FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Derry City and Sligo Rovers. A surprising first win of the seaon for Sligo Rovers against an under par Derry City at the Brandywell. A first half header from Kyle Callan-McFadden and a second half penalty from Ronan Coughlan gives Sligo all three points. Competitive live football is back folks.
