Sligo Win FAI Cup In Dramatic Fashion


Sligo Rovers won their fifth FAI Cup in dramatic fashion as a late goal from Anthony Elding secured a 3-2 win over a spirited Drogheda United, who thought Ryan Brennan’s late equaliser had done enough to warrant extra time.

Drogheda United started the game counter attacking all of Sligo’s attacks in a 4-1-4-1 formation. Mick Cooke knew his side were the underdogs here and he set up his side perfectly.

Drogheda began well and restricted the play of their opponents, with Drogs striker Gary O’Neill in attendance to cheer on his side following his recent diagnosis with cancer.

Sligo Rovers did however have a half-hearted penalty claim turned down as former Shamrock Rovers man Aaron Greene was sent tumbling when he broke inside the box however his claims were waved away by Refereee Paul Tuite. Continue reading

Millien In Contention But Ndo A Doubt For Setanta Semi Final

Sligo Rovers take on Crusaders in the first leg of the Setanta Cup semi-final at Seaview on Monday night.

Rovers qualified for the last four by beating Glentoran 3-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.

Joseph Ndo is a doubt for the game after picking up a foot injury in the 1-1 draw with Derry City last Friday in the Airtricity Premier Division. He will be assessed before the game.

Pascal Millien comes into contention for Ian Baraclough’s squad for the first time.

Baraclough said: “It is a big game for the club as all semi-finals are. I want to come away from the first leg with a strong position even though we’re away from home.

“We’re not going to sit back and defend but we certainly have to be on our mettle because they’ll be similar to Derry last Friday night I think. They’ll play a direct game where there’ll be in our faces and we have to be able to deal with it.”
