Limerick FC guarantee premier division football for 2018 following draw with Galway United

Limerick FC secured their place in the ten team SSE Airtricity League Premier Division for 2018 following a 2-2 draw with Galway United at the Markets Field. Goals from Rodrigo Tosi from the penalty spot and Chiedozie Ogbene had given Limerick a two goal lead before Ronan Murray and Eoin McCormack levelled for the visitors. The result means Galway go into the final game of the season in the relegation zone and they could be relegated tomorrow night if Sligo overcome Derry City. Both teams began the game at a slow pace with Shane Duggan’s wayward cross almost catching out Conor Winn in the Galway goal. The visitors responded with a shot from Rory Hale from the edge of the box which was easily collected by Brendan Clarke. Approaching the half hour mark, Clarke denied Gavan Holohan with a superb low save to his right. The Tribesemen were dominant at this point as the home team struggled to relieve the pressure. Shane Keegan’s men then had a goal ruled out for offside as the pressure intensified. Ronan Murray should have given his side the lead with a low shot which flew just wide of Clarke’s left hand post. Suddenly against the run of play, Limerick were awarded a guilt edge chance to take the lead. Stephen Kenny was set free down the right flank before delivering a teasing cross...

The stakes are even higher for Galway United as a defeat could relegate Shane Keegan’s men if results in the Sligo Rovers and St. Patricks Athletic matches go against them. However, a win could send the...

Limerick FC take huge step towards premier division safety with win over Drogheda

Limerick FC take huge step towards premier division safety with win over Drogheda. Coming up against an already relegated Drogheda side, Limerick needed to bring a high intensity level to the game to avoid any slip up against the unfancied Boynesiders. Rodrigo Tosi had the home side’s first chance of the game but his weak header from a lofted Stephen Kenny crossed was easily gathered by impressive young Drogheda goalkeeper Stephen McGuinness. However, the chance was not a sign of things to come as Limerick struggled to create another chance of note as the visitors grew into the game....
