Bohs frustrated as Murray strikes for 10-man Galway
Bohemians 1 Galway United 1
Dinny Corcoran was on the mark again for Bohemians as Galway United finished with 10 men at Dalymount Park as their search for a first league win of the season continues.
Galway started the better with Ronan Murray bringing an early save from Shane Supple before then firing over the top.
But the visitors' promising started counted for nothing as Bohs took the lead from their second corner of the game on 16 minutes.
It was all about the delivery from Lorcan Fitzgerald as his wind-assisted in-swinger was flicked to the net off the head of in-form striker Corcoran for his fifth goal of the season.
Another Fitzgerald corner on 36 minutes saw Bohs' Dano Byrne scramble an effort off the back post.
But four minutes later Galway were level after Supple was booked for a foul on Murray just outside his area.
Murray hammered the free kick low through a defender's legs to the far corner of the net.
In a dreadful second half, Galway struggled to create chances with the wind at their backs.
They were then reduced to 10 men on 69 minutes when midfielder Alex Byrne was dismissed for a second booking after taking down Fitzgerald.
The home side were left frustrated as their search for a second goal fell short.
