Cork City produced the biggest shock of the FAI Cup first round, as they stunned Sligo Rovers in a thrilling encounter at The Showgrounds.

Rovers went ahead early on thanks to Romeo Parkes, but the visitors equalised later in the half to leave the tie poised at 1-1 at the halfway mark.

A penalty from Dylan McGlade gave City the lead, with Parkes striking again to make it 2-2 for the final moments of the game.

As the tie headed for extra-time, Dale Holland struck in the dying seconds of injury time to seal City’s place in the second round.
