Rovers slump to Bray defeat

Sligo Rovers were dragged right back in to the relegation quagmire after a shock 2-1 defeat away to bottom-of-the-table Bray Wanderers yesterday.

Goals from Ger Pender and Sean Heaney in each half meant that Adam Wixted’s second goal in two games was not enough to earn Rovers anything from their trip to Wicklow.

The win was a massive boost for the home side, who reportedly have not trained in a week due to delays in the payment of wages.

After the game, a heated argument took place between a member of the Rovers’ coaching staff and some of the travelling support in the crowd of just 271.

Rovers remain third from bottom in the league, just two points ahead of Limerick and eight ahead of Bray, albeit with a game less played.

That game in-hand will take place on Friday when Rovers travel to Dalymount Park to face Bohemians.
