Result: Saints 1 - Drogs 1

Darragh Burns scored a delightful late equaliser for St Patrick's Athletic as they had to come from behind to salvage a point against a dogged Drogheda United at Richmond Park.

An opportunist first half strike from Dayle Rooney looked to have seen Kevin Doherty get the better of his former boss Tim Clancy.

The pair had managed Drogheda for the previous four years before Clancy succeeded Stephen O'Donnell at St Patrick's in the off season.

And while Doherty had the option of joining Clancy to continue as his assistant, the Dubliner opted to take full charge at Head in The Game Park.

This tenacious rearguard action was 13 minutes away from giving Doherty's rebuilt Drogheda their first back-to-back wins of the season until Burns' intervention.

The 19-year-old winger began and finished the move, cutting from the right to find substitute Ben McCormack who helped the ball onto Anto Breslin.

Burns then raced to the near post to side-foot the cross past Sam Long with his weaker right foot for his second goal of the season.
