Three goals in ten minutes eased Bohs to victory as Sligo finished with ten men.

The highlight of a dour first half should have resulted in Sligo taking a 15th minute lead.

Keith Foy's cross in from the left found Fahrudin Kuduzovic who crashed his shot off the Bohs crossbar.

It all kicked off on 71 minutes when Sligo defender Seamus Coleman was sent off for a bad tackle on Bohs winger John Paul Kelly.

Four minutes later Stpehen O'Donnell shot Bohs in front from Chris Turner's free-kick.

Ex-Sligo striker Darren Mansaram then scored against his former club two minutes later before Mark Rossiter added the third with a stunning long-range shot on 85 minutes.
