The Sligo senior footballers have rescued a valuable point in their All Ireland Senior Football Championship meeting with Kildare.

Kildare went into the break a point ahead, as the sides swapped the lead at different intervals.

A second yellow card for Sean Carrabine put Sligo to 14 men as Jack Robinson put Kildare three points ahead moments later, in the 67th minute.

Niall Murphy added two points before a David Quinn equaliser in the dying seconds rescued the point for the Yeatsmen.

Murphy ended with six points, as Carrabine (0-4) and Finnian Cawley (0-2) also contributed scores.

Paddy Woodgate (0-4) and Darragh Kirwan (0-3) scored well for Kildare.

Sligo face Roscommon next in a fortnight, who have Dublin to face next weekend. Kildare meet the Dubs in their next game to avenge their Leinster semi final loss.


Full time score from Markievicz Park:

Sligo 0-14 Kildare 0-14.
