TREATY United return to action for their third SSE Airtricity League First Division fixture in the space of eight days when facing fellow promotion play-off chasing rivals Longford Town at Bishopsgate this Saturday evening.

Treaty stretched their unbeaten run to five games on Easter Monday when securing a dramatic 2-1 win over Wexford FC at the Markets Field.

Stephen Christopher’s late, late penalty gave Treaty a precious 2-1 victory over Wexford in their SSE Airtricity League First Division fixture at Garryowen on Monday night.

Christopher's dramatic stoppage time strike from 12-yards was the difference as Treaty extended their unbeaten run to five.
The visitors looked to have shaded the contest and taken a point, but Willie Armshaw was fouled before the Cork native sent the 'keeper the wrong way to the delight of the loyal home support.

Treaty led 1-0 at half-time with Enda Curran netting for the fifth time this season. He finished right footed through a sea of bodies, to give Untied a lead after 28 minutes.

The result moved Treaty United up to fourth place in the table, two points behind Saturday's opponents Longford Town.

On Good Friday, Treaty United had played out a 1-1 draw with Athlone Town at Athlone Town Stadium.

Treaty had extended their unbeaten run in the SSE Airtricity League First Division to four games after the Easter Monday hero Stephen Christopher grabbed a dramatic late equaliser for Tommy Barrett's charges.
