Longford full value for victory

Drogheda United 0-3 Longford Town
Mark Salmon struck twice against one of his former clubs as Longford Town picked up a convincing and fully deserved win over Drogheda United in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
In only the second minute the Boynesiders were playing catch-up after David O’Sullivan fired home from close range and Drogheda were fortunate not to fall further behind before the interval as Michael Schlingermann was much the busier of the keepers.
Longford eventually doubled their lead on 59 minutes as Ayman Ben Mohamed and David O’Sullivan combined to tee up Salmon.
Drogheda created a couple of good openings in reply, with Lloyd Buckley heading over from close range and Daryl Kavanagh chipping over the bar after a mistake by Longford defender Pat Flynn, but the Drogs then had Sean Thornton sent off and Salmon fired home from close range eight minutes from time.
