When Dundalk lost their captain, Patrick Hoban, and vice-captain, Andy Boyle, their two most experienced players – Hoban with injury after just 12 minutes and Boyle sent-off after 54 minutes – their chances of securing their first win of the season in Dublin against Bohemians on Friday night looked about as remote as finding a cloud in the sky on a glorious night at Dalymount Park.

Before Friday, the captain and vice-captain had made a combined 341 appearances with the club and had a total of 529 games at senior level with various clubs in Ireland, England, Scotland.
