Sligo Rovers found themselves haunted by yet another old boy as Limerick grabbed a dramatic equaliser at the Showgrounds on Saturday.

Paul O’Conor headed home in the fourth minute of injury-time.

O’Conor’s goal meant he became the fifth ex-Rovers player to score against the Bit O’ Red this season and it cancelled out Dinny Corcoran’s first half opener.

“It’s the story of our season,” according to Heary, who is still seeking his first home league win.

“I think their only chance of the game was in the 94th minute, we haven’t defended it and they score the exact same as Cork did at the start of the season.”

Sligo Rvs - Brush; Keane, Boylan, Folan, Dykes; Devaney (Cretaro 69), Cawley, Russell, Puri; Corcoran, Beattie (Neilsen 90+2).

Limerick - O’Donnell; Harding (Hughes 85), Paudie O’Connor (Whitehead 64), Williams, Tracy; Turner, Duggan, Paul O’Conor, Russell; Clarke, Faherty (Rainsford 53).

Referee - P McLaughlin.
