A cold night in Carlow IT seen Drogheda score a late winner in this pre-season friendly

After kick-off being delayed, Wexford started the game well, with new signings Adam Hanlon and Sean Hurley combining well inside the first ten minutes, the latter only to be denied by the assistant referee's flag. Five minutes after this, it was Lee Duffy's turn to shoot at goal, but his shot went just over.

The game continued in a good vein for Wexford when Craig Wall's header dropped just wide in the 28th minute. 

Immediately after Wall's chance, it was Graham Doyle's opportunity to shine when Drogs' Colm Deary was through on goal, only to be thwarted by the Kilkenny shot-stopper.

Ten minutes later however, the tables turned. Sean Thornton put the visitor's ahead from the penalty spot, and the half ended with Drogheda ahead.

Half time seen two changes for Wexford, Shane Dunne and Mark Slater replaced Sean Hurley and Craig Hayes.

It was shortly after the hour mark that Mark Slater made his mark on the game, finishing from a tight angle to level the scores.

Marc Griffin put Drogheda back in to the lead in the 75th minute, and the game would finish 2-1 to the men from County Louth.
