The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SOCCER -

Gal­way United con­tin­ued their bril­liant re­cov­ery and kept their sur­vival hopes alive as they de­feated fel­low strug­glers Sligo Rovers at Ea­monn Deacy Park.

It was a huge re­sult for Shane Kee­gan’s side af­ter Marc Lud­den had can­celled out Kyle Cal­lan-McFad­den’s early goal.

It was 1-1 at half-time and Kevin De­vaney scored against his for­mer side be­fore Gavin Holo­han sealed the win.

Sligo took the lead early af­ter Ro­nan Mur­ray hit the cross­bar from a free-kick up the other end. Re­gan Donelon sent a free-kick into the Gal­way penalty area in the 15th minute and Cal­lan-McFad­den prof­ited from Greg Moor­house’s flick on to score.

Jamie McDon­agh’s shot came back off the cross­bar shortly af­ter and Lud­den equalised in the 44th minute af­ter the as­sist from Holo­han.

In front of a bumper 2,117 crowd, De­vaney scored a stun­ning goal in the 72rd minute be­fore Holo­han added a third three min­utes later.
