After a fairly tame affair by Rovers-Bohs standards, there was late drama as firstly Ronan Finn converted a penalty before Ryan McEvoy struck in added-on time to give Bohs a share of the spoils.
On a fine evening the game started at a slow pace with only a dangerous cross from Bohs Andy Mulligan and a Shane Robinson cross that needed 'keeper Delaney to punch away the only goalmouth action in the first 15 minutes. The first real chance fell to Bohs when Mulcahy's free header from a corner fell to Mulligan and he saw his volley go across goal. On 16 minutes the Hoops had a chance when Dennehy's cross found Kilduff but his shot was straight at Delaney.
On 21 minutes a good move saw McCormack pass to Stewart who then played a one-two with Finn before shooting over the bar from outside the box. On 25 minutes Robinson released Dennehy down the right and his cross was met with a glancing header from Stewart but the ball went wide.
On 32 minutes a McCabe free-kick from the right was met by the head of Elebert but 'keeper Delaney claimed the ball well under pressure from Kilduff. Rovers best chance of the half came in the 38th minute when Dennehy's corner saw Kilduff rise well to head goalwards but Delaney made a fine one-handed save to push the ball over via the crossbar. Just before the break Billy Dennehy blasted a free-kick ove the bar from a central position just outside the box.
The second-half atarted with Ronan Finn shooting over the bar following Kilduff's cross into the box. On 50 minutes Mulligan got behind the Hoops defence down the left and crossed low for Scully to shoot goalwards but McGuinness got his body in the way to block his effort.
The visitors had the Hoops under pressure in the 53rd minute with Murray seeing his shot deflected for a corner before Jason McGuinness made a vital interception to deny Devaney a shot in front of goal with the resultant corner kick well claimed by Murphy.
On the hour a McCormack free-kick went over the Bohs defence but Stewart just failed to get the vital touch. Two minutes later Robinson broke forward and set up sub O'Connor to shoot low on target but Delaney saved. On 69 minutes a free-kick from O'Connor from the left of the area was well defended as awas McCabe's cross from the right a minute later.
[GOAL 1:0 - 82nd min.] With less than 10 minutes remaining a Tommy Stewart cross from the left went across goal and Mulligan was adjudged to have handled as he tried to cushion the ball out under pressure from McCabe. Ronan Finn stepped up to send Delaney the wrong way to score.
The game at last came alive with Bohs pushing men forward and McCormack did well to cut out Buckley's ball into the area as he tried to play Mulligan in. Rovers were defending too deep and failed to hold possession of the ball as the visitors threw everything into attack.
[GOAL 1:1 - 90+1 min.] A long throw-in reached the edge of the Hoops area and Ryan McEvoy swung a boot at the ball and saw his effort go through a couple of defenders and past an unsighted Barry Murphy for the equaliser.
In the dying minutes the Hoops forced a corner but O'Connor's cross went across goal before Ref. Doyle whistled for a free-out.
