DAVE MULCAHY stepped up to grab three points for St Patrick's Athletic in an uneventful Dublin derby clash with Bohemians at Dalymount Park last night.
The midfielder charged down a clearance at the edge of the Bohs penalty area and then burst through to slam the ball under Bohs 'keeper Stephen O'Brien from 15 yards.
Under the guidance of coaches Pat Cleary and Alan Caffrey, this young Bohs side has done remarkably well since the departure of player-manager Gareth Farrelly at the end of August.
But despite their best efforts, they were missing the vital ingredient of luck against a St Pat's side that notched up its third win in succession.
It was the first time the Saints had beaten Bohs this season and it is perhaps a sign that fortune is starting to shine on John McDonnell's side - they certainly enjoyed their fair share of good fortune in last night's largely forgettable encounter.
