Longford claimed the two points at Brewster Park

Longford 1-8
Fermanagh 0-5

Glenn Ryan's side possessed the slightly sharper forwards as Longford claimed the two points at Brewster Park, Enniskillen.

The home outfit led by a point at the break, thanks to a brilliant save from James McGrath, but the 'keeper could do nothing about Longford's second-half goal as Niall Mulligan punched home from close range.

All Longford's scores came from play, with Paddy Dowd and Sean McCormack to the fore.
