Sligo got their Division 3 campaign off the mark with a merited three-point win over Wexford at Markievicz Park but they should have won by a lot more against opponents who have now lost their opening two games.

Stephen Coen was Sligo's chief attacking outlet, scoring five points overall, and Niall Murphy's classy 22nd-minute finish put Sligo seven points ahead, 1-5 to 0-1, but Wexford were allowed to recover.

Four points on the bounce in a four-minute spell at the end of the first half reduced Sligo's lead to three, 1-6 to 0-6.

Fine points from Paul Curtis (2), James Stafford and Ben Brosnan took the edge off Sligo's earlier dominance.

Sligo rediscovered their rhythm after the restart and were 1-11 to 0-8 clear by the 48th minute. Indeed, matters should have been out of Wexford's reach but Sligo wing-back Gerard O'Kelly-Lynch blasted wide from an inviting goal chance.

But Wexford, for whom Ben Brosnan, Daithi Waters and Nick Doyle impressed, refused to wilt and substitute Cathal Devereux's deflected goal left just three points between the sides, 1-12 to 1-9, with 13 minutes of normal time left.

Wexford corner-back Michael Furlong was red-carded in added time as the hosts hung on for the win.

SCORERS - SLIGO: Stephen Coen 0-5 (2f); Niall Murphy 1-0, Adrian Marren (3f), Patrick O'Connor 0-3; Sean Carrabine 0-2; Darragh Cummins, Pat Hughes, Liam Gaughan (1f) 0-1 each. Wexford: Ben Brosnan 0-4 (1f); James Stafford 0-3; Cathal Devereux 1-0; Paul Curtis, Nick Doyle 0-2; Barry O'Connor, Barry O'Gorman 0-1 each.
