Furlong sparks Cork rally

Cork City 2 Bohemians 1

Second-half goals from Danny Furlong and Daryl Horgan helped Cork City to overturn a half-time deficit to beat Bohemians at Turner's Cross.

Cork remain unbeaten in all competitions this season.

Unfortunately, the game was marred by a pitch invasion involving a half-dozen or so Bohemians fans following their side's goal.

With an unimpressed FAI CEO John Delaney in attendance, the visitors are likely to be punished in the coming days for the behaviour of a minority of their fans.

It was a pity because the visitors were producing a fine performance on the pitch, the lead goal coming from a nice Owen Heary header, who turned in Ryan McEvoy's corner three minutes before half-time.

City were a transformed side in the second period, and they drew level within six minutes through Furlong.

Daryl Kavanagh played a nice through ball to the striker, who finished neatly into the bottom left corner past Bohs goalkeeper Dean Delany.

And by the hour mark the home team were in front. Again Kavanagh provided the assist, as Horgan struck home the finish. Delany managed to get a hand to it but couldn't keep it out.

Furlong came closest to adding a third when he rattled the bar with five minutes to go.

Cork City – McNulty; N Horgan, K Murray, D Murray, D Murphy; Morrissey, Healy, Duggan, D Horgan (Rundle 90); Furlong, Kavanagh (Turner 86).

Bohemians – Delany; Pender, Heary, Lopes, Byrne; Buckley, McEvoy, Traynor (Scully 71), Devaney, Moore (Nangle 63); Lyons (Hanaphy 80).

Ref – P Sutton (Clare).
