Watch: Cork City’s Sean Maguire Continues Rampant Form With Smart Finish Vs. Derry

SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, Turner's Cross, Cork 7/4/2017 Cork City vs Derry City Cork's Sean Maguire scores the third goal of the game

Cork City continued their blistering start to the season on Friday with a comprehensive 3-0 win against Derry City at Turners Cross.

A 5,275-strong crowd witnessed John Caulfield’s side strengthen their position at the top of the Premier Division courtesy of a first half goal from Garry Buckley and second-half strikes from Karl Sheppard and Sean Maguire.

Indeed it was Maguire’s effort that really put the game to bed. The 22-year-old has been in scintillating form this season and netted his eighth league goal in as many games with a well-taken striker’s finish just after the hour mark.

The home side capitalised on several moments of panic in the Derry defence, and when an attempted clearance rebounded off of Nicky Low back into danger, Maguire reacted brilliantly, turned and did the necessary to finish past away goalkeeper Ger Doherty.

City were able to close out the game from there on out, bagging another impressive three points and equalling a record set by themselves in 1998, and equalled by Sligo Rovers in 2013. They now march on to face Bohemians at Dalymount Park next week, with that record firmly in their sights.
