Sligo Rovers drew 3-3 with Cabinteely in the final pre-season match before the start of the 2018 SSE Airtricity Premier Divison at The Showgrounds. 

Rovers took an early lead through Ally Roy, before the visitors hit back on 18 minutes. 

Cabinteely led at the break from a penalty before Caolan McAleer teed up an equaliser by Adam Morgan.

A third goal by Cabinteely was cancelled out by McAleer and Seamus Sharkey could have won it but hit the post from a late corner.
