Waterford FC had to settle for a point at the RSC last night as they were held to a one all draw by Sligo Rovers.
The Blues took the lead on eight minutes after an own goal by Sligo’s Kyle Callan-McFadden.
However the visitors equalised thanks to a Raffaele Cretaro header on the brink of half-time.
Both teams finished the game with ten players – Rovers captain Kyle McFadden was sent off on 70 minutes after picking up a second yellow card. Blues defender Dave Webster was handed a straight red card for an elbow on the Sligo goalkeeper.
Coutney Duffus tried his luck from distance on 89 minutes but his effort went narrowly wide.
It finished Waterford FC 1 Sligo Rovers 1.
