Kilduff off the mark as Pats see off Bohs

Ciaran Kilduff's first goal for St Pat's helped them to an important derby win at Dalymount Park last night.

Liam Buckley's team dominated the first half but invited Bohs onto them in the second period. However, they hung on to win for the first time in three league matches.

A late rally from Drogheda United gave Cork City a scare but John Caulfield's men hung out to eek out a 2-1 win at United Park to move within two points of leaders Dundalk.

First-half goals from Billy Dennehy and Kieran Djilali had Cork in control against the league strugglers but a first career goal from youngster Lloyd Buckley brought Drogheda back into the game late on.

Spectacular goals from Longford Town's Kevin O'Connor and Sligo Rovers' David Cawley provided the highlights as the sides were happy with a point apiece at the City Calling Stadium.

Ten-man Derry City were held to their second consecutive 0-0 draw at the Brandywell as they were unable to break down a stubborn Bray Wanderers.

Vinny Faherty's late strike meant Galway United were under pressure in the closing stages, but two Enda Curran goals and a third from Gary Shanahan gave the Tribesmen all three points against Limerick at Eamonn Deacy Park.
