SHAMROCK ROVERS hit seventh heaven on Sunday last and they show no signs of stopping. The men from Fr. Murphy Park have now made it seven wins from seven, with Wexford Bohs the latest side to feel the cold steel of their sword.
A facile 3-0 victory was enough to hand Rovers a six-point lead at the top of the table, with second-placed North End United still having only enjoyed five matches this season.
Despite having fulfilled such a small number of fixtures, United still have managed to stay in second spot. Campile United could have changed that on Sunday with a win over New Ross Celtic but instead the Tom O'Neill Park club were held to a 1-1 draw by their opponents.
Celtic's rivals, New Ross Town, had a slightly less successful weekend. The bottom side, still yet to register a point this campaign after six attempts, fell to a 1-0 defeat to Gorey Rangers.
