Result: Saints 2 - Rovers 1

Alex Nolan's first goal for St Patrick's Athletic proved a welcome winner to deliver a first victory over Shamrock Rovers in two years at a raucous Richmond Park.

Jon Daly's Saints had to come from behind to do so against the champions, whom they had not beaten in their previous eight encounters.

St Pat's had been second best in a first half that saw Rovers troop off reasonable value for Darragh Nugent's early lead goal.

But they stormed back into the game in the second half, scoring twice inside as many minutes. Captain Joe Redmond headed them level before Nolan's winner, which moves St Pat's up to third place in the table.
