FOLAN FINDS A WAY THROUGH

Irish Daily Mirror - - SPORT -

Gal­way 2 Derry C 1 A LATE win­ner from Stephen Folan gave Gal­way a mas­sive lift in their bat­tle to beat the drop as they dented Derry’s Europa League hopes. Winger Kevin Devaney pounced on a de­flec­tion to fire Gal­way ahead on 13 min­utes. Derry hit back with striker Rory Pat­ter­son pun­ish­ing sloppy de­fend­ing to shoot home from close range on 31 min­utes. It was nip and tuck un­til Gal­way won it with 11 min­utes left. Derry failed to clear their lines three times and cen­tral de­fender Folan (inset) was fi­nally there for Gal­way to drill the ball home.
