Mervue progress in derby triumph
This Galway derby didn't provide too much drama at Eamon Deacy Park, but that won't bother Mervue as they booked a place in the last 16.
Little divided the bottom two Airtricity League outfits in the first half. Mervue hit the front in the 58th minute when Shane Keogh's corner caused panic and Pat Hoban headed home.
In the closing stages, Etanda Nkololo netted the insurance goal.
