Bohemians grabbed all three points on offer after beating Finn Harps 2-0 in Dalymount Park last night. The result became even more vital for Keith Long’s men following other results from around the country.
With Galway United’s victory over Dundalk along with draws for both St Patrick’s Athletic and Sligo Rovers, the win over Harps keeps Bohs three points ahead of the relegation spots.
An own goal from Damien McNulty followed by a peach from Oscar Brennan won it for the Gypsies. Finn Harps had Barry Molloy sent off just before the hour mark after two yellow cards.
Oscar Brennan was thrilled with the win after some disappointing results of late. He said, “Delighted to get back to winning ways tonight and to pick up three points. It’s been a disappointing last few weeks so it was brilliant to get a clean sheet as well.”
“On a personal note I’m obviously happy with the goal, but I’m just delighted to pick up the three points tonight going into a tough game against Derry next week.”
“The fans have been brilliant during a dissapointing April so it was nice to give them something to cheer about last night.”
“Hopefully we can bring the performance into training this week and pick up a result in Buncrana next Friday.”
On-loan Dundalk midfielder Georgie Poynton said, “Last night I felt like we started well. We passed the ball well in parts, won seconds balls and battled hard and that ultimately won us the game.”
“Harps going down to ten men probably made it harder for us, as i felt we didn’t pass the ball as well as we were with harps having 11.”
“However it’s a brilliant three points and now we’re really looking forward to the Derry game.”
We asked him how he was enjoying his time at the club, and he said, “Yeah I’m really enjoying my time at Bohs, it’s been brilliant so far. We’ve a great group and all the lads have been excellent, we just need to try to keep turning performances into results and we’ll be alright.”
