Mannion confident Sligo can manage busy fixture list

After a dramatic defeat of Bangor that pushed them five points clear at the top of the table last weekend, Sligo journey to County Down for the reverse fixture this Saturday.

It’s another tough game for league-leaders, who will host Corinthians in the Connacht Senior Cup in Strandhill the following weekend.

A win there would mean a busy January for Sligo as they battle on two fronts, but head coach Ross Mannion says that is a problem he would be happy to have to deal with…

Meanwhile, Sligo’s Ryan Feehily has been shortlisted for the AIL try of the month award for November.

His solo effort against Midleton at Hamilton Park in Strandhill has been shortlisted along with four others for the monthly award.
