90' + 3' - Full Time - Linfield's free comes to nothing, and the resulting counter attack comes to nothing. Raymond Crangle blows his whistle and the game ends in a draw - Derry definitely the happier of the two sides as David McDaid's late goal pegs back Peter Thompson's first half strike
Linfield 1 - 1 Derry City
90' + 2' - Three minutes of injury time here, one minute left, Linfield launching one last free forward.....
