GALWAY United remain an act of perfection on their home turf after a quality display on Monday afternoon saw them record a 15th consecutive win at Eamonn Deacy Park as the records continue to tumble in a season that will surely end with the First Division title.

Goals from David Hurley, Wassim Aouachria, and Rob Manley sealed a win that was not as comfortable as the final scoreline suggests, with Brendan Clarke having to produce some heroics at the other end to keep the visitors at bay.

The fact he did meant he kept a clean sheet for the 16th time this season, a new club record, bettering the 15 blemish-free games of Alan Gough in 2006, as United made it six wins from 11 meetings with Treaty Unted since the Limerick outfit entered the league – and they have yet to lose to Treaty as the other five games between the sides have ended in draws.

United made two changes to the side held to a last-gasp 2-2 draw by Finn Harps up in Ballybofey the previous Friday night, with Maurice Nugent and Aouachria coming in for Rob Slevin (bench) and Vince Borden (suspended).

That was only small change compared the visitors, the Limerick side showing a staggering six changes as Tommy Barrett swung the axe after their 3-2 defeat at home to Longford on Friday, although that was reduced to five changes just before kick-off, with goalkeeper Conor Winn feeling unwell in the warm-up with the result that Corey Chambers got back into the side after being dropped initially.
