BOHEMIANS MOVED OUT of the relegation zone tonight thanks to a Dinny Corcoran double.

He showed exactly what Bohs fans have been missing during his recent injury absence as he struck twice in 17 first-half minutes to earn his side a come-from-behind victory.

Bray Wanderers had deservedly been ahead courtesy of Tim Clancy’s 22nd-minute goal as he nodded home Conor Kenna’s headed centre.

Corcoran nabbed his first within six minutes as Kenna missed Keith Ward’s raking pass. Corcoran tamed it expertly on his chest before looping a sumptuous finish over Cherrie and into the far corner.

He got the better of Cherrie for a second time on the stroke of half time. Paddy Kavanagh threaded a pass through for Ward and Cherrie rushed to meet him.

There was a coming-together and while most waited to see what referee Jim McKell would do, Corcoran got to the loose ball and dispatched it.

Twice in the second period the visitors celebrated insurance strikes but both efforts were chalked off by the sight of Michelle O’Neill’s raised flag, much to their resentment.

The Seagulls threw everything at Bohs in the latter stages but they lacked spark and defeat saw them submit their hold on second place.

A precious victory for Keith Long’s charges propelled them to seventh.

Bray Wanderers: Peter Cherrie; Keith Buckley, Tim Clancy, Conor Kenna, Kevin Lynch (Alan Kehoe, 85); John Sullivan, Karl Moore (Ger Pender, 75); Jason Marks (Anthony Flood, 61), Ryan Brennan, Dylan Connolly; Aaron Greene.

Bohemians: Shane Supple; Derek Pender, Rob Cornwall, Dan Byrne, Ian Morris; Fuad Sule (Dylan Hayes, 90); Georgie Poynton (Lorcan Fitzgerald, 71), Keith Ward (Philip Gannon, 85), Oscar Brennan, Paddy Kavanagh; Dinny Corcoran.

Referee: Jim McKell.
