Graham Burke went from hero to villain for Shamrock Rovers as he scored, and then was sent off for violent conduct, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by St Patrick's Athletic in Tallaght Stadium.
The former Aston Villa striker had opened the scoring for the Hoops early in the first half before Christy Fagan equalised in spectacular fashion ten minutes after the break.
Both teams had chances to win the game but Rovers sacrificed any chance of climbing above Bray Wanderers into third when Burke was dismissed for a mindless kick on former Hoop Pat Cregg.
