Rovers secure Premier Division status

Sligo Rovers will play Premier Division football again next year after securing the point they needed away to Drogheda United this evening.

It finished scoreless at United Park, which was good enough to see Rovers finish in ninth position on 39 points, four points ahead of Galway United, who lost out 4-3 to Dundalk at Eamon Deacy Park.

A win for Rovers would have moved them to seventh position, after St Patrick’s Athletic drew 1-1 away to Derry City in Buncrana, while Limerick lost 2-1 at Shamrock Rovers.

Finn Harps and Drogheda had already been relegated ahead of the final night of action.

Harps ended the season with a 3-1 defeat to Bohemians at Dalymount Park, the goal coming from an Ian Morris own goal after Bohs had gone 3-0 up.

Cork City lifted the trophy after their 1-0 defeat of Bray Wanderers.
