Clodiagh Rangers travelled to Latteragh last Sunday to face Sallypark as they look to continue their good form of late and move into double figures in league points and came away win their first league win on the road this season in an entertaining tie where the Drombane side ran out 4-3 winners.

The game exploded into life when Clodiagh were awarded a penalty for an infringement in the area by the home side which Paul Doyle slotted home after just ten minutes.

The home side levelled shortly afterwards in somewhat dubious fashion when the referee deemed a well saved header had crossed the line. Both sides had chances to take the lead in the first half, with Colm Breen coming closet with a deft lob which sailed narrowly wide. However, neither side capitalised as it remained level at the break in a game which became a battle of will and determination.

Clodiagh once again took the lead early in the second half with a great team goal which started on the left flank and after some neat interchanges, Shane O'Dwyer slotted home from the edge of the area to finish the move he had started. Not long after, the visitors were rocked with two quick fire goals from the Lattergah side as Clodiagh were guilty of some wayward play and found themselves 3 - 2 down.

It could have been worse as Clodiagh had a combination of the post and a flying save from Adrian Cooke to keep the deficit to the minimum. Having settled after that ten minute spell, Clodiagh pushed and were awarded a succession of corners and after Sallypark failed to clear their lines, Brian Carroll tapped home to level matters.

With renewed impetus and the injection of fresh legs in the shape of Matt Ryan and John Ryan, Clodiagh pushed for the winner and once again were thankful to the prolific Paul Doyle who was played through and clinically slotted home to cap another fine performance.

Clodiagh were pushed all the way late in the game as they home side piled on the pressure, but the Drombane men stood strong and were thankful to Michael Browne with a late goal line clearance to seal another three points which sees the Drombane move into third position in the Premier League.
