Airtricity Premier Division, Monday…04/06/2018

Cork City returned to the summit of the Airtricity League Premier Division when they defeated fourth place Derry City by four goals to two in Turner’s Cross this Bank Holiday Monday afternoon in the re-arranged fixture postponed earlier this season in March. A sixth minute goal from Karl Sheppard set the ‘Leesiders’ on their way and when the same player extended the lead in the first minute of the second half all seemed done and dusted but the ‘Candystripes’ responded and scored two goals in quick succession to level matters. Their hopes were quickly shattered as Kieran Sadlier restored the hosts lead and Graham Cummins consolidated the situation with the fourth goal on eighty two minutes.
