Final Whistle report, with thanks to sseairtricity ie
Substitute Danny Doyle rescued a point Wexford FC by grabbing a 76th equaliser against Shelbourne at Ferrycarrig Park. Moments after entering the fray the teenager was in the right place to nod to the net from close range after Owen McCormack had headed a Dean Kelly corner back across goal.
The visitors had taken the lead just before the interval when Dayle Rooney played a through ball into the path of James Brown and he lofted a beautiful lob over the head of goalkeeper Colum Feeney that nestled in the back of the net.
Shelburne tried hard to wrest back the initiative after Wexford’s equaliser, with Dayle Rooney within the width of a coat of paint of restoring the lead when his shot came back off the underside of the bar.
Moments later James English forced a decent save out of Feeney, but the hosts held firm to pick up a point from their final home game of the season.
