Result: Saints 0 - Rovers 2
Shamrock Rovers, as their fans might sing, showed why they are champions to silence the locals by the Camac with a 2-0 victory over St Patrick's Athletic.
This Dublin derby was no classic but captivating nonetheless â€" at least until Trevor Clarke's thunderbolt on 69 minutes.
Johnny Kenny had given the Hoops the lead on 20 and, while Pat's were pressing hard for an equaliser for most of the game, any complaints of theirs would reasonably meet deaf ears.
Rovers know how to win games like this and it is to their credit that they have gone from a ropey start to looking favourites to retain their crown in a handful of weeks.
