Watch: Cillian Sheridan Stars In Polish League Game Of The Season

'SHERRY DAN, KILLY ANNE SHERRY DAN,' was the cry from Polish commentators on Friday night during one of the most exciting games of the Polish season.

League leaders Jagiellonia Bialystok beat Zablebie Lubin 4-3 with two of the victor's goals coming via their recent Irish acquisition, Cillian Sheridan. The Cavan man joined Jagiellonia from Cypriot team Omonia on a two-and-a-half year deal in late February.

After going 1-0 down to the home side after 15 minutes, Jagiellonia hit back just two minutes later when Sheridan reacted quickly to superbly volley home an equaliser. Seven minutes before half-time, Sheridan would put his side ahead from the penalty spot.

Jagiellonia would again have to come from behind to win the game though. After going 3-2 down in the second half, they scored twice in the final 14 minutes to eventually win 4-3.

The winner, a 92nd minute finish from Lithuanian Arvydas Novikovas, was assisted by Sheridan.

The 28-year-old now has three goals in five games for his new team. Last Sunday, against Nieciecza, Sheridan scored the winner from a penalty.
