FOLAN FINDS A WAY THROUGH
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.
