Result: Rovers 3 - Saints 2

Experience trumped youthful exuberance in a drama one could not take an eye off in Tallaght, Shamrock Rovers maintaining their lead at the top of the table " just.

Luck was on the Saints' side when they went ahead through Mark Doyle on 28 minutes but they had been excellent in a first half they ruined by the concession of a needless goal at its conclusion, Lee Grace heading home.

Richie Towell had the champions back in front on 68 minutes but a blunder from goalkeeper Leon Pohls allowed substitute Ben McCormack to steal in with six minutes to go and equalise " seemingly earning the away side a point.

Yet Rovers were somehow ahead again on 88 minutes, Towell scoring from the spot after Tom Grivosti had bundled down Johnny Kenny in a breathless conclusion to a cracking game.
