Reynolds off to a flier

Waterford United 2-1 Drogheda United
An eventful final eight minutes of the game at the RSC saw goals from strike pairing Willie Bruton and Daryl Murphy send Alan Reynolds’s Waterford United to an opening night victory over Drogheda.

Bruton was expected to start on the right flank but he was surprisingly fielded up front alongside Irish under-21 international Murphy with Vinny Sullivan on the wing.
