Sligo Rovers 2 UCD 1

Padraig Amond rediscovered his scoring touch to score twice, the second a stoppage time winner, as Sligo inflicted a fourth straight defeat on UCD at the Showgrounds.

John Dillon set up Eoin Doyle to play Amond in on goal and the striker fired past Ger Barron to put the home side in front on 28 minutes.

College battled back and levelled maters when Ciaran Kilduff levelled with just two minutes of normal time remaining.

Amond, however, had other ideas and fired home the winner in added time.
