Bohemians' winless run at home goes on. Owen Heary's team have now failed to win any of their seven games at Dalymount Park this season but, having played with 10 men for more than half a match, he will be happy enough to take a point.

The main talking point came when Bohs' centre-back Roberto Lopes was harshly sent off for a foul on Robbie Benson in the 31st minute with Benson 25 yards from goal.

UCD boss Aaron Callaghan was returning to Dalymount for the first time since being sacked by Bohs last July and in a game of few chances his team probably had the better opportunities. Dean Delany's brilliant first-half save denied Hughie Douglas.

Bohs were better in the second half but the best move of the game came from UCD as Benson played a one-two with Robbie Creevy only for his curling shot hit an uipright.

BOHEMIANS – Delany; Beattie, Lopes, D Byrne, Pender; Kavanagh, Mulcahy, McEvoy, Moore; Devaney (Walsh, 63), J Byrne.

UCD – O'Donnell; Douglas, Boyle, Kavanagh, Langtry; Belhout, Creevy, Crowe (Burke, 75), Mulhall; Benson; Morrison (O'Halloran, 77).
