Drogheda proved St. Pat’s bogey side once again as John Flood deprived the Inchicoreman of going back top of the Premier Division with a late winner at Hunky Dorys Park.

Drogheda, whose only other win this season was at Richmond Park back in April, grabbed the lead on the half hour.

Joe Kendrick floated over a corner and midfielder Paul Crowley was unmarked to head home.

Saints hit back to level a minute before the break when striker Vinny Faherty got on the end of Derek Doyle’s free-kick to score.

But Flood struck to win it for second bottom Drogheda on 86 minutes.
