Shamrock Rovers Reduced To Nine Men After Two Red Cards In The First Half

The Dublin Derby once again delivered drama aplenty in Tallaght Stadium tonight as Shamrock Rovers were hit with two first-half red cards during their clash with Bohemians in the Airtricity League.

Stephen Bradley's outfit are flying high at the league currently but have unfinished business against their cross-city rivals who have had their number recently.

However, Rovers were dealt a first-half hammer blow when two of their back four were sent off within seven minutes.

Firstly, Trevor Clarke was shown a red card after he was deemed to have pulled down Daniel Grant.

Then, Lee Grace was shown a second yellow and conceded a penalty for handball. From the resulting spot-kick, Dinny Corcoran slotted home.

Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy, assistant Robbie Keane and U21 manager Stephen Kenny are all in attendance at the game.
