An early Michael Duffy double and a third from Patrick Hoban ensured Dundalk extended their lead over Shamrock Rovers at the top of the Premier Division table to seven points with a game in hand still to play after a comfortable victory over UCD at Oriel Park last night.

This was nowhere near as easy as many had expected, however.

Following Collie O'Neill's departure seven days earlier, caretaker boss Maciej Tarnogrodzki has instilled a bit of pride and belief in the Students. After beating St Patrick's Athletic 3-1 in the FAI Cup on Friday, they followed it up with another progressive showing at Oriel Park last night.

While there was never any hope of an upset, they did manage to frustrate the home side for long periods.
