Donegal League One result.

Letterkenny Rovers 3( Jordan Nugent x2, Luke Parke) Drumkeen 0

Letterkenny Rovers got back to winning ways in Sunday League One after a patient and disciplined performance saw them defeat a dogged Drumkeen 3-0 at Leckview Park on Sunday afternoon.

Credit must be given to both sides for an entertaining spectacle in the testing conditions.

A tame start to proceedings  saw Tiernan McCaffertys shot for Drumkeen sting the hands of goalkeeper Blake Forkan but Rovers then assumed control with Patrick Gahirs effort going just wide on 25 minutes.


Rovers then took the lead on 27 minutes when Jordan Nugent fired home from the penalty spot after the lively Jack Dwyer was upended in the box.


Danny Hall and Conor Temple had chances to add to the lead at the end of the first half but couldn't find a way past Luke McGee in the visitors goal.


Rovers though continued in similar vein and did double the lead on 62 when Nugents delicate chip from a difficult angle gave McGee no chance.


Chris Malseed and David O' Donnell both went close for Rovers while the dependable Malseed also denied a Drumkeen route back into the game when clearing on the line after Daibhin Doherty's shot was goalbound.


Rovers saw the game out well and added to their lead with the last action of the game when Luke Parke fired home low to the corner.
