Recap

Cork City progressed to the semi-finals of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup tonight after a comfortable 7-0 victory over Longford Town.

John Caulfield made six changes to the side that lost to Sligo Rovers last Friday night. Peter Cherrie started in goal, while Steven Beattie, Alan Bennett, Kieran Sadlier, Ronan Coughlan and Jimmy Keohane all came back into the starting eleven.

City looked lively from the kick-off, with Karl Sheppard coming close with a shot from close range in the opening fifteen minutes. Gearóid Morrissey broke the dead-lock on the twenty-minute mark. The ball was whipped in from a corner-kick and it fell to Morrissey and he got just enough on the ball to see it nestle into the bottom corner. Sadlier made it two nil three minutes later. Sheppard created space for a cross from the right and Sadlier rose high to powerfully head the ball past a helpless Michael Kelly.

Ronan Coughlan made it three ten minutes into the second half, first seeing his shot blocked but quickly following up the rebound to tap the ball into an empty net. Sadlier grabbed a brace in the sixty-ninth. Substitute Shane Daly Bütz crossed from the right and Sadlier beat the full-back to get on the end of it. The goalscorer turned provider for Josh O’Hanlon, who also came off the bench to make his mark and fire home Sadlier’s cross from close range.

A brace wasn’t enough for Sadlier, as he scored his first hat-trick for Cork City after a thunderbolt from thirty-yards. Barry McNamee scored a minute later with a tap-in from O’Hanlon’s low cross.

The draw for the semi-finals takes place on Monday during Soccer Republic, live on RTÉ2 from 7pm.
