Sligo Rovers enjoy 3-1 win against Bohs

Sligo Rovers gave themselves a timely boost on Friday night with a commanding 3-1 win over Bohemians at the Showgrounds.

In what was Rovers best display for several weeks, Kailan Barlow scored his first senior goal for the club  season to put Rovers in front.

Max Mata made it 2-0 before half-time – and the third goal was a fine finish from the edge of the box by Stefan Radosavljevic in the second half.

Bohemians pulled one back in the closing quarter but – overall – Rovers were full value for their win.

Elsewhere, Shamrock Rovers lost 2-0 in Dundalk while St Pat’s hit UCD for seven.

In the First Division, Finn Harps struggles deepened with a 6-1 loss away to Waterford.
