Recap

Cork City picked up their fourth league win a row tonight after a 3-0 win over Munster rivals Waterford at Turner’s Cross.

Garry Buckley continued his goal-scoring form, while Graham Cummins and Kieran Sadlier also found the net.

City boss John Caulfield made one change to the side that defeated St. Patrick’s Atheltic a week prior; Barry McNamee coming back into the starting eleven ahead of Karl Sheppard.

Waterford started the game brightly, with Ismahil Akinade getting the first real chance fo the game but he failed t convert when one on one with mark McNulty. City had little possession in the first half, but did care out some chances. Sadlier came extremely close to scoring yet with another spectacular, long-range effort, but Lawrence Vigouroux was alert to deny. McNamee also found himself unlucky – his shot from distance rattled off the woodwork.

The goal opening came just on the stroke of half time. McNamee’s free kick into the box fell to Garry Buckley and he made no mistake, finishing from close range.

The second half was a quiet affair until Graham Cummins doubled City’s lead with fifteen minutes on the clock. Sadlier’s first time ball put substitute Sheppard through down the right wing. His cross was headed in by Cummins, scoring his tenth league goal of the season.

Cummins turned provider for the Leesiders’ third. His knock-down was met by Sadlier who drilled his right-footed shot into the bottom corner.

Sadlier could have grabbed a brace deep in injury time. He found himself clear through on goal but Vigouroux again was on hand to keep the scoreline at three. Sheppard also hit the post late on as Waterford, Vigouroux this time beaten but saved by the upright.

City continue a hectic bank-holiday weekend schedule with a home game against Derry City on Monday at 3pm. A win in front of the Turner’s Cross support will put the Rebel Army on top fo the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division table.
