Mata strikes twice to give Sligo Rovers 2-1 win

Two goals inside 90 seconds from Max Mata saw Sligo Rovers come from behind to beat Bohemians 2-1 in Sunday’s re-arranged SSE Airtricity League Premier Division game at the Showgrounds.

John O’Sullivan had given Bohs the lead early in the second-half – only for Mata, a half-time substitute by Rovers manager John Russell, to score twice in two minutes and turn the contest on its head.

The win moves Rovers to within one point of fourth-placed St Patrick’s Athletic on the league table.

The two clubs meet in the Premier Division at Inchicore next Sunday.
