Sligo Rovers stormed to the top of the Airtricity League of Ireland table with a comfortable three nil away win over Drogheda, a brace from Aaron Greene and John Russell goal 8 minutes from time keeping Paul Cook’s side in the hunt for a domestic double.

Another double, this time in Louth, kept St Patricks Athletic in the hunt for the crown as Pete Mahon’s continued their remarkable away run against Dundalk. Sean O’Connor scored a goal in each half to move St Pats to just three points behind Sligo at the top.

Bohemians strong end of season form continued as they secured a somewhat controversial win at Terryland Park. The controversy surrounds the early free kick, scored by Killian Brennan that handed Pat Fenlon’s side the lead.

Galway’s night went from bad to worse on 56 minutes when Stephen Walsh was red carded for picking up a second caution when standing in front of a Bohemians free-kick.
A minute later and Bohs had their second, Christy Fagan scoring from the spot after he had been fouled by Yob Son.

Fagan put the gloss on the win 3 minutes from the end when he added his second of the night to keep Bohemians in the race for European football.

Results:
Galway United 0 – 3 Bohemians
Dundalk 0 – 2 St Patricks Athletic
Drogheda 0 – 3 Sligo Rovers
