Check out JOE's round-up of tonight's SSE Airtricity League action

A look back at the action in the Premier Division and First Division...

It was a brilliant night for Dundalk and they didn't even kick a ball as the Premier Division league leaders' two nearest rivals both dropped points.


Second place Cork City lost 2-0 away to Bohemians at Dalymount Park. A first-half goal from Steven Beattie and an 80th minute goal from Eoin Wearen was enough to clinch all three points for Bohs who worked their socks off all night and really restricted City going forward.

The result will come as a blow to City's title aspirations but they are still in good shape, level on points with Dundalk having played an extra game. Meanwhile, the result moves Bohs into the sixth place in the table just two points behind Sligo Rovers.

The game was overshadowed somewhat by a serious looking head injury picked up by Cork City full-back Brian Lenihan, we wish Brian well and hope he's back on the pitch very soon.

Shamrock Rovers also lost ground on Dundalk tonight as they lost 1-0 at home to Drogheda United. Gavin Holohan grabbed the only goal of the game for Drogs who leapfrog Limerick into 8th place. The result leaves Rovers six points behind Dundalk in third place and they've played an extra game.
