Two second-half goals helped Bunclody to maintain their promotion push while for Wexford Celtic they are still second from bottom of Division 1.

Wexford Celtic 0 - Bunclody 2

While Celtic gave one of their best displays of the season at Sinnottstown Lane, there was little they could do once Bunclody struck twice with excellent finishes which set them up for the three points to maintain second spot in the table.

Both sides played attractive attacking football, creating some chances in the first-half, as Donal O'Connor and Paul Malone forced saves out of 'keeper Gary McCleane, while at the opposite end Adam Pike saw a fine effort go just wide.

It was no surprise that it remained 0-0 at the interval.

Bunclody fashioned their best chances midway through the second-half, with Pike giving them the lead, while a 30-metre screamer from midfielder John Breen secured all three points.
