THROUGHOUT a fluctuating season for Bohemians, Steven Beattie has occupied several different roles, but his display at Thomond Park confirmed exactly where the 25-year-old is most effective.

Operating as a bustling striker, Beattie scored a delightful 35th minute volley before turning provider for Paddy Kavanagh on the hour mark.

Rory Gaffney, one of the few Limerick players to make an impact, brought the Shannonsiders back into contention, but the Gypsies held out for a morale-boosting victory.

The sheer desire of Beattie ensured Bohemians prevailed and he was thrilled to shine as an attacker. "I've been playing out of position at right-back and I'm delighted to finally get a chance up top again. To score a goal and to set up the second – I was very happy with that," he said.

"I needed to work my socks off and I think that's what I did. I chased down every ball."

Having climbed from 11th to sixth in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division table following recent successes over St Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United, Limerick were quietly confident, but Beattie had a different idea and he is hopeful that the Gypsies can now kick on in similar fashion.

Limerick FC – Ryan; Kelly, Oji, Folan, Nzuzi (Hanlon 88); Duggan, Tracy (Mann 26), Galbraith; Rainsford (Whitehead 63), McManus, Gaffney.

Bohemians – Delany; Murphy, Byrne, Price, Pender (Mulcahy, 46); Buckley (Walsh 78), Lopes, Wearen, Kavanagh; Beattie (Devaney 88), Corcoran.

Ref – G Kelly (Cork).
