A goal early in each half was enough to claim the points on a wet and windy evening in United Park. Rovers played with the elements in the first-half and took an early lead through Ciaran Kilduff but couldn't add to the scoreline before the break. However Sean O'Connor's far post header early in the second half put a dampner on a Drogs revival.
In the first minute Ciaran Kilduff got behind the home defence and laid the ball off for Gary McCabe to force Shlingermann into a fine save and Ronan Finn followed up to cross for Ryan Brennan to glance a header wide.
Walshe and O'Neill combined in the box for the Drogs on 8 minutes but Conor Kenna was on hand to block the danger. After the goal the Hoops controlled possession but failed to test the Drogs 'keeper with the wind at their backs.
On the half-hour Sean O'Connor nipped in to take the ball of a hesitant Drogs 'keeper but Simon Madden's cross into the box was cut out for a corner. McGlynn shot narrowly wide for the Drogs on 35 minutes while at the other end Madden's run into the box needed a last ditch tackle from Stephen Maher to deny him a shot on goal.
A minute later Madden again was the provider with a good low cross into the six-yard box but Kilduff couldn't force the ball on target. On 56 minutes Ronan Finn picked out the run of McCabe on goal but his shot was weak and Schlingermann made a decent ave.
On 68 minutes a good move ended with Kilduff receiving the ball on the edge of the area and his shot on the turn was on target and only a fine save from Schlingermann denied him a second goal. Gary O'Neill went down under a challenge from Jason McGuinness as he found himself in space behind the defence but the Ref. waved play on. A McCabe shot from the left-hand side of the box needed a save from the Drogs 'keeper on 79 minutes.
The game ended on a high note when a Holohan free-kick into the box saw O'Neill get his head to the ball but Barry Murphy tipped his effort over the bar. Then a shot from McGuigan beat Murphy but crashed off the right-hand post. At the other end substitute Karl Sheppard got on the end of Finn's pass to shoot on goal but Schlingermann got his fingertips to the ball to deny the Hoops number 9.
