Webster

David Webster

Another stalemate at home for the Hoops as a frustrating night saw a dogged Bohs side claim a point in what turned out to be a less than classic Dublin derby. Rovers really only put the visitors under pressure in the final 15 minutes and Danny North was only on the pitch 5 minutes when he almost snatched a late win but his header went agonisingly over the bar. 

There was a lively start to the game with Sean O'Connor setting up Simon Madden to cross to Gary McCabe and his one-two with Michael Drennan created some space in the box but McCabe was crowded out before he could shoot. On 10 minutes a Pender throw-in was headed straight to ex-Hoop Dean Kelly but luckily his shot hit the side-netting.

On 19 minutes a good ball from McCabe saw Madden cross low into the box but the Bohs defence cleared the danger. Two minutes later a David O'Connor ball saw a fine first touch from Drennan and he raced into space on the left but his cross was too close to Delaney in the Bohs goal.

The game was scrappy with too many wayward passes as the visitors closed down the space in midfield. On 31 minutes Fahey did release Drennan down the left but he blasted his cross over the bar.

A free-kick from Sean O'Connor created an opening for David Webster in the box on 37 minutes but he saw his header rise over the bar. Rovers best chance of the half came when McCabe laid the ball of for Fahey and he burst into the box but Delaney advanced to make a fine block and deny the Hoops number 18.

The second-half continued in the same vein but a good move on 51 minutes saw Fahey set up Drennan who saw his shot blocked for a corner. Sean O'Connor's delivery was well defended by Lopes and Fahey's resultant corner saw David O'Connor head over the bar.

The Gypsies were defending deep now and although Rovers saw a lot of the ball they were finding it hard to get past the Bohs defence. On 63 minutes Drennan just failed to control a David O'Connor cross in the box and the same player then saw Delaney comfortably save his shot on goal on 69 minutes.

The Hoops at last started to exert some real pressure on the Bohs goal and sub Waters fine cross on 78 minutes saw another sub Ryan Brennan force a fine save from Delaney from his header.

On 80 minutes a Waters corner fell to Fahey on the edge of the area and his volley on goal fell to Drennan but his shot on the turn was blocked. The resultant corner caused an almighty scramble in the Bohs area and the ball pinged around before Delaney made a fine point-blank save from Drennans shot.

Bohs first chance of the second-half came on 88 minutes when Dillon saw his low shot saved by Hyland at his near post. Danny North entered the fray on 85 minutes and he almost won the game in the 90th minute when Brennan's header into the box was controlled by Waters and his cross to the back post had Delaney scrambling across goal and it was met by North but his header just clipped the crossbar and ended up on the roof of the net.
