Result: Saints 3 - Cork 1

  • Mon, Oct 17, 2016 @ 22:55

Cork City's title ambitions suffered a huge setback on a chilly night in Richmond Park as late goals from Sam Verdon and Conan Byrne secured St Patrick's Athletic a well-earned victory.

The Saints led early on through lethal marksman Christy Fagan before Alan Bennett equalised on the stroke of half-time, a scoreline that stood until Verdon's spectacular intervention five minutes from time.

The devastating loss - combined with Dundalk's win over Longford Town - leaves John Caulfield's City side seven points adrift of the Lilywhites with three games to play.
