The long wait by Bohemians for a win away to Galway United goes on as the Gypsies suffered a second successive league defeat last night.

Galway's impressive early-season form had deserted them of late but United came up with their first win in six games, beating Bohs 2-0, to nudge themselves closer to the top five.

The sides were level at half time but Swedish import Armin Aganovic popped up with his first goal for the club on 66 minutes, picking up on a lay off from Stephen Folan.

And seven minutes from time, former Bohemians man Kevin Devaney connected with a ball from Ryan Connolly and his shot beat Gypsies keeper Shane Supple.

Longford Town gave themselves some hope of avoiding relegation after they managed to grind out only their second win of the season, winning 1-0 away to Finn Harps.

Kevin O'Connor struck to claim the only goal of the game after 17 minutes, Harps kicking themselves later on as Ruairi Keating missed a penalty for the home side on 80 minutes. Harps, now on a dismal run of seven straight defeats, are now facing a relegation battle of their own, their next test against Cork City on Monday.

Wexford Youths are also still in the relegation zone, despite a 0-0 draw at home to Derry City last night.

Derry had most of the possession but were unable to score.
