Clodiagh Rangers welcomed Borrisokane FC to Drombane on Sunday afternoon as third played fourth in this crunch league tie in the race for promotion.

Clodiagh Rangers started with real purpose, putting the visitors under sustained pressure and took an early lead when Shane O'Dwyer opened the scoring for the second week in a row.

O'Dwyer read the break well as he hovered on the edge of the area and struck low to the bottom corner on the half volley. Mark Quinlan extended his hot streak in front of goal, finishing with confidence from inside the area after a good left wing cross from Denis McCullagh to take his tally for the season to sixteen.

The home team were showing no let up at this stage and when O'Dwyer went tumbling in the box under a mistimed challenge, Paul Doyle duly slotted home from the spot for number three.

Clodiagh Rangers failed to build on their advantage further before the break despite dominating possession and restricting Borrisokane to a couple of speculative long-range efforts.

The visitors showed real character however, fighting their way back into the tie in an acutely contested second half.

A change of formation saw Borrisokane begin to dominate around the middle of the park, and building on this platform they were rewarded twice in rapid succession on the hour mark when through balls caught out the Clodiagh rangers defence.

Borrisokane pushed hard in search of a goal that would draw the match, but Clodiagh Rangers managed to steady the ship and found some much welcome late composure to secure the three points.
Adrian Cooke, James Murray, Greg Fewer, Andrew Fogarty, Barry O'Loughlin, Matt Ryan, Denis McCullagh, Gareth Foxton, Shane O Dwyer, Paul Doyle, Mark Quinlan.
