Longford Town 0 - St Patrick's Athletic 0

It's back to Richmond Park on Tuesday night after a very keenly contested third round tie failed to yield a goal at a packed Flancare Park.

In a tight first-half it was the visitors who came cloest to scoring three minutes before the break when central defender Stephen McGuinness got forward to volley against the underside of the Longford crossbar from Robbie McGuinness's cross.

Town best chance then caem in time added on when St. Pat's goalkeeper Shay Kelly got down well to make a good stop from Eric Smith.

Niall Byrne might have won it for Town 20 minutes from time but balzed over with the goal gaping after Kelly failed to hold a long ball into his area from Alan Murphy long ball.
