While Longford Town are still searching for their first home win in the league this season following the scoreless draw against Waterford at City Calling Stadium on Saturday evening, manager Alan Mathews can take some positives out of their performance.

SSE Airtricity League First Division - Round 6

Longford Town . . . 0    Waterford . . . 0

Town keeper Paul Skinner pulled off an excellent save to deny Mark O’Sullivan from the penalty spot in the 34th minute and Waterford were reduced to 10 men in the 56th minute when Davy McDaid was sent off for a rash tackle on Mark Langtry.

With the numerical advantage, the Town then took the game to Waterford but for all the chances they created they could not get that elusive goal to win the match.
