Keith Long's team had conceded eight goals in their last two league defeats, but an early strike from the in-form Akinade and the brace from Kelly settled their nerves.

Akinade got the opener in the ninth minute, finishing well after a mistake by Killian Cantwell.

Kelly got his first three minutes later, finishing a rebound after Akinade's header from Lorcan Fitzgerald's cross crashed off the crossbar.

The ex-Bray and Dundalk striker, who has scored four times in his last two matches, struck again with three minutes left when he won and scored a penalty.

Galway played the last half-hour with 10 men after Enda Curran's red card. To make matters worse, substitute Marc Ludden was knocked unconscious and taken off on a spinal board after a lengthy delay, with Stephen Walsh having had to go off earlier with a broken rib.

Bohemians - Delany; A Murphy, Prendergast, Best, Fitzgerald (Caffrey, 90); Kavanagh, Mulcahy (Wearen, 90), Lopes, Kelly; Buckley (J Byrne, 90); Akinade.

Galway United - Hanley; Rafferty, Cantwell, Oji, Horgan; Shanahan, Byrne, Sinnott (Ludden, 58 - O'Leary, 72), Molloy; Keegan; Walsh (Curran, 24)
