Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 2 St. Patrick's Ath
90' + 3' - Full Time -

So, the referee has blown it up with a minute to go due to the floodlight failure. Pat's have done really well tonight and will be feeling very confident going into the second leg with two away goals scored. That's all from me this evening folks. Good night!

Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 2 St. Patrick's Ath
90' + 2' -

With just a minute to go, the floodlights have failed in the LFF Stadium!

Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 2 St. Patrick's Ath
90' + 1' -

Pat's have been good value for this scoreline tonight. They've kept plugging away despite twice going a goal behind and have taken their chances well.

Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 2 St. Patrick's Ath
89' -

That was a fantastic strike from O'Brien. He took it with the outside of his foot and it flew past Vitkauskas. 

Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 2 St. Patrick's Ath
88' - Substitution - Philip Hughes replaces Christy Fagan for St. Patrick's Ath.
Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 2 St. Patrick's Ath

80' -

Luka Peric's long range effort is saved by Brendan Clarke.

Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
71' -

A sumptuous ball to the back post found the head of Andro Svrljuga. He headed back across Clarke who made a fantastic diving save but could only tip it out to Kamil Bilinski who tapped home from close range.

Zalgiris Vilnius 2 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
70' - Goal - Kamil Bilinski scores for Zalgiris Vilnius.
Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
68' -

Pat's are starting to retain possession a bit better now and have had two shots in quick succession from Ian Bermingham and Chris Forrester.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
64' -

Andro Svrljuga heads just wide for Zalgiris.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
62' - Substitution - Paulius Janusauskas replaces Arturas Zulpa for Zalgiris Vilnius.
Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
60' - Substitution -

Andrius Velicka replaces Ramunas Radavicius for Zalgiris Vilnius.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
60' -

Pat's go close again through Bolger. He found himself in space 25 yards from goal and hit a powerful shot towards the corner of the net but Vitkauskas saved well.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
59' -

In case anyone was wondering, the assist came from Greg Bolger.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
56' -

A long ball over the Zaligris defence finds Conan Byrne on the right wing. Byrne ran onto it and curled it around the on-rushing Vitkauskas with his first touch. That's a vital away goal for the Inchicore side.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 1 St. Patrick's Ath
55' - Goal - Conan Byrne scores for St. Patrick's Ath.
Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
53' -

Conan Byrne plays in a good cross to the back post but it's just out of the reach of the in-rushing Chris Forrester.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
49' -

Zalgiris have started the second half as they finished the first- putting pressure on the League of Ireland side. Some last ditch defending from Pat's allows them to clear their lines.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
46' - Second Half -

The game is back underway in Vilinus. During the break we had the Lithuanian lotto draw on. So, if you're the lucky winner, let us know by tweeting Extratime.ie at @ExtratimeNews

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
45' + 1' - Half Time -

Half-time in Lithuania and the hosts still lead by that solitary goal. St Pat's have done okay so far but Zalgiris deserve their lead.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
43' -

Brennan is back up and running and looks okay to continue.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
42' -

Killian Brennan is down injured and receiving treatment at the moment.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
39' -

A penalty shout for Pat's after Conor Kenna looked to be pushed in the back is waved away by the referee.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
38' -

Brendan Clarke does well to smother a Kamil Bilinksi through ball that would surely have led to Zalgiris doubling their advantage.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
35' -

Conan Byrne misses a golden chance for St Pat's! A misplaced pass from Chris Forrester was completely left by the Zalgiris defence, allowing it to run to Byrne at the back post but he hit his shot straight at Vitkauskas.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
31' -

Pat's are being put under a lot of pressure since the goal. With 15 minutes to go until half-time they need to see this half out and recuperate in the dressing room at the break.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
30' - Yellow Card - Ian Bermingham is booked for St. Patrick's Ath.
Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
26' -

It was a thunderbolt of a finish, though.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
25' -

Pat's won't be happy with conceding that goal. The defence backed off Kamolov in their own box, practically inviting him to shoot.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
23' -

Kamolov picked up the ball on the edge of the box after it was pulled back to him. He was allowed too much time to compose himself before smashing past Brendan Clarke.

Zalgiris Vilnius 1 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
22' - Goal - Pavel Kamolov scores for Zalgiris Vilnius.
Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
20' -

Christy Fagan's effort from 25 yards out is easily dealt with by Armantas Vitkauskas in the Zalgiris goal.

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
17' -

Zalgiris win a corner after they hit the wall with a free-kick. The corner come to nothing, however.

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
16' -

Pat's have started the game well and look comfortable on the ball but Zalgiris look quick on the break.

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
15' - Yellow Card -

John Russell is booked for Pat's. Looked like it was for dissent.

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
13' - Yellow Card - Arturas Zulpa is booked for Zalgiris Vilnius.
Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
11' -

St Pat's win a free-kick on the edge of the box but Killian Brennan blazes over.

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
8' -

Christy Fagan sees his shot blocked beofre goal. That's the best chance of the game so far.

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
1' - Kick-off - The game between Zalgiris Vilnius and St. Patrick's Ath has kicked off.

I'm no expert on Lituanian football so I won't comment on the Zalgiris team. Although I do know that they have conceded only six goals in 17 matches. And they play in green and white. 

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
0' -

So Pat's manager Liam Buckley has included new loanee Philly Hughes in the squad for this evening's game, while Anto Flood doesn't even make the bench. Could this be a sign of moves to come during the transfer window?

Zalgiris Vilnius 0 - 0 St. Patrick's Ath
