Ciaran Kilduff deprived Wexford Youths of a first Premier Division point with a late winner at Ferrycarrig Park to send the champions top of the table.

Dundalk failed to deal with Paul Murphy’s corner on the left and defender Stephen Last beat Gary Rogers with a firm header. But a mistake by captain and ’keeper Graham Doyle three minutes later gifted Dundalk victory. Dane Massey’s cross picked out sub Kilduff whose header Doyle allowed to squirm under him and over the line. That was harsh luck on Doyle as he’d kept Dundalk out in the first half.

The 37-year-old custodian did well to palm a long-range free kick from John Mountney round a post on 25 minutes

Doyle was there again with the save of the first half six minutes later, getting a strong hand to a impressive 30-yard drive from Horgan.

Wexford Youths – Doyle; Friel, Last, Grace, R Delaney (McCabe, 76); Molloy, Wall, Ledwith, Mulligan (Bonner 63); Furlong, Murphy.  

Dundalk – Rogers; Barrett, Gartland, Boyle, Massey; Shields, Finn; Mountney, McEleney (Benson 79), Horgan; McMillan (Kilduff, 75).
