Cretaro stunner heaps more woe on Limerick
A stunning strike by long-serving Raffaele Cretaro sealed a precious win for Sligo Rovers at the Market’s Field and left Limerick that step closer to facing a relegation play-off.
Cretaro was a substitute for injured Rhys McCabe and his crucial goal came after 64 minutes.
Two minutes earlier Shane Duggan had pulled a goal back for Limerick, who trailed 2-0 after Michael Drennan had scored twice for the visitors.
Limerick had reason to regret not taking some of the chances they created in the opening 30 minutes. Sligo lost Rhys McCabe through injury after 32 minutes and he was replaced by Cretaro. Three minutes before the break from a corner on the left the ball broke to Cretaro who crossed to Drennan who headed home from close range.
Limerick went close twice on the resumption before Drennan slotted home a penalty after 52 minutes.
