Recap

Cork City left Dalymount Park with all three points after a game that was closer than the 2-0 score line suggested.

City started well and hit the front inside ten minutes; some neat play down the right wing ended with Colm Horgan cutting inside and whipping in a left-footed cross which just evaded the toe of Graham Cummins and, in doing so, found the corner of the net.

The bright start continued for John Caulfield’s men and they continued to stretch the home defence with Supple off his line smartly to beat Cummins to a ball in behind the defence.

As the first half reached its midway point, the home side began to claim the ascendancy and they started to ramp up the pressure on the City rearguard as the half hour mark approached. For all the possession they were enjoying, Bohs found a resolute City defence in front of them and only really came close with a couple of efforts from distance.

City came out for the second half keen to regain control of the tie and they almost made an impact immediately but Keohane’s cross from the right was just beyond the reach of Karl Sheppard.

Sheppard was replaced by Kieran Sadlier shortly after that and he almost made an instant impression when Cummins crossed for him but he was stretching and unable to divert the ball on target. Just after the hour mark, Barry McNamee came even closer as he played a clever one-two with Cummins before whipping a shot just wide of the far post.

While they were having the better of things since the restart, City were served renewed notice of the threat Bohs posed when Conor McCarthy had to do well to deny them a sight of goal with just over 25 minutes remaining.

With Josh O’Hanlon poised to replace him, Cummins grabbed City’s second with a superb finish. Quick thinking from Kieran Sadlier as he took a quick throw and released Cummins down the left and the striker cut inside and rifled his finish to the top corner.

From there, City looked content to let Bohs have possession whilst seeking to exploit them on the counter and they almost made it three in the closing stages when first Sadlier and then O’Hanlon were closed down as they looked set to add to the lead.

The final whistle sounded shortly after to confirm a third win in three games for City, who’s next league game is at home to Dundalk next Friday night.
