Disappointing weekend for Treaty United with back to back losses

Treaty have fallen to ninth place in the table, and face table toppers Galway United next, while Longford have risen to sixth.

Tommy Barrett’s Treaty United were left heartbroken following a late fightback by Longford Town at the Markets Field on Friday night. Having trailed for majority of the game, the visitors managed to steal all three points at the death, and put a massive dent in the Shannonsiders’ playoff hopes.

Treaty found the lead after just 12 minutes, when a Marc Ludden throw in was nodded on by Sean Guerins, before being finished by new signing Adam Lennon, who scored on his home debut.

Less than ten minutes later it was Gary Armstrong who popped up with the equaliser for Longford, his left footed effort getting the better of Corey Chambers from the edge of the box.

Dean George produced a moment of magic on the brink of half time, quickly turning and finishing from outside the penalty area, having received the ball from Lee Devitt.

His goal ensured that Barrett’s men held a 2-1 lead at the interval.

Longford were dealt a blow as Aaron Walsh received a second yellow card with just over ten minutes to go, meaning the visitors were down to ten men as they pushed for an equaliser.

It was time for Cristian Magerusan to become the hero, as the Romanian forward powered in a free-kick with three minutes of regulation time to play.

It looked as though Treaty had been robbed of the three points right at the death, but things got worse.

Following a scramble in the goalmouth, Magerusan popped up once more to slot home, and hand his side a dramatic victory.

The Shannonsiders had no time to feel sorry for themselves, as they faced a trip to Galway to face the league leaders on Monday evening.

Their misery continued, as the hosts dominated as expected, picking up a 3-0 win.

David Hurley, Wassim Aouachria and Robert Manley found the net for Galway, who recorded their third win of the season over Treaty, and look certain to go up.

Treaty now lie ninth in the table, only above Kerry FC, and must regain their form as soon as possible.

Up next for Barrett’s side, is a long haul up to Donegal to take on Finn Harps, who are two points ahead of Treaty in the table.
