Sligo Rovers got their first win of the season with a 3-2 come from behind victory over Harry Kenny’s Bray Wanderers at the Showgrounds last night.
They fell behind as early as the third minute, to a Gary McCabe goal, but bounced back with two goals in quick succession.
An own goal from Derek Foran, followed two minutes later by a Chris Kenny strike had them in front heading for the break.
However, Gary McCabe struck a 20 yard free-kick into the roof of Patton’s net to equalise as the sides went in 2-2 at half-time.
On the hour mark up stepped Kieran Sadlier, 30 yards from goal with a free-kick, he smashed it high into the top corner beating Bray keeper Peter Cherie all ends up. It was a high-class finish from an in-form striker, his third of the season for the bitored.
Sligo’s defence held tight for the remainder of the game, as Dave Robertson’s men claimed a very precious three points.
Robertson was full of praise after the game, “It was a tough game that we needed to show character after going a goal.”
“I was really pleased for the players to get the rewards for their work ethic on the night & more importantly for the fans who have stood firm behind the team.”
“The challenge now is to show the consistency in our performance levels as we have in the last 3 games.”
Sligo’s next game is a short trip to face local rivals Finn Harps next Saturday.
