Rovers to host Waterford in EA Sports Cup

Sligo Rovers will host Waterford in the quarter-finals of the EA Sports Cup.

Waterford beat Munster rivals Cork City 5-3 in a penalty shootout in their rescheduled last-16 tie at the RSC last night, to book a trip to the Showgrounds on Tuesday week.

Before that, the same two sides will clash at the RSC this Friday in the league.

In England, a second half Theo Walcott strike and a late clearing header from Seamus Coleman helped Everton get the better of Newcastle at Goodison last night.
