Cork City have closed the gap on Dundalk with victory in Sligo
Sligo Rovers 0 Cork City 2
Cork City moved to within four points of leaders Dundalk with a clinical defeat of Sligo Rovers at the Showgrounds last night.
Ross Gaynor made a huge difference coming off the bench against his former team – scoring the second at the death and winning the free that enabled Mark O’Sullivan to open the scoring on 58 minutes.
New Sligo Rovers boss Micky Adams was left disappointed in his first game in charge, and Limerick’s win over Bohemians mean that the Bit O’ Red are just four points off the basement side.
Sligo Rovers: Brush, Keane, Peers, Clancy, Donelon, Cretaro, Boylan, Hughes, Puri (Armstrong 72), Corcoran (Keating 72), Nielsen.
Cork City: McNulty, Healy, Bennett, Murray, O’Connor (Gaynor 53), Beattie (Morrissey 90), Miller (Folan 90), Dunleavy, Buckley, Sheppard, O’Sullivan.
