Carrick United had to battle hard to defeat bottom club St Saviour’s in Clonard Park last night. A Jack Doherty goal, his 19th of the campaign gave them a one nil victory.
Second placed Hibernians defeated Southend United 2-1 in Mitchell Kennedy Park. Kenny Purcell and a late Thomas Whitty goal sealed their victory.
Ferrybank still lead the table with 35 points. Hibernians have moved on to a total of 34 points and Carrick are in third position with 32 points but they have a game in hand of Ferrybank who they play at the Village Grounds on Saturday night.
That game is expected to attract the largest attendance at a Waterford Premier League game for many years. Kick-off will be at 7pm.
