Recap

By Denis Hurley for the Evening Echo

Cork City fell to a second straight league defeat as goals in injury time at the end of each half gave Waterford victory at Turner’s Cross on Friday night.

The Blues hadn’t won in the league in Cork since 2011 – and not in the top flight since 2004 – but Alan Reynolds’ side played well and Héry’s strike in the 48th minute of the first half gave them a deserved lead at the break.

Good footwork by the midfielder gave him space for a shot and he fired low beyond Mark McNulty, who had earlier made a miraculous save to deny Scott Twine, who had been set up by Héry.

City’s best chance of the first half fell to Kevin O’Connor in the 40th minute, his volley from Dáire O’Connor’s cross saved by the legs of Matt Connor. While City pressed in the second half and changed to a 4-4-2, an equaliser was elusive, with Karl Sheppard going closest only to be denied by Kevin Feeley’s goal-line block.

By and large, Waterford’s defence was solid and at the death they broke away in a counter-attack, with Shane Duggan and Bastien Héry combining to give Zak Elbouzedi a chance which he took emphatically.
