Galway United had a last-gasp header from Vinny Faherty to grab all three points from their bottom of the table clash with Finn Harps on Friday night.
They fell behind in the first-half after an own goal from goalkeeper Conor Winn, Barry Molloy’s effort hitting the post before rebounding off Winn’s back and nestling in the net.
United threw everything at Harps in the second half, and were rewarded when David Cawley was upended in the box. Ronan Murray duly dispatched it.
Cawley then turned provider for Faherty, as it was his cross that was headed in for the winner in added time.
For Ronan Murray, it was his fifth league goal of the season. Prior to scoring Murray found himself heavily bandaged following a clash of heads. We asked him how his head was after the game, “Its grand now, it looked worse than it was so happy about that.”
Here’s Murray’s penalty;
Murray said it was difficult to break Finn Harps down, “Yeah they got that goal which really made their mind up for them on their game plan. They sat right in and asked us to break them down, which is difficult with so many of their players behind the ball.”
Murray also picked up his Player of the Month award for March prior to the game;

He told theleagueofireland.com that the players belief never waned, “We kept believing though, and I think that’s what got us over the line was the belief we have in the squad to come back when the chips are down and it’s all credit to the lads and their heart,”
