Watch: All The Action From An Absolute Cracker Of A Dublin Derby Between Rovers & Bohs

Watch: All The Action From An Absolute Cracker Of A Dublin Derby Between Rovers & Bohs
By Mikey Traynor Updated

A ringing endorsement for the League of Ireland was broadcast on Eir Sport on Friday night as Bohs travelled to Tallaght Stadium for a meeting with their old pals Shamrock Rovers.

RTÉ will have been wondering what the hell they have to do to get such an exciting match on their channel as those who tuned in were treated to a feast of football involving everything from penalties, to red cards, to goals.

Rovers flew out of the traps and won a penalty in just the second minute, but Dean Delaney kept it out to avoid a nightmare start for Bohemians.

The next talking point came 20 mins in after an absolute crazy challenge saw Keith Buckly send off and Bohs were down to 10 men.

However, the 10 men would take the lead just minutes later through a lovely finish from Kurtis Byrne.

But the lead didn't last long and Rovers were level within 10 minutes. Barely time for the fans in the stadium to catch his breath.

A whole four minutes passed before Rovers were in the lead as Gary Shaw pounced.

Gary Twigg was on the panel for tonight's game and he agreed with the red card being shown early on.

Rovers put the game to bed mid-way through the second half thanks to Sean Boyd.

And just before the final whistle, 17 year old Aaron Dobbs was named man of the match for a fantastic display.

One to keep an eye on for sure.

So there you have it. A cracker of a match in Tallaght tonight, the result leaves Rovers in 4th place with a game in hand on Derry City above them, while Bohs since in 9th with some space between them and Bray Wanderers in 10th.
