National Football League Division Three round-up

Updated: March 4, 2012

Longford go top of National Football League Division Three with a come-from-behind win over Roscommon at Pearse Park.

Cathal Gregg and Ger Heneghan scored goals for the home side in the first half, but Glenn Ryan’s side battled back to nick a 0-16 to 2-8 win. Longford go level with Antrim at the top of the division with three wins from their opening three games of the campaign whilst the Rossies suffered their first defeat of the 2012 campaign and drop to fourth with three games remaining.

Wexford comfortably overcame the The Premier County as the home side scored goals from Redmond Barry and PJ Banville and a man-of-the-match performance from Ben Brosnan saw the Model County to an impressive score for a football match of 2-20 with only 1-8 in reply from their Munster opponents.

The win sees Wexford move up to third (from fifth place) in the table and they will be pushing for a play-off spot in their last three games. Tipperary remain pointless and bottom of the table with the relegation placing looking to be a two horse battle between themselves and Offaly, who stay eighth and last on points difference. Cavan and Sligo – on two points apiece – are not safe from relegation yet themselves however.
