Ashbourne resident Gary O'Neill popped up with a vital 89th minute equaliser for Robbie Horgan's Drogheda Utd last night at Dalymount Park to extend the club's unbeaten run to three games and secure a place at the top of the table.
This was excellent result for Drogheda who were two down after only half an hour but O'Neill reduced the deficit with a fine goal before the break.
Dunboyne man Cathal Brady also featured for Drogheda at midfield and was unlucky not to score shortly after the resumption. O'Neill grabbed the equaliser near the end.
Drogheda will host Derry City next Friday night (21st March) at 7.45 – a game that should bring another big crowd to United Park.
The Drogheda Utd u-19s will host Cork City in the Elite Division on Saturday 22nd March (2pm) and till then be travelling to Cobh on Wednesday 26th March to tackle the local Ramblers in the final of the U-19 Cup.
Other Meath players in action last night didn't fare quite as well with Bohermeen man Gary Rogers on the losing side as Sligo Rovers were involved in the 'shock of the night' as they lost (0-1) to Bray at the Carisle Grounds.
Kealan Dillon, who lives in Clonmellon, played for Athlone Town and Barry Clancy (Enfield) was a sub as they lost (1-4) against Shamrock Rovers – Trim man David O'Connor is on the injured list for the Dubliners after he sustained a knock last week against Derry City.
