13-man Fermanagh overturned a six-point half-time deficit to claim the HL3A spoils at Longford's expense in Pearse Park.

Martin Beggan's 50th minute goal initiated the Ernesiders' recovery and Francis McBrien raised a second green flag 10 minutes later.

JP McGarry and Ryan Bogue were both sent for early showers during the second half following separate incidents but Sean Corrigan's late free edged them over the finishing line in front.
