Bohemians...0

Cork City...2

League champions Cork City made it three wins in a row to move back into a share of the lead at the top of the Premier Division as they saw off Bohemians at Dalymount Park on Friday night.

In front of 2,281 people, John Caulfield’s side struck early through Colm Horgan but then had to endure a lot of Bohs pressure for the rest of the half before Graham Cummins got the vital second goal midway through the second half.

The opener had an air of good fortune attached as right-back Horgan was looking for Cummins in the area with his delivery but the ball travelled past everyone, including goalkeeper Shane Supple.

Bohs weren’t cowed by that though and, inspired by midfielder Dylan Watts, they had the better of the remainder, with Eoghan Stokes having their best chance, drawing a good save from Mark McNulty.

Half-time allowed City to sort themselves again and sub Kieran Sadlier could have scored immediately after his introduction, shooting wide at the back post when a Cummins cross fell for him.

However, they didn’t have to wait too long for the second goal, with Sadlier displaying quick thinking as his throw put Cummins clear of the Bohs defence. He finished clinically and City weren’t going to be denied from there.
