Bohemians cruised into the quarter-finals of this season’s Enda McGuill Cup after a 5-1 win over Dublin rivals Cabinteely. Centre-back John Ross Wilson scored twice from set-pieces, while Jamie Wilson, Brandon Kavanagh and Craig O’Connor sealed the win for the gypsies. 

Bohs boss Graham Lawlor, “Cabinteely came with a game plan of sitting deep and to try frustrate us and in the first half it worked for them.”

“In the second half we missed some chances and also gave away a goal we should have prevented.”

“For the Bohs players the key was being patient when in possession. At half time the introduction of Brandon Kavanagh and a slight change to our attacking formation forced Cabinteely out into areas leaving us space to create.”

“John Ross Wilson once again showed how effective he is at set plays by scoring twice and his centre-back partner Jamie Wilson also notched one which was pleasing. Brandon Kavanagh and Craig O’Connor also scored to compliment a good performance.”

“Before the game we added Danny Grant and Joe Breen to the squad. On his debut Danny did everything except score and should prove a great addition to Bohs. Joe is waiting on international clearance, but will add experience to the group after spending 2 years away in Carlisle United.”

Cabinteely’s John Paul Kelly said, “Not a great result for us. The lads have worked very hard over the last few weeks and we will get back training and look forward to the next match.”

“Disappointing that we were missing players away on holidays and injuries but can’t take anything away from Bohs, as it was a fair result and they deserved their win.”
I thought we did well in the 1st half as we kept organised and worked well.”

“The second half was a different ball game after conceding two goals so quick into the second half but we still had chances to get back into the game. And the best of luck to Bohs in the next round of the cup.”
