Bohs get their season up and running with defeat of Bray

Dinny Corcoran

Bohemians pulled of the biggest surprise result of the night, when they came from two goals down, to beat big spending Bray Wanderers 3-2 at Dalymount Park.

Bray looked to be in control of the game after goals just after half-time from John ‘The Truck’ Sullivan and flying winger Dylan Connolly had them 2-0 up and seemingly cruising to another three points.

After losing their two previous games, not many would’ve expected Bohs to get anything from the game at that stage.

However, when Dinny Corcoran got on the end of Jamie Doyle’s through-ball to score just minutes later, the fans sensed something big was on.

Corcoran was now involved in everything, as his ball was pounced on by Keith Ward who went on to score through the legs of Peter Cherrie in the Bray goal. That made it all square with twenty minutes left.

It was all Bohs after that, and Jamie Doyle again turned provider for Corcoran on seventy-nine minutes when he played in the striker to score in the corner.

The former UCD and Shelbourne striker Doyle told us, “We were delighted to get the win last night. It was tough going 2-0 down after half time because we had been by far the better team leading up to that.”

“The crowd were excellent and played a huge part in keeping us going. We showed great character and belief, we knew we would get back into the game if we kept been positive and the rewards came off in the end with the win.”

“That’s our season up and running now, we need to keep it going.”

Bohs now head to the Markets Field on Monday to take on Limerick FC with renewed optimism, as their season has now kicked on.
