thumbnail Hello,

Two goals from Christy Fagan keep St Patrick's Athletic at the top of the table, while Michael Rafter was on target for Derry City who maintain the pressure on the league leaders

The Airtricity Premier Division returned after the mid-season break, and wins for the top three meant that the table stayed the same as before. Two goals from Christy Fagan, as well as impressive performances from full-back Ger O'Brien and midfielder John Russell saw St Patrick's Athletic hold onto top spot with a 2-0 win over Bray Wanderers.

Second-placed Derry City recorded a 2-1 victory at home against Bohemians, with Michael Rafter grabbing the winning goal. However, defender Simon Madden was the game's standout performer, and was involved in both Derry goals.

Sligo Rovers recorded a much-needed away win which keeps them in contention. Midfielder Kieran Djilali scored the second goal in a spirited second-half performance away at Shelbourne.

UCD proved too much for Cork City, winning 3-0 at the UCD Bowl, with David McMillan adding two more goals to his 2013 tally. Defender Hugh Douglas sealed the tie with a late header.

Shamrock Rovers put in a convincing performance at Hunky Dorys Park, beating Drogheda United 3-0. Gary McCabe came off the bench to score twice for the Hoops, and changed the game after his introduction.

Saturday's game saw Limerick come from behind to defeat Dundalk, with Barry Ryan keeping them in the tie before Shane Tracy inspired the fightback with another well-taken free-kick.
