UCD came from behind to beat non-league Arklow Town and ensure their passage into the fourth round of the FAI Ford Cup.

Darragh Murray pounced on an error by goalkeeper Ger Barron to slot home in the 15th minute, but Timmy Purcell restored parity on 32 minutes with a speculative effort.

John Reilly headed home UCD's second just before the break before Ciaran Kilduff volleyed home a third to seal victory in front of a poor crowd at the UCD Bowl.
