Recap

Cork City remain top of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division after a dramatic 1-0 victory of Bohemians at Turner’s Cross.

Gearóid Morrissey came off the bench to score the only goal of the match with a minute left of normal time.

John Caulfield made three changes to the team that beat Sligo Rovers last Saturday, with Conor McCarthy, Shane Griffin and Barry McNamee starting in place of Alan Bennett, Conor McCormack and Danny Kane.

The first real chance of the came fell to the away side in the 19th minute. Kevin Devaney’s cross was met by Ian Morris, but McNamee managed to clear it off the line. Sean McLouglin came close for City shortly after, but his shot from close range was blocked. Karl Sheppard went off with injury as Steven Beattie was introduced in his place. The latter almost broke the deadlock but Kieran Sadlier’s cross to the Dubliner was nicked at at the last second by Dan Casey.

Graham Cummins looked certain to score but Shane Supple was alert to deny the striker another league goal for his already impressive tally. Oscar Brennan had a shot saved by Mark McNulty, while Keith Buckley’s header went just wide of the post as the away side pushed for a goal just before half-time.

Dylan Watts thought he had given Bohs the lead after the restart. He slotted the ball past McNulty, but luckily for City his goal was ruled out for offside.

Tension grew during the second half as the vociferous home support urged the Leesiders on to get that all important three points.

The winner eventually came with a minute to spare. Gearóid Morrissey was introduced as a substitute, and he was the man to delivery the goods. Shane Griffin’s free kick from the right was met by Cummins who nodded the ball down to Morrissey. His half-volley was unstoppable as he fired the ball through a barrage of defenders and Supple.

Bohemians threw the kitchen sink at City with only injury time left to play. The home side’s defense was resolute, and survived the brief onslaught.
