Wexford F.C. produced their best 45 minutes of a dismal season thus far in the first-half in Tolka Park, Drumcondra, on Friday, but it still wasn't enough to prevent a fourth straight SSE Airtricity League First Division defeat as promotion favourites Shelbourne took the lead early on the re-start and never looked back.
