Watch goals: Rovers reach EA Sports semi-finals
Sligo Rovers reached the EA Sports Cup semi-final after a convincing 4-0 victory over Limerick at Thomond Park on Monday evening.
With seven minutes of the half remaining, Rovers doubled their lead with a goal almost identical to their first. Djilali with the corner again picked out the unmarked Gavin Peers who found the back of the net with a header.
Rovers cruised home in the second period and it was marked by a goal for North in trademark style.
Lee Lynch took advantage of a mistake by the Limerick defence to pass the ball through for the striker and he slotted home. The celebrations afterwards included the 10 Rovers outfield players to acclaim North's significant goal.
Evan McMillan, one of three substitutes along with Ryan Connolly and Jake Dykes, then made it 4-0 as he showed fantastic composure to place the ball in the corner of the net from the edge of the area with his left foot.
The draw for the semi-finals will contain Drogheda Unied, Rovers, Derry City and St Patrick's Athletic/Shamrock Rovers.
The Bit o' Red meet Cork City this Friday in Turner's Cross in the Airtricity Premier Division.
