Live Updates for Drogheda United -v- Sligo Rovers

94'

Thats it from  Patrick O' Connor at Head in the Game Park in Drogheda, hope you enjoyed the live updates

94'

The game ends in stalemate, a 0-0 draw , very scrappy in the first half, a little better in the second period but neither side did enough to warrant the three points.

Apart from a few half chances for both teams, there were few clear cut chances created by either team over the course of the 90 minutes.

A point apiece at least will keep both teams in contention for one of  the top four positions.
