Disputed winner sinks Gypsies

Bohemians 0 Limerick 1

AXEL BOSSEKOTA'S hotly contested second-half winner for Limerick at Dalymount Park extended Bohemians' run without a win to 10 games.

For all their youthful exuberance, Bohs showed just why they've a long relegation battle facing them.

From the 10th minute, when Shane Tracy's low shot from the edge of the box forced Dean Delany into a one-handed save, Limerick had the measure of their inexperienced hosts, who rarely troubled Limerick goalkeeper Barry Ryan.

The visitors took full advantage of the Gypsies reorganising from the introduction of Kevin Devaney after 64 minutes, with Galbraith freeing Bossekota between two defenders.

The French-born striker seemed to use a hand in controlling the ball but didn't hesitate in burying his shot into the bottom corner.

Bohs' misery was compounded when manager Aaron Callaghan was sent off in stoppage-time.

Bohemians – Delany; Albehadlie (Devaney 64), Lopes, Byrne, Barker; Murray (Scully 68), Pender; Moore, Buckley Reynor (Mulcahy 51); Murphy.
