--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FULL TIME: PORTADOWN 1 - 1 LINFIELD
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


90 + 3' It's all over at Shamrock Park and Linfield bring to a close the 2014/15 season with a draw against Portadown. Peter Thompson was so close to scoring on his last Linfield game but it just wasn't to be in the end and I doubt that will overshadow his glittering medal-laden career in the famous Linfield Royal Blue.

90' We're heading into time added on as both teams look content on seeing out the 1-1 draw.

84' sub.gif Andrew Waterworth on for Chris Hegarty.

84' sub.gif Chris Ferguson on for Darren Murray.

76' Rodney Brown heads narrowly wide after a good cross from Thompson on the right.

74' Sean Ward tries an audacious effort from all of 40 yards but Miskelly wasn't going to be caught out and saved easily.

71' sub.gif Rodney Brown on for Kirk Millar.

61' sub.gif Padraig Judge on for Shea Conaty.

59' Another chance for Thompson. The ball wasn't properly cleared by the Ports' defence and as the ball fell to Pistol Pete 6 yards from goal he looked destined to score only to place his header over the crossbar.

53' Aaron Burns' flick well held by Miskelly after he was set free by Kirk Millar.

51' Aaron Burns is next to test Miskelly with a rasping long range effort with his left foot but the ball was tipped wide by the Portadown keeper.

48' Peter Thompson oh so close to scoring on his final appearance, after directing his header onto the post.

46' We're back underway at Shamrock Park.

HALF TIME: PORTADOWN 1 - 1 LINFIELD
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


45 + 2' It's half time at Shamrock Park and despite an early flurry of goals, it's only 1-1 at the break. Pretty even stuff from either side as the game is played in a real end-of-season fashion.

44' Marcio Soares is denied by the post after beating Hegarty for pace and unleashing a shot from just inside the area.

42' Ross Clarke denied by a great save from Miskelly after he was free by Sammy Morrow.

40' Kirk Millar fired the ball across the face of goal but Peter Thompson couldn't adjust his body enough to get the shot away.

35' Sammy Morrow fires a volley narrowly wide from the edge of the box after the ball fell kindly for the substitute.

24' sub.gif Linfield forced into an early substitution with Michael Carvill coming off injured for Sammy Morrow.

That goal is Aaron Burns' 20th of the season from midfield.

9' GOALLFC.png Linfield hit back almost immediately - Aaron Burns volleys home the loose ball after Ross Clarke's cross from the right.

8' goalthem.png Portadown take the lead after Linfield failed to clear their lines. The ball dropped to Darren Murray who volleyed the ball under the body of Gareth Deane.

6' Ross Clarke cut in from the right after being released by Jimmy Callacher but his low shot was well held by Miskelly.

1' We're underway at Shamrock Park.

It's a much changed Linfield side going into today's final game. Linfield manager Warren Feeney gives Gareth Deane a start in goals fresh off the back of his new contract during the week. Peter Thompson leads the Linfield attack in his final game in the famous Royal Blue of his boyhood heroes. Wouldn't it be a fitting send off for "Pistol Pete" to get his name on the scoresheet this afternoon.
