Paul Keegan inspired Bohs with a second half double as they came from behind to see off relegation-threatened Derry.

The impressive Ciaran Martyn, who had earlier hit a post, shot Derry in front on 21 minutes.

A sluggish Bohs got back into it in first half stoppage time when Thomas Heary burst forward from full-back to drill home their equaliser.

Keegan, on for the ineffective Robbie Doyle at the break, then put Bohs in front on 59 minutes to finish off a fine move involving Bobby Ryan and Fergal Harkin.

Another flowing build up, with Ryan laying off a Dave Morrison cross, set up Keegan to the seal the win on 82 minutes.

Derry then had skipper Peter Hutton sent off for dissent, his second booking.
