Rovers advance in league cup

Sligo Rovers are through to the quarter-finals of the EA Sports Cup.

Adam Morgan’s fifth goal of the season was enough to see the Bit O’ Red claim a morale-boosting win away to First Division side Galway United at Eamonn Deacy Park.

Finn Harps are out, however, after losing 2-1 to Derry City in Ballybofey.

In England, Paul Cook’s Wigan suffered a setback in the race of League One honours after a 2-1 defeat to his former club Portsmouth.

But John Coleman’s Accrington Stanley won again to stay three points clear at the top of League Two.
