Result: Sligo 1 - Saints 0

Ellis Chapman's 23rd minute strike gave Sligo Rovers a much needed shot in the arm as they beat an under-par St Patrick's Athletic at the Showgrounds.

Chapman's strike from range, handed the Bit O'Red their first win in seven and moved the Connacht men to within a single point of their opponents in the league table.

Without a host of first team players courtesy of injuries and suspension, Sligo boss John Russell handed 18-year-old Conor Reynolds a first senior start in place of the suspended JR Wilson, while Fabrice Hartmann returned to the first eleven for the first time in three games.

The starting Saints, looking for a fourth win on the spin over their opponents, included Kieran Freeman, Jamie Lennon and Jake Mulraney each of whom missed Friday's win over Drogheda.
