Bohs dominated the first-half and Glen Crowe crashed two headers off the Rovers' crossbar while Dave Morrison and new boy Tony Folan also came close.

But Bohs were rocked back on their heels on 51 minutes when Rovers scored.

Shane Robinson skipped between three defenders out on the wing to cross and

Tony Grant scored with an audacious back heel.
