St Patrick's Athletic - Limerick

A cracking equaliser with literally the last kick of the game deep in stoppage time from captain Shane Duggan salvaged a point for Limerick in their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash with St Patrick's Athletic at Richmond Park.

But the home side were left none too pleased with referee Derek Tomney at the final whistle which came straight from the restart.

Despite four minutes having been held up on the board, the game was into the fifth minute of added time when substitute Barry Cotter and Rodrigo Tosi set up Duggan who took a touch before blasting a superbly-struck left foot shot to the net from 14 yards to deprive Saints of a big win.

Seventh-placed Limerick, who remain two points ahead of St Pat's, will be the happier with the draw, not least in the dramatic manner in which it came about, though both sides remain in relegation trouble.

Limerick began the better with St Pat's having Polish keeper Lukasz Skowron to thank for a double save six minutes in.

Killian Brennan gave the ball away in midfield to allow Lee J Lynch surge forward to bring a diving save from Skowron.

The keeper then did even better to force Chiedoze Ogbene's follow-up out for a corner with his legs.

The lively Ogbene got in down the left again on 11 minutes to work Skowron once more with an angled drive.

St Patrick's came right into the game as the half wore on with Owen Garvan, Paul O'Conor and Christy Fagan, twice, having chances.

In a frantic end to the half, the sides swapped goals with Limerick taking the lead on 44 minutes.

Ogbene got possession to thump a shot from distance that came down off the underside of Skowron's crossbar and spun out with assistant referee Wayne McDonnell flagging for the goal before Tosi bundled the rebound home.

But Saints levelled a minute into added time. Fagan and Conan Byrne were involved with the latter's cross tapped home from close range by O'Conor.

St Pat's steadily got on top into the second half with Brennan and Garvan having efforts off target before they deservedly took the lead on 71 minutes.

Kelly found Byrne who cleverly cut by a defender to drill an angled shot past Brendan Clarke with Cotter merely helping the ball over the line.

Limerick chased the game late on. Tosi shot wide when he might have done better on 87 minutes while a Shane Tracy free kick was straight at Skowron before added time brought the drama.
