Stephen McPhail

A hard won three points for the Hoops as they completed a hat-trick of 1-0 wins over Sligo. Simon Madden's strike on 32 minutes was the difference as the visitors saw more of the ball after the break but couldn't break down the Hoops rearguard.
        

Rovers almost had a dream start to the game when Simon Madden's cross after just two minutes fell nicely for Stephen McPhail in the area but he blasted his shot wide. Karl Sheppard then raided down the right to cross for Patrick Cregg to help the ball on for Kieran Waters to shoot not far wide.

After a lively start the game became scrappy with the visitors playing Evan McMillan up front on his own but Barry Murphy had to be alert to punch away a dangerous free-kick from from David Cawley on 17 minutes.

When Kieran Waters was fouled on the edge of the box on 20 minutes Sean O'Connor tried to beat Gary Rogers at his near post but the Sligo 'keeper got down well to save.

In the 28th minute Madden got down the right wing again and this time Karl Sheppard met his cross firt-time but his effort went high and over Roger's crossbar.

Sean O'Connor was persistent down the left on 30 minutes and he was rewarded when the ball fell kindly and he crossed for Sheppard whoose shot on the turn forced Rogers to push the ball around his right-hand post.  


ball5[GOAL 1:0 - 32nd min.] When a Sligo attack broke down Robert Bayly sprayed the ball out to Simon Madden and his first time flick on for Kieran Waters was misjudged by Sligo centre-half Kalen Spillane and Waters ran on goal to shoot on target but Rogers beat the ball away however Simon Madden had followed the play and he pounced on the loose ball to shoot past Rogers and into the net.


Following the goal the Hoops failed to capitalise on their advantage and Sligo had acouple of half chances before the break with John Russell shooting wide from a tight angle in the box and Sean Maguire was then released in the box but could only win a corner with his shot and Gavin Peers headed the resultant kick on goal but Conor Kenna cleared the danger.


The second-half started scrappy but the visitors showed their intent when Maguire won the ball off Luke Byrne and raced into the box but his shot went across goal and wide.

Patrick Cregg was having a good game in midfield for the Hoops and he volleyed the ball just over the bar on 54 minutes following a corner from Sean O'Connor.

On the hour Evan McMillan got on the end of Paul O'Conor's cross but his header was straight at Barry Murphy. The game became bogged down with both sides slugging it out but neither team could create any clear cut chances. Good work from the hard working Sheppard up fron provided a cross to the back post but sub Ciaran Kilduff couldn't make proper contact.

McMillan again got on the end of a cross on 75 minutes but his effort was easily saved by the Hoops 'keeper. With 8 minutes remaining a Luke Byrne cross into the box was headed down by Karl Sheppard and sub Shane Robinson hit the ball first time from the edge of the box but his effort was straight at Rogers.

As the game entered the dying minutes a Cretaro cross went dangerously across the Hoops goal but fortunately no player in a red shirt could take advantage. The visitors were getting desperate now and sub Ruairi Keating was booked for diving as another cross was delivered into the Hoops box.

It was all in vain however as referee Connolly blew the whistle and the Hoops claimed a vital three points.
