Forrester saves day for Bohs

Bohemians 1
Bray Wanderers 1

Eighteen-year-old Christopher Forrester struck in the third minute of injury-time to snatch a draw for Bohemians at Dalymount Park.

He became the third teenager to score for Pat Fenlon's troops in their last four league matches and after a tired display, the Gypsies will be delighted to escape with a point.

John Mulroy's 49th-minute opener looked to have secured all three points for high-flying Bray, but after they had hit the bar twice in the last 10 minutes Bohs deserved their draw.

After a dire first half, things improved massively for the visitors after the interval as Mulroy broke the deadlock within four minutes of the restart.

Jake Kelly's shot was parried by O'Connor into the path of Mulroy, who tapped home, despite Bohs' calls for offside.

Wanderers looked to have escaped twice late on -- Chris Shields cleared Flood's effort off the line and, as the game entered injury-time, Aidan Price's header struck the bar.

But Forrester picked up a loose ball on the edge of the box and drove a low shot past Matt Gregg at the near post to snatch a late point.

BOHEMIANS -- O'Connor; Heary, Burns, Price, Cahill (Forrester 70); Bayly, O'Brien; Brennan, Traynor, Burke (Fowler 86); Flood.

BRAY WANDERERS -- Gregg; Webster, Mitchell, Prendergast, Massey; Dempsey, O'Connor; Mulroy (Zambra 72), Shields, Kelly; Murphy (O'Neill 75).

REF -- D Hancock (Dublin).
