Saints Advance In Cup

  • Fri, May 29, 2015 @ 22:33

St Patrick's Athletic put their disappointing league form behind them as they defeated Dublin rivals Shamrock Rovers 2-1 in tonight's Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup second round clash at Richmond Park.

After failing to impose themselves in the opening quarter, the Saints took control of affairs with Conan Byrne opening the scoring in the 32nd minute before Jason McGuinness headed home a second five minutes later.

Michael Drennan struck the crossbar for Rovers in the 47th minute and although substitute Gary McCabe offered late hope with a free-kick in the 84th minute, St Pat's held on for an equally deserved and crucial success.
