Result: Dundalk 1 - Saints 1

Dundalk remain two points behind Shamrock Rovers at the top of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division table as they were held to a 1-1 draw by St Patrick's Athletic at Oriel Park.

Vinny Perth's side, who also paid tribute to groundsman and cameraman Harry Taaffe, who passed away last weekend, knew they could ill-afford to drop points on the restart having already trailed early pacesetters Shamrock Rovers by three from the opening five games in February and March.

Despite Patrick Hoban's 100th goal for the club giving them a 23rd minute advantage, former Lilywhite Robbie Benson cancelled it out within 80 seconds.



Indeed, it was Stephen O'Donnell's side who looked the most likely winners after that as the champions struggled to get going without their usually vocal home crowd behind them.
