Goals from strikers Glen Crowe and Robbie Doyle made it two wins on the spin to move Bohs menacingly up to fourth place in the table.

After a tight first-half, Crowe struck for the opener on 57 minutes when he got the faintest of touches with his head to a Doyle free kick.

Doyle then sealed this Dublin derby with a second six minutes later from the penalty spot after Rovers' new boy Samir Boughanem had taken down Simon Webb.

New signing Garry Haylock got Rovers' consolation with an 81st minute penalty after Paul McNally took down Glen Fitzpatrick.
