A new manager, a new dawn, a new direction and a new Drogheda appeared at United Park last night as the team that couldn't buy a win a month ago hit UCD for four.

For Damien Richardson, appointed last weekend, this was a dream start, as his side recorded a third win in four matches, their first at home since May.

All of a sudden their relegation fears have eased. Coming into the game, only four points separated Drogheda from the Students and the relegation zone; now the gap is seven.

Adapting fast to Richardson's ideals, Drogheda zipped the ball around superbly, going a goal ahead via Gavin Brennan on seven minutes.

Aaron Callaghan's side were enjoying their best period of the game before it was taken away from them, playing superbly just after half-time, prior to Drogheda getting two goals in two minutes.

Gary O'Neill got the first of those – profiting from Ian Ryan's back pass before he coolly fired past UCD 'keeper Niall Corbett.

Garreth Brady added a third after Gavin Holohan picked him out with a perfectly weighted pass. On 66 minutes it was 4-0, O'Neill with his second goal.

Drogheda United – Schlingermann; Doyle, McNally, McGuigan, Grimes; C Brady (G Brady 83), Holohan, Brennan, Daly; Walshe (McGlynn 70); O'Neill (O'Brien 75)

UCD – Corbett; Matthews, Ryan, Kavanagh, Coyne; Belhout (Mulhall 80), Creevy (Burke 72), Benson, Molloy (Sloggett 70), Ben-Mohamad; Cannon

REF – D Tomney (Dublin).
