Derry City ended their three-game losing league run when they drew 1-1 away to one-from-bottom Sligo Rovers.

Rovers top scorer Kieran Sadlier shot the hosts into the lead on the half hour after the City defence failed to clear Craig Roddan's cross.

Derry got level just six minutes later when Conor McDermott's effort was deflected in by Kyle Callan-McFadden for an own goal.

It was Derry's first goal in 310 minutes of football.

Cathal Farren blazed over the crossbar seven minutes from time as Derry tried to find a late winner.

New Sligo boss Gerard Lyttle was introduced to the home supporters before the kick-off.

The 39-year-old from Belfast was appointed on Friday, having resigned from Irish Premiership club Cliftonville to become Dave Robertson's successor.

Declan McIntyre continued as caretaker boss for Saturday's game.
