Saints Win Away At Limerick

  • Sat, Mar 28, 2015 @ 21:51

Aaron Greene was the hero for St Patrick's Athletic as he bagged a brace in a 2-1 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division victory over winless Limerick FC at a windy Jackman Park in front of just 425 spectators.

Given Dundalk's perfect start to the season, Liam Buckley's charges knew a win was required to keep the gap manageable and they took the lead on the half-hour mark.

Killian Brennan played a near-post corner to the feet of Chris Forrester, whose close-range effort was stopped by Limerick keeper Conor O'Donnell.

A second effort from Forrester was also blocked, and after a scramble in the area, it was Greene who poked the ball home from six yards out.

Pat's made it 2-0 in the 73rd minute with a moment of magic from Greene as his first-time chip from the edge of the area made the game safe.
