Despite dominating the possession stats for large parts of the game Shamrock Rovers failed to break Cork City down as goals from Mark O'Sullivan and Gearoid Morrissey gave the visitors the three points.

 

Whilst Rovers may have started the better side it was Cork that had the game's first major chance as Garry Buckley tries his luck from all of 25 yards. The shot in the end did not trouble Murphy as the ball flew over the net minders cross bar.

 

While it was the home team with more of the possession it was the team from the south of the country that was creating the better of the chances as Mark O'Sullivan headed just over from a Billy Dennehy cross.

 

With both sides struggling to create anything in the line of clear cut chances Marty Waters went closest for the home side when he cut inside his man before attempting to bend his effort into the far corner of the Cork City goal. However McNulty was up to the challenge as he got down well to push away the effort. Dan Murray then managed to get back in time to clear the impending danger as Kilduff looked set to tap the ball into an empty net.

 

It wasn't long after the break when Cork took the lead, in fact it took less than three minutes. Brian Lenihane went on a dazzling run down the right hand side of the pitch, from here he pulled the ball back across the six yard box to allow the onrushing Mark O'Sullivan to smash past Murphy from just six yards out.

 

With less than ten minutes to go things were not looking positive from The Hoops point of view. Marty Waters attempted to change this as he struck his free kick beautifully. The end result was that the ball hit the post before bouncing along the goal line and swerving off to safety.

 

Rovers now pushed forward finally looking like a team that might achieve a result of some proportion. Ryan Brennan was the latest man to go close as he managed a decent headed effort, that had it not been for a deflection from a Cork defender, may well have found its way into the back of the net.

 

Deep into injury time with the home side desperately pushing forward in search of a goal Gearoid Morrissey received a pass from Mark O'Sullivan. The midfielder burst onto the pass as he charged into the box before simply sliding the ball past Murphy to seal the three points and  yield wild scenes of celebration from the Cork players and travelling supporters.
