94'

FULL TIME!

It has somehow finished 1-0 to St.Patricks Athletic. Conor Kenna's header may have taken a deflection before going in. Sligo had countless chances, none better than captain Richie Ryan's at the end, which hit the post. However, Sligo's bid for a first league title since 1977 has taken a major blow. Good night.
