Portlaoise AFC – Tullamore Town Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 14:45

Walsh Island had their chances also and only for some fine defending from Jack Murtagh and Jack Phelan they could have troubled Ethan Kelly in goals, who dealt expertly with the ball that did come his way. Alex Moore was providing plenty of cover for the defence from his midfield role and he was also in the thick of the Portlaoise attacks.

Callum Leonard again threatened for Portlaoise but was just pipped by the Emo keeper, while at the other end Aidan Keane pulled off a fine low save to deny Emo a second. John Ging was causing trouble for the Emo defence as Portlaoise clawed their way back into the game, and with eight minutes to the break they got their reward, when a trade mark Andrew Goggin pass picked out Callum Leonard, who rifled home the equaliser.

Alex and Jamie continued to interact well and a few chances resulted. Ben McDonald was coming more and more into the game putting more balls forward but fighting well in the tackles too. After Conor Brown pulled off a good interception on a Tullamore cross box ball, Utd had the better chances with a number of corners won in quick succession.

Portlaoise Utds attacking game was early out of the blocks when good link up play between Ben McDonald, Jamie Toman and Alex Bennett forced an early corner which resulted in a free out due to a high foot on the keeper. A short kick out from Utd Keeper Conor Brown to his defender was closed down straight away by the Tullamore attacker who passed to his team mate resulting in a strike at goal. Tullamore, who were probably the tallest side that Utd have faced this season, had settled straight away too though and were themselves pressing the Utd players at every opportunity. The corner was defended well by the ever calm Evan Hewitt who played the ball out to safety. Conor pulled off a super dive down low to his left and tipped the ball around the post for a corner.

Both teams did well and the score probably just reflects to the balance of chances that Portlaoise Utd had over Tullamore Town, and this results puts them back on the top of the table. The final whistle brought a new year win for Utd and this was an ideal game to get them back on track straight away playing against a good footballing side that were for the most part physically bigger.

Substitute Dan Ubesie then had a fine effort from distance on 42minutes go over the bar after Utd zipped the ball around with some lovely snappy passing. Ben Doyle had been making several runs during the game and finding himself in good positions with his first real chance seeing his weaker left foot snatch at the ball going just wide.

With a display full of endeavour and no little skill, Peacham displayed an uncanny ability, rare enough at this young age, of choosing the right option more often than not and he was rightfully chosen by the Walsh Island management as the Portlaoise player of the game, although all of the 13 players on show can be extremely happy with their performances.

This allowed the away team to get a foothold in the game again and on the back of this Tullamore won a series of free kicks in the Portlaoise half. Portlaoise were breaking at will, with options left and right but unfortunately the final passes were either off the mark or too slow in being delivered. Tullamore heads dropped a little and they were probably lucky not to concede more early in the half.
