Dave Morrison hit a stunning goal to move Bohs up to second in the table and close the gap on leaders Shelbourne to ten points.

The only goal of the game came on 20 minutes when Glen Crowe skilfully laid off a long clearance from Shay Kelly and Morrison beat Stephen O’Brien with a perfectly placed dipping shot from 30 yards.

Crowe headed a Morrison corner off a post early in the second half while Dean Fitzgerald came closest to levelling for Town on 62 minutes when he also hit a post as the midlanders' goal drought continued.
