Wexford FC finished the first of four seven-game segments in the SSE Airtricity First Division without even one win to their name.

There was the small consolation of a share of the spoils with fellow strugglers Longford Town in a dull scoreless draw in Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night.

This was the first outing for Wexford since coaches Will and Eamon Doyle parted company with the club after Tuesday's EA Sports Cup thrashing at the hands of Waterford.

They struggled to create any decent chances though in a dull affair, with the best opening created by Longford in the 73rd minute when netminder Corey Chambers - deputising for injured captain Graham Doyle - kept an Enda Curran shot out with the aid of the bar.

Wexford have another home tie next Friday, April 14, against Cobh Ramblers who lost 2-1 to Waterford.
