Bohemians 3 Shamrock Rovers 2

Glen Crowe rediscovered Bohs' scoring touch to give their season a massive lift with this big derby win.

A blunder by keeper Shay Kelly gifted Rovers the lead on 33 minutes. Kelly rolled the ball out before attempting to kick it, but unbeknown to him, Trevor Molloy nipped in and stole the ball to tap it into the net.

But Crowe levelled within a minute of the restart before Dave Morrison put them in front within a further two minutes.

Crowe then added his third on 67 minutes when deflecting Colin Hawkins’ header past Noel Mooney.

Jason McGuinness got Rovers' second goal in the final minute.
