WATERFORD CONSOLIDATED THEIR place at the top of the Airtricity League First Division table after a 2-1 victory over Cobh Ramblers on Friday night.

The hosts went in front through Kenny McEvoy after just 12 minutes and remained in control until early in the second half when Stephen Henderson’s side levelled.

The free-kick was whipped into the area and Gary Delaney turned the ball into his own net.

But, the home side weren’t done yet and with 10 minutes left, Patrick McClean headed home at the far post.

The win moves Waterford three points clear of Cobh but their nearest rivals are now Shelbourne after Owen Heary’s side slipped into second place following a 1-0 win away to Cabinteely.

The game was set for a stalemate before James English scored the winner with just a few minutes remaining to make it three successive wins for Shels.

Meanwhile, Wexford Youths remain rooted to the bottom of the table and are still searching for their first win of the campaign after being held to a 0-0 draw by Longford Town at Ferrycarrig Park.
