A stunning Darren Craven goal lit up Bishopsgate last night (Tuesday, April 12) as Longford Town stormed to a two nil victory over Cobh Ramblers in the SSE Airtricity League First Division.
This fine win for Gary Cronin's side sees them to climb up to third place in the league table.
Craven's stunner - he also scored in the Midlands El Clasico win over Athlone Town the previous Saturday - came in the 25th minute.
Visitors Cobh did give the home side plenty of food for thought but Longford Town wrapped up the points five minutes from time after Eric Molloy left the twine dangling.
Longford are away to Bray Wanderers FC next Monday, April 18 at 3.30pm in the Carlisle Grounds.

Longford beat Galway and drew 1-1 away to Waterford when Waterford levelled in 93rd min
