Goalkeeper

Micheál Schlingermann (Sligo Rovers) – The Sligo stopper was on hand to keep out a number of shots from Bohemians on the night, particularly close range efforts.

Defenders

Tobi Adebayo-Rowling (Sligo Rovers) – The youngster, signed from Peterborough United in the close season, was strong all night, and his decisive defending kept Bohs at bay.

Ryan McBride (Derry City) – Finished on the losing side, but through no fault of his own. In each half, he made vital contributions where a goal would otherwise have resulted.

Ryan Delaney (Wexford Youths) – Delaney has been used in a left-back spot as well as the central spot he played on Friday night, and the 19-year-old excelled alongside captain Gary Delaney.

Midfield

Robbie Benson (Dundalk) – The former UCD man has worked his way into the Dundalk starting line-up in recent weeks and it was his early brace that set the champions on their way to a 7-0 drubbing of Finn Harps.

Greg Bolger (Cork City) – With Gearóid Morrissey injured, the Wexford man partnered with Garry Buckley and maintained the level of performance which has seen him settle so well. He provided the dead-ball deliveries for the two late goals too.

Shane Dunne (Wexford Youths) – Dunne was simply superb in first start this season after injury. Assisted in the second goal and was replaced to a deserved standing ovation in stoppage time.

Eric Foley (Galway United) - Worthy of a place for the free-kick alone but it was a superb battling performance from the midfielder. He took the fight to Bray and was a bundle of energy and fight.

Kevin Devaney (Galway United) - The winger was in a menacing mood. He tormented Bray right-back Hugh Douglas, not something that many manage. He won the free-kick from which the opener was scored and it was his strike that deflected into Ludden’s path for the second.

Forwards

Jamie McGrath (St Patrick’s Athletic) – The youngster led the line well in the absence of Christy Fagan and he showed character late on to rescue a point for the Saints with a volleyed finish.

David O’Sullivan (Longford Town) – The Longford forward neatly teed up Philip Gannon for the opener and then held his nerve to slot home a retaken penalty that he thought had secured maximum points.
