Rovers suffer defeat to Saints

Sligo Rovers 0
St Patrick's Athletic 3 
 
A Chris Forrester brace along with a strike from Jamie McGrath saw Sligo Rovers beaten 3-0 by St Patrick's Athletic at the Showgrounds on Friday night last.
 
Rovers relied on several good saves from Richard Brush in the opening half. The impressive Gary Boylan went close on eleven minutes with a long range effort which sneaked past Brendan Clarke's post.
 
Pat's opener came on 62 when despite the best efforts of a host of Rovers players, Forrester's speculative effort from the edge of the box somehow managed to find the net. 
 
McGrath doubled the lead ten minutes later, hitting the net from the angle. While Forrester wrapped up the tie six minutes from time when he tapped into an empty net.
 
Rovers' next game is against Limerick at Markets Field, this coming Saturday. Kick-off is 6.30pm. 
 
Sligo Rovers: Richard Brush; Alan Keane, Gavin Peers, Raffaele Cretaro; Sander Puri (for Ruairi Keating 45), David Cawley, Gary Boylan, Keith Ward, Liam Flatley (for Jake Dykes 55), Danny Ledwith (for Ryan McManus 68); Gary Armstrong.
