Result: Saints 4 - Cork City 2

  • Fri, Oct 20, 2017 @ 22:57

St Patrick's Athletic took a big step towards ensuring Premier Division football for another season with a spectacular 4-2 comeback victory over the champions Cork City at Richmond Park.

The visitors had raced into an early 2-0 lead through Ryan Delaney and Kiern Sadlier, but goals from Jordi Balk, Billy Dennehy, Ian Bermingham and Kurtis Byrne forced a remarkable turnaround.

Galway United's 2-2 draw with Limerick means that the Saints top flight status won't be decided until the final day of the season but a point against Derry will see them to safety and they may not even need that, depending on how results go elsewhere.
