The home side went ahead on 21 minutes through Karl Shepherd and doubled their lead 6 minutes later when Derek O'Brien netted. Substitute Philip Knight pulled one back for the Seagulls in the 41st minute.

Wanderers could have grabbed a point in the dying moments when Robbie Doyle was denied by Galway keeper Barry Ryan.

HORNY WOMAN FEATURED ON NEWS OF THE WEIRD



A 101-year-old woman has grown a horn on her head - and now fears she's growing another one.


Zhang Ruifang, of Linlou village, in central China's Henan province, noticed a small lump on her forehead last year.

But it is now six centimetres long - and a small lump has now appeared on the other side of her forehead.

Her youngest son, Zhang Guozheng, 60, said the horn started as a patch of thick, rough skin on the left side of her forehead.

"We didn't pay too much attention to it at first," he said. "But as time went on it just grew and grew.

"And now there is something growing on the right side of her forehead and it seems quite possible that it's another horn."

Zhang has seven children - six boys and a girl - and many grandchildren. Her eldest son is 82-years-old.

The family live in a rural area and don't have the money to send her to hospital - but they say she is in no pain and enjoys a peaceful life.
