Galway United continued their unbeaten run at home this season but they dropped two more points as Longford scored twice to seal an unlikely draw at Eamonn Deacy Park.

After last weekend’s 2-0 win away to Wexford Youths, this was another tricky tie for the hosts, and despite first-half strikes from Vinny Faherty and Enda Curran, Longford Town pegged them back.

Josh O’Hanlon was fantastic – he got their first on the hour and forced an own-goal off Conor Winn nine minutes later.

United got the ideal start when Faherty struck inside two minutes. When Curran crossed, Faherty had a lot to do, but he brilliantly lobbed the advancing Paul Skinner.

Galway held their composure, and doubled their lead in the 31st minute when Curran was on the end of a Ryan Connolly corner.

It was 2-0 at half-time but Longford tied the game up soon after.

O’Hanlon pulled one back against the run of play, when there was a mix-up at the back for United, and he nipped in to finish.

O’Hanlon played a major role in the second goal too: confusion in the Galway back-line allowed him to drive a shot at goal – it re-bounded off the post and Winn was in the wrong place.

Galway United – Winn; Horgan, Sinnott, Cantwell, Walsh; Shanahan, Sullivan, Connolly, Ludden; Faherty, Curran (Cunningham 65) (Keating 69).

Longford Town – Skinner; Powell, Rossiter, Flynn, Haverty (Mulhall 75); Cowan (Simon 45), Gannon, O’Connor, Hughes (Dillon 66), O’Sullivan; O’Hanlon.
