Bohemians delivered even more late drama in a Dublin derby to earn the point they needed to keep them out of the bottom two, Bohs coming away from Richmond Park with a 2-2 draw against St Patrick's Athletic.

They claimed a 99th goal to beat Shamrock Rovers earlier this month and tonight in Inchicore, a goal from Kevin Devaney deep into injury time got them level, Bohs having hauled back a 2-0 deficit.

Just three minutes into the game, Saints striker Jake Keegan got on the end of a cross by Dean Clarke and his shot got the better of Bohs keeper Shane Supple, and two minutes into the second half Pat's doubled the lead, Kevin Toner's headed effort from Conan Byrne's corner going in with a touch from Keegan.

Pat's suffered a blow when Ryan Brennan was sent off for a second bookable offence, a dive, on 52 minutes and they Gypsies got back into the game on 72 minutes left, Dinny Corcoran with the vital touch after Barry Murphy spilled Dan Byrne's cross and with seconds remaining in added time, Darragh Leahy's cross was touched in by sub Devaney.
