Athlone End Losing Streak With Draw Away to Cobh Ramblers

Draw leaves The Town in 5th position after back-to-back losses to Treaty United and Kerry FC.

Athlone Town remain in fifth place in the League Of Ireland Division One table after an entertaining 2-2 draw away to Cobh Ramblers on Friday night.

Luke Desmond opened the scoring for the hosts, with Frantz Pierrot equalising minutes later, before Conor Drinan made it 2-1 on the cusp of half time. 

Town levelled for a second time on the hour mark when Matthew Leal's 30 yard effort was spilled by Ramblers keeper Lee Steacy and bundled its way into the back of the net. 

The midlanders are now two points behind the Cobh, with a trip to table toppers Galway United to come on Friday night.
