thumbnail Hello,

Raffaele Cretaro shone in both games this week to help the Bit o' Red extend their winning streak, while Derry forward Michael Rafter was also on target in his two matches

Sligo Rovers made it six wins from six games to continue their perfect start to the Airtricity Premier Division. The Bit o' Red are looking much improved from last season, with all their players combining to keep them five points clear at the top of the table.

The holders travelled to Dublin to take on both Bohemians and UCD, scoring six goals with no reply from either side. Evan McMillan helped Sligo keep clean sheets in both games, putting in a good shift against the Students, his former club. Midfielder David Cawley continued to impress, and bagged a goal against UCD, while Raffaele Cretaro scored and provided an assist in the 3-0 win over Bohemians.

Up front, Anthony Elding was on target once again, but it was Aaron Greene who took all the plaudits this week with three goals in two games for Ian Baraclough's side. The Students remain rooted to the bottom of the table, but picked up a point against Bray Wanderers thanks to two goals from David McMillan.

Cork City and Shamrock Rovers played out a battle of nerves on Friday, with both sides defending well in the 1-1 draw. Johnny Dunleavy helped keep the match tight with some great tackles, while Hoops defender Derek Foran was solid once more.

Dundalk and Drogheda United played out a thrilling Louth derby on Thursday night to kick off the weekend's action, as the Lilywhites came from behind to snatch a 2-2 draw. John Dillon's late penalty gave the hosts a share of the points, while Ryan Brennan was also on target.
