21st May 2014 – SSE Airtricity League – Bohemians 0 Sligo Rovers 2 (McMillan, North 2)

 

Late goals from Evan McMillan and Danny North maintained Sligo Rovers’ unbeaten run as Bohemians sunk to a third defeat on the spin.

Former Bohemians central defender McMillan struck to give Rovers the lead after 78 minutes, nodding home at the back post after Bohs keeper Lee Murphy failed to claim Kieran Djilali’s corner.

Substitute North then sealed the points three minutes into added time, pouncing on a mistake by Roberto Lopes, who failed to clear Sean Maguire’s cross, to score with a side-foot volley.

Jason Byrne could have got a goal back for Bohemians at the death but his penalty, following a handball by John Russell, was easily saved by Gary Rogers.

Rovers: Gary Rogers; Alan Keane, Evan McMillan, Jeff Henderson, Ross Gaynor (John Russell), Kieran Djalili, David Cawley, Paul O’Conor (Danny North), Danny Ledwith; Joseph Ndo (Sean Maguire), Aaron Greene.

Peers opened the scoring on 16 minutes when he rose well to meet a Kieran Djilali corner and head home at the near post.

Following a Bohemians attack, David McMillan broke quickly up the left and fed Aaron Greene who slotted home clinically from just inside the box.
