thumbnail Hello,

The Cameroonian international midfielder pulled the strings in midfield as Sligo Rovers returned to winning ways, while Rory Patterson's double helped Derry defeat Bray

Sligo Rovers recorded their first win in five games, defeating UCD 5-2 as the Airtricity Premier Division headed into the mid-season break.

Joseph Ndo was instrumental to the Bit o' Red's convincing victory, putting in a first-class performance in the middle of the park. Sligo's title ambitions were greatly helped by Dundalk who defeated league leaders St Patrick's Athletic 2-1. John Sullivan put in an excellent display for the Lilywhites, and bagged the winning goal for Stephen Kenny's side.

Bottom-placed Shelbourne recorded a rare win, beating Bohemians 3-0 with Dean Kelly scoring twice and Sean Brennan impressing in midfield. Bohs could have easily went down by more, but had goalkeeper Dean Delany to thank for keeping the tie close.

Cork City edged out Drogheda United at Turners Cross, winning by a single goal as Darren Dennehy put in a solid defensive display for the second week in a row. Despite being defeated 1-0 by Shamrock Rovers, Limerick defender Patrick Nzuzi was also on-form, and has proven to be one of the finds of the season. Rory Gaffney also did well for the Blues, and easily could have helped his side share the points. However, Karl Sheppard's goal was the difference, with Stephen Rice putting in a good shift in the middle for the Hoops.

Derry City kept the pressure on St Pat's with a 3-2 win over Bray Wanderers. Rory Patterson took the plaudits with two goals, while Kevin Deery also shone for the Candystripes.
