Sligo Rovers draw 1-1 in Derry

Sligo Rovers were denied a priceless three points at the Brandywell on Monday evening, when a late equaliser by Ronan Boyce earned Derry City a 1-1 draw.

Rovers looked on course for the win after Jordan Gibson had given the visitors the lead early in the second-half.

But Boyce’s shot on 85 minutes took a wicked deflection and wrongfooted Rovers keeper Ed McGinty.

The point moves Rovers to within two points of Shamrock Rovers (who lost 1-0 to Bohemians) and St Patrick’s Athletic (who were 4-1 winners against Finn Harps).

Monday night’s results:
Derry City 1 Sligo Rovers
St Patrick’s Athletic 4 Finn Harps 1
Bohemians 1 Shamrock Rovers 0
Drogheda United 0 Dundalk 1
Longford Town 1 Waterford 2.
