Ward penalty res­cues point for Bohs

The Sligo Champion - - SPORT - By JES­SICA FARRY


KEITH Ward’s 32nd minute penalty saw Bohs earn a 1-1 draw against Sligo Rovers at The Show­grounds last Mon­day night. ROVERS came into this game on the back of their 5-0 drub­bing at the hands of cham­pi­ons Dun­dalk, and were hop­ing to see some kind of a re­sponse.

The man tipped to be the club’s next man­ager, Liam Buck­ley, was in the stands watch­ing on.

He will have been pleas­antly sur­prised with Rovers’ start to the game, with Dren­nan hit­ting the back of the net with just three min­utes played, as he spot­ted the Bohs net­min­der Colin McCabe slightly un­bal­anced off his line.

Keith Long’s side were awarded a penalty on 32 min­utes when the high boot of Kyle Cal­lan McFad­den was too close to the head of Dinny Cor­co­ran for ref­eree Paul McLaugh­lin’s lik­ing.

Keith Ward’s pow­er­ful penalty gave Ed McGinty no chance, although he did go the right way.

Kilkenny na­tive Dren­nan al­most gave his side the lead again just be­fore half-time, but his vol­ley was well saved by McCabe in the Bohs goal.

The Bit O’Red were ap­peal­ing for a penalty when Liam Ker­ri­gan went down in the box, but again ref­eree McLaugh­lin was not in­ter­ested.
