Another week, another two goals for Irish striker Sheridan

Jagiellonia Bialystok picked up a 2-1 win as they look to catch league leaders Legia Warsaw.

POLISH TITLE-CHASERS Jagiellonia Bialystok had Cillian Sheridan to thank for a 2-1 victory against Termalica Nieciecza this afternoon.

With six goals in his first 10 matches for the club, the Cavan striker came into their latest league encounter goalless in his previous two games — a 4-0 defeat to Lechia Gdansk and 0-0 draw with Legia Warsaw.

However, the 28-year-old put them ahead on 16 minutes in pretty fortuitous circumstances.

A strike from Fiodor Cernych took a wicked deflection off the leg of Sheridan to beat opposing goalkeeper Krzysztof Pilarz.

On 34 minutes, full-back Przemyslaw Frankowski got forward to tee up his Irish team-mate for the simplest of tap-ins. That brings Sheridan up to eight goals and four assists in 13 appearances.

Ahead of next Sunday’s final match with Lech Poznan, Jagiellonia trail leaders Legia Warsaw by two points.

Martin O’Neill has opted against calling the centre forward up to his latest squad but he may not have been available anyway as the game clashes with Ireland’s friendly against Uruguay.
