Cork City defeat Longford Town in dramatic fashion in the FAI Cup

There was plenty of drama at Turner's Cross last night as Cork City booked their place in the last 16 of the FAI Cup.

With the tie against Longford Town scoreless in the 121st minute of the game, substitute Ricardo Dinanga picked up Charlie Fleming's ball down the right, took on several Town defenders before shooting left footed into the Shed End with what was almost the last kick of the game.

City were reduced to 10 men in the second half of normal time when Graham Cummins, making his first start since re-signing for the club as a centre half, brought down Callum Warfield on the edge of the box when Warfield was in on goal.

 After the game Colm caught up with the goalscorer Dinanga.
