Champions Bohs came from behind to go top of the table for the first time this season with this vital win at Tolka Park over erstwhile leaders Shels.

A calamitous goal gifted Shels the lead after 10 minutes.

Bohs keeper Shay Kelly failed to deal with a high ball into his area and Richie Baker nipped in to head home.

But Bohs hit back within a minute when Paul Keegan headed home Bobby Ryan's cross from a short corner.

A stunning long range striker from Thomas Heary put Bohs in front on 42 minutes, his volley dipping into the net over Shels' keeper Steve Williams.

Colin Hawkins was then allowed a clean header to Dave Morrison's 55th minute corner to seal the win.
