Cobh Ramblers defeat league leaders Shelbourne

Cobh Ramblers 2 Shelbourne 1

Cobh Ramblers have produced a fantastic display to record a thoroughly deserved win against Shelbourne at St Colman’s Park.

From Monday’s EA Sports Cup win over Limerick, Ramblers made two changes. Adam Mylod came back in goals in place of Paul Hunt, while Jaze Kabia was brought in for Cian Leonard.

Ramblers showed some great aggression and played with a high tempo. They very much started brightly, during what was generally very competitive early exchanges between the pair. Shels were finding it difficult to create chances early on with the press Cobh were applying.

Cobh had the first real chance of note after 20 minutes, when Stephen Kenny showed good footwork to get his cross away, before Ian Turner fired over inside the box.

Just past the half hour mark, a Cobh attacking move resulted in David Hurley getting a curling shot away. But Dean Delany in the Shels goal was able to make the save.

The visitors had a half opportunity when Ciaran Kilduff got an acrobatic effort away, but it went well off target in the end.

Just before the break, Stephen Christopher put a ball into the box for Ramblers. With Stephen Kenny unmarked inside the box, John Ross Wilson made a vital headed clearance.

The sides were level at the half time break and it was Ramblers that were most certainly the happier, after a very efficient first-half display.

Cobh kept up those good intensity levels into the second half and took the lead on the hour mark. Following some hesitancy on the ball from Delany in the Shels goal, Jaze Kabia dispossessed him and duly slotted the ball into the back of the net. That is Kabia’s 5th goal of the campaign in all competitions.

There was excitement abound at this great Cobh and things got even better when Denzil Fernandes put them two goals ahead.

After Kabia played him in, the lively winger saw his effort blocked on the line, before he reacted quickly to stab the ball home.

Shels got a goal back when Kilduff scored from the penalty spot.

Ramblers saw out what was a fantastic performance with a result which could jolt their season into life.

Next up for Henderson’s Ramblers is a trip to the Carlisle Grounds to face Bray Wanderers next Friday night.
