There was a very funny moment on RTE's Soccer Republic last night.

RTE commentator Stephen Alkin was interviewing St Patrick's Athletic boss Liam Buckley after his side's 2-1 FAI Cup second round victory over Dublin rivals Shamrock Rovers.

Alkin asked Buckley why Keith Fahey was substituted after half an hour, it wouldn't be an unreasonable question but for the fact that Fahey plays for Rovers and not the Saints.

Fahey moved to the Hoops from Pats at the end of last season.

Liam Buckley stared at Alkin before revealing his error which sparked a lot of laughter.
