Wexford getting closer to First Division title.


Wexford Youths took a step closer to the First Division title and promotion to the Premier Division with a 2-1 win over UCD at Belfield on Friday night.

Having been 1-0 down after eight minutes, Wexford replyed with goals from Conor Whittle and Danny Furlong to move ten points clear of Finn Harps at the top of the table.

It's the second time in a week the champions elect have beaten the students.

Wexford need one more victory to secure the title but if Harps lose on Saturday night to Cobh Ramblers they will get promotion and the title.

Harps meanwhile will look to extend their advantage over UCD to five points with three games to play and gain a stronger grip on the play off spot.
