Watch: Will Fitzgerald’s goal edges Sligo Rovers past Derry City

Will Fitzgerald struck early on as Sligo Rovers picked up a valuable three points at the expense of Derry City.

John Russell’s side came into the clash knowing that they needed a win to get their season back on track after a difficult number of weeks.

And they did just that as Derry City were unable to see past the Bit O’ Red’s ten-men.

However, it was not until late on when Sligo were reduced to a man less after John Mahon was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Yet, Fitzgerald’s goal gave them the platform to hold on.

The former Derry City star picked up a loose ball in the penalty area following Frank Liivak’s cross into danger.

And from there he twisted and turned before finding the net with an aid of a deflection to beat Derry City keeper Brian Maher.
