thumbnail Hello,

Cathal Brady and Gary O'Neill both found the scoresheet as Damien Richardson's Drogheda United trounced UCD, while Brian Gartland and Chris Shields were on form for Dundalk

Damien Richardson guided Drogheda United to a comfortable win in his first game at the helm of the club, as the Drogs put four unanswered goals past UCD. Gary O'Neill scored twice in an excellent attacking performance, while Cathal Brady was a real threat from midfield.

Dundalk moved six points clear at the top of the table with a 2-1 victory over Cork City. Chris Shields impressed as he formed the link between defence and midfield, while Brian Gartland capped a strong defensive showing by going up the other end to score the winning goal.

Kenny Browne returned to the St Patrick's Athletic starting XI in place of Derek Foran, and was excellent in defence as the Saints held Sligo Rovers at bay to record a 1-0 victory.

Bray Wanderers came from behind to draw 1-1 with fellow strugglers Athlone Town. Recent signing Michael Barker was the hero for the Seagulls, popping up to score a late leveller and keep his side a point above the relegation zone.

Limerick defeated Shamrock Rovers 4-1 to help hasten the end of the Trevor Croly era, with Rory Gaffney scoring his fourth league goal of the campaign. Deadline day transfer acquisition Lee-J Lynch excelled on his debut for his hometown club, while Barry Ryan kept the Hoops at bay until stoppage time.

Derry City continued their excellent league form with a 4-0 win over Bohemians. Rory Patterson and Michael Duffy scored two goals apiece as the Candystripes recorded a convincing victory.
