thumbnail Hello,

Strong performances from St Patrick's Athletic duo Kenny Browne and Killian Brennan saw the Bit o' Red's winning streak come to an end, while Ryan McBride helped Derry win again

Sligo Rovers and Shamrock Rovers' undefeated runs came to an end in the Airtricity Premier Division this weekend as they were beaten by St Patrick's Athletic and Derry City respectively.

The Saints saw Kenny Browne and Killian Brennan put in good performances to defeat the league leaders 2-0, with the latter scoring a cheeky penalty goal to help his side move to within six points of top spot. Derry City sit just two points behind Sligo thanks to a 2-1 victory over Shamrock Rovers. Ryan McBride scored the second goal for the Candystripes, heading in from a free-kick, but was also solid at the back.

Drogheda United defeated UCD 3-2 in an entertaining encounter at Hunky Dorys Park with striker Gary O'Neill bagging two goals. Cork City hosted Shelbourne at Turners Cross, but let a 1-0 lead slip in stoppage time. The hosts were the better side for large periods with Colin Healy running the show once again, but Shels' defence held out well as Jack Memery put in a tireless shift at the back.

Limerick ran out 4-0 winners against Bray Wanderers, but despite Axel Bossekota's early goals, they were never truly in control, and had goalkeeper Barry Ryan to thank for pulling off some fantastic saves en route to a clean sheet. Mark Rossiter impressed in defence for Dundalk as they defeated Bohemians 2-0, with Richie Towell getting on the scoresheet after a fine performance in midfield.
