Derry City 3 Bohemians 1

Late goals from Ciaran Martyn and Mark Farren saw Derry come from behind agianst 10-man Bohs in a real thriller at the Brandywell tonight.

Despite losing defender Stephen Rice after just eight minutes, Bohs took the lead ten minutes later.

Fergal Harkin shot against a post and his second effort was deflected into his own net off Barry Molloy.

Derry responded on 34 minutes when Aidan Collins pulled down Killian Brennan and Peter Hutton scored from the resultant penalty.

The turning point came when Bohs’ defender Ken Oman was sent off on 55 minutes for a foul on Martyn, his second booking.

Martyn then shot Derry in front on 81 minutes before Farren scored his fourth goal in three games, his 12th of the season, to seal the win in stoppage time.
