Irvinestown Wanderers 5 Lisnaskea Rovers 0

Irvinestown Wanderers made it back to back wins with a comfortable victory over bottom placed Lisnaskea Rovers on Saturday.
Wanderers boss Rory Cassidy had been starting to look over his shoulder at the drop zone but six points from their last two games has pushed them up the table and hr is hopeful that they can now go on and move further up the table in the coming weeks.
Wanderers had led at half time through a Stephen Sheridan penalty and they controlled things after the break as John Doonan, Sheridan and a Joey Miller brace secured a 5-0 win.
“That’s two wins in a row and and it puts us in a much better position now than we were,” said Cassidy. “Hopefully now we can push on and climb the table.”
Cassidy was not happy with his side’s first half display but felt that they were much better after the break.
“We weren’t at our best in the first half and I told the boys that at half time but in fairness they lifted their game in the second half and in the end we were comfortable,” he said.
For Rovers, the bid for survival is looking more difficult with each passing week and manager George Elliott admits that they are being badly hit by having players missing each week.
“We had a depleted squad and that has been the problem each week,” he said. “We tried to frustrate them in the first half and it worked until they were awarded what I felt was a soft penalty. I don’t think it would have changed the outcome anyway and they pushed on in the second half,” he said.
There was little between the sides in the first half but it was Irvinestown who were to take the lead midway through the period when Stephen Sheridan converted from the spot after Liam Murphy was upended, the referee waving away the Rovers protests.
And the home side doubled their advantage in the 65th minutes as John Doonan met a corner to head home for 2-0.
Wanderers went on to control things after this and from the kick off Sean Cassidy chased a back pass to goalkeeper Mattie McGrade and under pressure he could only find Gary Maguire who headed on to Sheridan who tucked away his second of the day.
Miller then got in on the act in the 84th minute as he bagged a fourth with a run from deep and a finish to the corner.
And Miller grabbed a second five minutes later when he rounded off a good move by slotting home number five.
