Recap

Cork City returned to winning ways after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Bohemians at Turner’s Cross today.

John Caulfield made two changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Limerick last Friday night. Gearóid Morrissey and Karl Sheppard dropped to the bench. Jimmy Keohane started in midfield while Garry Buckley returned from a brief illness.

The opening fifteen minutes offered little in terms of chances, Kieran Sadlier threatening from distance but the ball deflected off Graham Cummins.

The home side took the lead moments later. Conor McCarthy played in Barry McNamee down the right. His cross found Jimmy Keohane, who shot from the edge of the area. Again the ball hit Graham Cummins, and found it’s way over the line.

Kieran Sadlier doubled City’s lead from the spot shortly after. Rob Cornwall handled Conor McCormack’s cross and referee Tomás Connolly awarded the Leesiders with a penalty. Sadlier drove his spot-kick high to Shane Supple’s right, leaving him with little chance to stop it.

After the restart, Bohemians came close to pulling one back. Man of the match Seán McLoughlin pulled off an excellent block, diving in the way of Dylan Watt’s goal-ward effort.

Keohane again came close for City on the hour mark, but substitute Sheppard sealed the victory and three points with two minutes of regulation time to go.

City had a free-kick on the edge of the box with McNamee and Sheppard standing over it. The Donegal native rolled the ball to Sheppard and he curled a stunning effort into the top corner.
