 3' - Corner Kick -

Crunching challenge by Keeley sends it away, a Daly corner to a volley by Tom Smith that smacks off Harney's head and knocks him for a loop. Harney down, the game may well end here.

90' - Corner Kick -

Ball in from Daly is met with a clearance by Keeley but an iverhead kick from Mulcahy is up and an easy catch for Kelly. Four minutes added on at Stradbrook.

This game has come to life here at the end. Break started by Byrne ended with a great cross from Lynch that's claimed well by Connor. Other end and O'Halloran wins a Waterford corner

O'Connor with an audacious volley from 25 yards, but it goes well over. Might as well try it.

A good ball across from Watson spots Waters, but the cross heading towards Byrne is stopped by Connor, caught well. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
84' -

Close for Waterford as an O'Sullivan header is nearly deflected in off Keeley. A ropey moment for Cabo but it goes just wide with the keeper stranded. They hold on.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
82' -

A brave stop from Connor coming to collect a cross but he takes a hefty hit off Conor Keeley. Luckily he's okay to contimue, eitght minutes plus stoppage to go here,

Inside the last ten minutes and the quality hasn't improved, with Waters and Daly both wasting final balls. Looking like a 0-0 here.

Corner in from Waters meets Fitzpatrick, a strong header but just over. A worthwhile chance for the home side, as they begin to come into the game. An hour into it, mind.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
68' -

Game here has degenerated into a sort of scrappy mess. Lotefa and Browne booked for flared tempers after a foul on the Cabo midfielder, sloppy defending from the Blues leading to a Cabo chance that comes off the crossbar after McClean blocked Waters' effort. Pattern of the frst half continued here.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
61' -

Counter on counter here at Stradbrook - each one more uninspiring than the last. Heave touch from O'Halloran caps off a poor series. Still, averaging a chance every five minutes.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
55' -

Best chance for Cabo thus far when, off a throw in by Adam Harney, Daire Doyle controls the ball expertly on his chest and shoots a rasping volley that flies just wide of the left hand side of the goal from 12 yards. A brief moment of goodness in a dour game thus far.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
50' -

Nice exchange of play along the ground for Waterford - maybe the first in the whole game? Either way the final ball from O'Connor is still beyond O'Halloran, but signs of improvement definite.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
46' -

Decent cross in from O'Haalloran forces Kelly into a ropey moment, as pressure from O'Sullivan forces a drop. He recovers, though, but Waterford starting brighter.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
45' + 2' -

A cross from deep from Mulcahy just sails over the head of O'Sullivan. Ball takes a bobble before the cross, preventing a clean strike. Pitch at Stradbrook not in the best shape again.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
45' - Yellow Card - Tom Smith is booked for Waterford FC.
Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
45' - Corner Kick -

O'Halloran's corner is cleared and a fantastic break from Waters nearly has Cabo up. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
41' - Free Kick -

Much better delivery from Waters forces Connor to punch out in traffic, before a volley from Joe Doyle is cleared from two yards out by Browne. Another free conceded off a counter-attack, and one of these could well punish the Blues.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
39' - Free Kick -

Waters has a free after a foul by O'Sullivan, a poor ball is cleared and Lotefa scuffs a volley from 30 yards as it's sent back into the malestrom.

Case in point as a ball from deep from Shane O'Connor just evades the charging O'Sullivan and is collected by Mick Kelly. Balls in the final third not coming off.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
36' -

Significant periods of pressure here for the Blues but they just can't find the right pass when it matters. Sloppiness costing them as Cabo on the counter could punsh them.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
35' - Corner Kick -

Waters' corner is met by Joe Doyle and the ref blows the whistle. A brief celebration from the Cabo fans but it is cut short as the whistle was for a foul. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
32' - Free Kick -

Free kick for a foul on Derek Daly, but Comerford's ball doesn't clear the wall. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
30' -

Cabo make Connor work with a dink in from Daire Doyle and a volleyed cross from Watson, forcing the keeper to dive out and claim.  First real instance of goalkeepers under pressure all game.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
29' -

Fantastic knock down from O'Sullivan into the path of McDaid but his cross finds no one. High balls becoming the norm with Cabo in full on long ball mode and Waterford prevented from keeping it grounded.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
26' -

Comerford pounces on a loose ball and drives to tee up McDaid, but a scuffed shot dribbles wide from 20 yards. Not a lot of chances coming in this game.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
24' - Free Kick -

Foul by MCClean jumping on Waters' back, his free isn't fully cleared and comes back to him but he's stopped on the edge of the box fairly by Comerford. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
20' -

Break for Cabo after a sustained pweriod of Waterford pressure almost leads to a chance as a knock on from Jack Watson evades Patrick McClean and draws an awkward headed clearance from Connor. Best chance of an otherwise poor game thus far. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
15' -

On the same break Cabo create their first chance, but a hoofed volley over the bar from Daire Doyle on the edge of the box hardly registers as a shot. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
14' - Free Kick -

Poor free from Daly sees a Cabo counter the other way dealt with by McClean as Waters sprinted towards the away goal. 

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
13' -

Wateford on the front foot in the opening exchanges. Piling the pressure on the home side, and plenty of through balls just escaping. Cagey mood at Stradbrook.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
10' -

Shane O'Connor bowls over Lotefa in an aggressive challenge that he's lucky to escape unpunished from. Good aggression from the Blues early, taking it to the hosts.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
8' -

Incisive run by Mark O'Sullivan sees the first piece of goalmouth action. A strong challenge from Lotefa grounds him but no penalty. Opportunity for Waterford to grab the initiative.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC
7' -

Not a lot gone down in the opening five minutes here. Lotefa is back on as Cabo advance with a series of throw ins.

Cabinteely FC 0 - 0 Waterford FC

Two players down in the early exchanges: Cabo's Christian Lotefa and Dean O'Halloran of Waterford.

Waterford team news sees late fitness questions over Davy McDaid and Tom Smith answered with both taking their places in the starting XI, while the impressive Matthew Connor continues in goal. Victor Ekanem misses out for Cabo once again recovering from the groin injury sustained in the win over Cobh.
