In the SSE Airtricity Premier Division on Monday night, champions Shamrock Rovers suffered a shock defeat to Waterford, losing 3-1 at Tallaght Stadium.

It was the worst possible start for Rovers as a Leon Pohls own goal gave the visitors the lead after three minutes. Five minutes later, Johnny Kenny scored to level things up for the champions.


Dean McMenamy restored Waterford's lead in the 17th minute before Connor Parsons scored a second half goal to seal the win.

Elsewhere, Drogheda United defeated Dundalk 2-1. Sligo Rovers defeated St Patrick's Athletic on a 1-0 scoreline.
