St Patrick's Athletic 1 - Waterford United 0

THINGS continue to go from bad to worse for Waterford United as they dropped vital points against a resurgent St Pats at Inchicore last night.

This latest defeat, the Blues' 11th of the season, leaves them only six points off the bottom of the table and with caretaker manager Giles Cheevers leaving this week it's hard to see where the good news will come from.

For Saints boss John McDonnell it's a little rosier. The win, thanks to Keith Dunne's 41st minute header, came after making five changes, two enforced, to the side that lost to UCD last week.

Without key players Keith Fahey and Colm Foley, Pat's still outplayed the visitors and could have enjoyed a greater margin of victory.

Robbie Doyle's deft chip found Dunne near the penalty spot, and he headed home with style.
