BOHEMIANS CLAIMED THEIR second win on the bounce thanks to a Dinny Corcoran strike in Garryowen tonight.

The opening half was poor but contained moments of magic from Keith Ward and Bastien Hery.

The former constantly found pockets of space in front of the Limerick back four, while the latter showed glimpses of why he tormented Liverpool two years ago in the League Cup.

Corcoran had the best chance of the opening 45 when sloppy Limerick play in midfield gifted the in-form striker a gilt-edged chance. With only Freddy Hall to beat, Corcoran shot wide from eight yards, much to the disbelief of the travelling support.

His wait for redemption would be short. Five minutes into the second half, a cross from the left was poorly controlled at the back post.

Paddy Kavanagh picked up possession before spotting  Corcoran in the box. He picked him out perfectly and the big striker smashed home first-time to hand Bohs the lead.

The hosts huffed and puffed but failed to produce anything of note in the late stages bar a Rodrigo Tosi header at the back post that was well dealt with by Shane Supple.

In the end, the visitors claimed three points they richly deserved.
