THE old rivals of Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk will have to do battle once more this season after a 1-1 draw in a tense Oriel Park sent their FAI Cup semi-final battle to a replay.

Dundalk, who beat Rovers 3-0 in Tallaght Stadium in the final of the EA Sports Cup last month, now head back to the Dublin venue on Tuesday October 10th, Rovers and Dundalk fighting for the right to face Cork City in the final at Lansdowne Road next month.

Stephen Kenny's side had gone in front early on thanks to a well-worked goal on nine minutes from Robbie Benson, former Rovers man Stephen O'Donnell the architect.

Dundalk almost doubled their lead just before the break but keeper Tomer Chencinski did well to save from Patrick McEleney.

Rovers had more of the ball in the second half and finally drew level on 75 minutes through Brandon Miele, the former U21 cap left unmarked in the box to finish from a Ronan Finn pass, though the Hoops finished with 10 men as David McAllister was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Chris Shields.

Benson did have the ball in the Rovers net on 88 minutes but the effort was disallowed as he was offside, so the sides meet yet again in a replay in nine days' time.
