Recap

Cork City picked up their second 1-0 win in a row after defeating Sligo Rovers tonight at Turner’s Cross. The win leaves City two points behind leaders Dundalk.

City boss John Caulfield watched from the stands as John Cotter led the team from the touchline. The starting eleven and substitutes bench was unchanged from last Friday’s win over St> Patrick’s Athletic.

The home side almost took the lead inside two minutes. Colm Horgan crossed for Graham Cummins, but Sligo goalkeeper Mitchell Beeney.

Barry McNamee’s neat one-two with Cummins setup the former, but his goal-ward shot was also blocked.

Karl Sheppard’s cross just before half-time had Beeney scrambling but he managed to tip it over the bar for a corner. The resulting corner was taken quickly and Kieran Sadlier fired an effort at goal, but again there were too many bodies there to keep it out.

The champions missed a golden opportunity to open the scoring on the hour mark. Cummins slipped Sadlier in down the left, and his crossed found McNamee with the goal at his mercy. The Donegal-native somehow steered his shot wide, when perhaps it was easier to score.

The Leesiders got their reward 12 minutes from time. Substitute Jimmy Keohane got on the end of Horgan’s deflected cross. He chested the ball down and fired it into the bottom corner of the net.
