Sligo Rovers moved clear of the relegation play-off spot with a 2-1 win over Limerick at the Markets Field on Saturday, leapfrogging the Blues in the process.

Rhys McCabe opened the scoring for the Bit o' Red just before the hour with a stunning free kick struck from 60 yards and over the head of keeper Brendan Clarke.

There was a degree of controversy over the goal, however, as the ball appeared to still be rolling when McCabe struck it.

Under the laws of the game, a ball must be stationary in order for a legal free kick to be taken, but referee Ben Connolly was happy to let the goal stand.

What's your view – should the goal have been disallowed?
