There were two fixtures played on Saturday with Waterford defeating  Shelbourne with the only goal in Tolka Park while Shamrock Rovers increased their lead at the summit with a three one victory over  Finn Harps in Tallaght Stadium.

The 2020 Airtricity League Premier Division resumed at 5.45pm this Friday afternoon with the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium meeting of Derry City and Sligo Rovers. The visiting ‘Bit o’ Red’ secured a comfortable two nil victory against their extremely lack lustre ‘Candystripes’ hosts to garner their first points of the season. In the second Premier Division contest played later in the evening, hosts Dundalk were held to a one all draw by visitors St Patrick’s Athletic in Oriel Park.
