thumbnail Hello,

Christy Fagan and Chris Forrester were both on the scoresheet as St Patrick's Athletic moved joint top of the Airtricity Premier Division table

With Sligo Rovers' home game against Dundalk postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, St Patrick's Athletic made the most of their extra game this weekend to go level on points with Ian Baraclough's side at the top of the Airtricity Premier Division.

Strong defensive performances from Conor Kenna and Ian Bermingham helped Pat's keep a clean sheet against Dublin rivals Shelbourne, while Christy Fagan and Chris Forrester both scored as Liam Buckley's side eased to a 3-0 victory.

Derry City recorded a thrilling 3-2 win over Drogheda United at Hunky Dorys Park, with Declan 'Fabio' O'Brien bagging two goals for the hosts. Drogs easily could have taken a share of the spoils, but Candystripes goalkeeper Ger Doherty was in impressive form in the away goal.

UCD came from behind to earn a point against Limerick and stay clear of the relegation zone. Shane Tracy gave the Shannonsiders the lead after just four minutes, but the Students were good value for the point for the remainder of the tie, with David O'Connor putting in another solid defensive display.

Shamrock Rovers saw another lead slip as they played out their ninth draw in 14 games, with Bohemians the latest team to take a point at the Tallaght Stadium. Luke Byrne was crucial to Bohs' strong performance, helping keep out the Hoops' attack.

Bray Wanderers moved five points clear of the bottom with a 3-1 win over Cork City at Turners Cross. Gearoid Morrissey scored a fine goal for the hosts, while Kieran 'Marty' Waters scored his second and third goals of the season to guide the Seagulls to victory.
