BOHEMIANS EARNED A 2-1 victory over Dundalk in the SSE Aitricity League Premier Division at Dalymount Park this evening.

The Lilywhites remain five points behind table toppers Shamrock Rovers following tonight’s setback, while the outcome also sees Bohs leapfrog them into second.

The Hoops, who have a game in hand on their rivals, can extend their lead at the top when they travel to face Derry City on Sunday.

A Danny Grant header gave the hosts the lead early on, before Keith Buckley doubled their advantage in the 15th minute with a well-executed effort from outside the box, as Bohs made a blistering start.

A Michael Duffy header from a Stefan Colović got one back for the visitors shortly before half-time, but they could not find a goal after the break.

Colović, Pat Hoban and John Mountney had chances to make it 2-2, as Dundalk pushed for an equaliser in the dying stages, but it wasn’t to be.

Particularly with the shortened season, the result will be of concern to Vinny Perth, as his side could potentially find themselves trailing Stephen Bradley’s men by eight points with 11 games to play come Sunday evening.
