Sligo Rovers lotto, face champs tonight in Cork

BERNIE GALLAGHER won the €200 Tesco voucher in Sligo Rovers weekly lotto last night, Monday. See below.

Tonight on the field of play the Bit o’ Red will hope for a further boost on their impressive ‘away’ form in the SSE Airtricity League.

They face current champions Cork City at Turners Cross, having won the corresponding fixture 1-0 last July.

Online Debate

Rhys McCabe scored the winner that night on live TV, a whacking long distance shot which deceived the goalkeeper.

The RTE cameras were on hand again to record McCabe’s even more spectacular goal against Limerick last Saturday night.

The goal has generated some debate online, as the Scotsman might have wrongly been allowed hit a rolling ball when taking a free kick.

 But panelists and presenter were both agreed on RTE’s “Soccer Republic” last nightn that it was a special goal and were delighted it stood.

Hands Full

Earlier this season, Cork hit four in the Showgrounds and they looked the most impressive forward line so far to visit the venue this season.

In particular, Sligo Rovers will have their hands full tonight to hold in-form Graham Cummins.

In the Showgrounds two months ago Cummins comfortably netted a hat trick and he again scored Cork’s winner last weekend.

A draw tonight would be a good result as the Bit o’ Red bid for a respectable mid-table spot by the half way stage.

Sligo Rovers are at home next Saturday night against a formidable St Patrick’s Athletic. Kick off 7.45pm.

Winning Lotto

Last night’s winning lotto was sold at Maugheraboy Post Office.

The winning foursome was 11, 18, 19, 30 and there was no claim for an all-correct forecast on the main prize of €12,800.

Next Monday night’s draw will offer a jackpot of €13,100 for a forecast of the four numbers drawn.

The top prize will be shared equally if there is more than one all-correct forecast.
