A 35th-minute goal by Ciaran Kilduff proved crucial as St Patrick's Athletic accounted for Dublin rivals Bohemians 1-0 in their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division encounter at Dalymount Park.
Kilduff handed the Saints a deserved lead ten minutes before the break, pouncing from close range for his first goal of the season after Dean Delany had saved from Conan Byrne.
That lead should have been doubled in the 70th minute but Dean Delany denied Killian Brennan from the penalty spot and the Saints held on despite some incessant late pressure from Bohs.
