Late points for Stephen Coen and Shane McManus saw Sligo register a 0-12 to 0-10 win for the second week running against Limerick at Markievicz Park.

The sides were level at six points apiece at the break but Sligo held a 0-10 to 0-8 advantage with 10 minutes to go thanks to points from Adrian Marren and James Kllcullen.

Limerick showed huge heart to draw themselves level through Ian Ryan with time running out but Coen and McManus held their nerve to put Pat Flanagan's men into the fourth round of the qualifiers.
