Gypsies up to third after Derry draw

BOHEMIANS are now just a point behind second-placed Cork City after yet another superb away day from the Gypsies in Derry last night.

Bohs, unbeaten outside of Dalymount Park this season, came from a goal down to win 2-1 and tee up a meeting with Cork next week.

Philip Lowry had put Derry ahead on 12 minutes but four minutes later Keelan Dillon's first goal for the club got Bohs level, and Mark Griffin, on his first league start, struck for the winner 14 minutes from time.

St Patrick's Athletic dished out more misery to Sligo Rovers with a 3-0 home win. Ex-Sligo man Aaron Greene (right) scored in each half to set Pats on their way, and Christopher Forrester struck five minutes from time to seal the win for Liam Buckley's side.

Longford Town are now into the top six thanks to a 3-0 win away to Drogheda United.

David O'Sullivan shocked the home fans with an early lead and Mark Salmon netted on 59 and 81 minutes to give Town their biggest win of the season.
