Saints Win And Extend Winning Streak To 5

  • Fri, Jul 17, 2015 @ 23:19

Two second-half goals secured a fifth consecutive league win for St Patrick's Athletic as they shrugged off their European woes with this a hard-earned 2-0 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division success over Drogheda United.

Although Killian Brennan struck the crossbar with an early free-kick for St Pat's, Drogheda had the better opportunities in open play in the first half, notably when Tiarnan Mulvenna shot wide with only Brendan Clarke to beat.

Brennan had a penalty saved by Micheal Schlingermann and the Boynesiders looked on course for a point with 20 minutes left, but in the 75th minute Brennan headed home a corner and deep into stoppage time Jamie McGrath sealed victory for the away side.
