Watch: Cork Boss John Caulfield Jumps Into Stand After Big Win In Sligo

Cork City secured a crucial 2-1 victory over Sligo Rovers to ease some of the early season pressure. Goals from Sean McLoughlin and a Gearóid Morrissey screamer ensured the win for John Caulfield's side.

After a disappointing opening two rounds, Cork travelled to the Showgrounds in search of a much-needed three points. It was a result John Caulfield clearly relished as the City boss lept into the away end after the final whistle to celebrate with travelling supporters.
