LEADERS Galway United denied Treaty United a fifth First Division League win on the trot with a clear-cut 3-0 win at the Markets Field last night.
The goals flowed from David Hurley, Francely Lomboto and Ibrahim Keita.
It was an unwelcome 44th birthday present for Treaty manager Tommy Barrett whose side are at home to Finn Harps next Friday.
Meanwhile, a novel Desmond Cup Final involving Dromore United and Glin Rovers is pencilled-in for Mike Hanley Park, Clounreask (Askeaton) this Saturday, kick-off 7pm.
Glin, who are seeking a third Cup success, will likely start as favourites against an area who contested the 2018 final as Kildimo United.
Key players for Glin include goalkeeper Mike Stack, Shane Culhane, Zack Behan, Paul Sheehan, Ajay Behan and skipper Martin McSweeney, while Dromore have influential individuals such as netminder Gary Sheehan, Ben Higgins, Barry Walsh (captain), Ciarán Barry, Tiernan Meaney and Luke O’Keeffe.
Pat O’Connor has been appointed to referee.
