Limerick were denied victory at the Markets Field by a last-gasp Bohemians equaliser.

After a dire first half on dreadful surface, the home team were on course to claim their second victory on the trot under new boss Tommy Barrett when Cian Coleman scored from close range after good work from Shane Duggan and Billy Dennehy in the 57th minute.

However, Eoghan Stokes struck in injury-time, powering a header past Brendan Clake to salvage a point for Bohs as Limerick paid the price for playing deeper and deeper.

Limerick - Clarke, Dennehy, Whitehead, Kelly, Tracey, Duggan, B Dennehy, Coleman, Wearen, Kearns (Morrissey 86), O'Sullivan (Ellis 76).

Bohemians - Supple, Cornwall, Casey, Leahy, Pender, Gannon, Buckley (Lunney 87) Brennan (Morris 76), Kavanagh, Corcoran, Stokes.
