MUNSTER SENIOR CUP 1ST RND

Cobh Wanderers 0-2 Midleton

Goalscorers: Ray Lally ,Kevin Murray

Excellent away result today for the magpies who keep their good run of form going this year, in truth this was extremely comfortable game for Midleton until the 70th min when the inevitable pressure came on from the home side, Midleton dominated the 1st 45min and were two goals to the good, ray Lally opened his account this year for the magpies through a great turn and strike from the edge of the box to wrong foot the Wanderers keeper.
Midleton 2nd came from a wonder delivery from a free kick from John Keane o pick out the in rushing Kevin Murray to head into the top corner, and much deserved 2nd.
Kelvin Kruschel should have given Midleton a 3 goal lead just before the break but old stalwart Mick Devine somehow got finger tips to keep out a amazed Kruschel.

2nd half began in similar fashion again Midleton could have grabbed a 3rd only for Devine to pull out another top save to Deny new signing Tijani Aibor from edge of the box. The game became a much more even affair for 15 min with a lot of ball in the middle of the park played but no chances created, but Cobh started to apply pressure that was expected but Midleton defended resolutely with key blocks from edge of the box from the ever solid Gary Collins and Kevin Murray, Midleton stopper Matt Gledhill finally began to see action with Chubbs rasping a freekick off the bar and coming close from a corner.
But a lot was in front of the Midleton back four and they dealt brilliantly for 20min.
Midleton saw out the game for a great clean sheet and had really good performances from midfield three of Ian Maher James Leahy and Tijani.
Definitely a word of mention must go to young Cillian O'Brien who again started today this time at right fullback and once again had a really solid game, well done fella keep it up.

Well done lads great result, next up for Midleton is league action on Thursday night at home to Avondale at 7.30
