Anthony elding scored twice as Sligo beat Drogheda 3-1 at the Showgrounds this evening.
A Shane Grimes handball in the box early in the second half subsequently enabled the hosts to go two-up, as Elding scored his second of the night from the penalty spot.
Evan McMillan added a third with just under 20 minutes remaining, heading home Ross Gaynor’s corner, as Sligo effectively ended the game as a contest.
The result means that the race for second place will now go to the last day of the season, with Sligo still requiring Bray Wanderers to do them a favour against Dundalk next week, while also needing a victory in their final game against Shamrock Rovers.
