Two first half goals from Dean Clarke and Gary Shaw helped them on their way this evening at Tallaght Stadium
Shamrock Rovers were forced to come from behind tonight to beat 10-man Bohemians 3-1 at Tallaght Stadium this evening.
Keith Buckley's first-half sending off gave Rovers the advantage, but Stephen Bradley's men were made to work for their victory tonight.
Kurtis Byrne put the visitors ahead just minutes after Buckely's dismissal after a lunge on Gavin Brennan. He latched onto the end of a long ball behind the Rovers defence and from distance lifted it over Craig Hyland.
Rovers were level just shortly after, Dean Clarke popping up in the Bohemians box to snatch the equaliser. Before the half was up, the Hoops were ahead. Gary Shaw stole in ahead of his marker to tip the ball past Dean Delaney.
Delaney up to this point was was one of Bohs' star performers and even saved a penalty in the opening minutes of the game from Brandon Miele.
Sean Boyd made sure of the victory in the second half with a stunning one-two finish in front of the Bohs' fans.
