Respective goalkeepers Barry Murphy and Jamie Ewings prevented the goals as the sides had to settle for a point from an entertaining scoreless draw at Tolka Park.

Rovers were the better side after the break and Ewings made a terrific stop from Alan Murphy's free-kick on 89 minutes before Padraig Amond's cheeky back heel came back off the Drogheda post.
