“Romeo Parkes sent Rovers on the way to their first league victory in four before Pat Hoban levelled the tie from the spot.

“Sligo’s Bermudian centre half Dante Leverock settled this game before half-time when he popped up at the back post to help Liam Buckley’s charges toward their third league win of the season.

“The less fancied Sligo hit the lead with just 27 seconds played. Ronan Coughlan combined with full -back Lewis Banks on the left and his cross was perfect for Parkes as he coolly slotted past Gary Rogers.

“Coughlan got in the way of an attempted clearance from the Dundalk rearguard as the ball rolled into the path of Daryl Fordyce. But the attacker lacked the composure required and could only cushion his effort wide of the post.

“Parkes almost had his brace on 20 minutes but his low drive struck the bottom of the post with the Lilywhites stretched at the back.

“Sligo’s busy start was brought to a sudden halt when Kyle McFadden handled the ball inside the area. Hoban clipping his subsequent penalty down the middle.

“Rovers took the lead again before the break. Parkes flicking David Cawley’s corner towards the back post where Leverock was on hand to head past Rogers for his second goal of the year.”
