Shamrock Rovers needed a late winner from 17-year-old Dean Dillon - his first senior goal of the club - as they laboured into the last four of the EA Sports Cup at Tallaght Stadium.

It's the sixth year in a row in the semi-finals of the competition for Hoops, but Stephen Bradley's side made hard work of seeing off their First Division opponents.

Darren Meenan and Miele had chances for Rovers before the telling moment in the game thankfully arrived six minutes from time.

Roberto Lopes won the ball deep in Rovers' half. Miele ran some 50 yards down the pitch before threading the ball through for Dillon who drilled his low shot to the far corner of the net.
