Shamrock Rovers 1 - St Patrick's Athletic 1

St Patrick's Athletic are rueing yet another missed penalty as they came so close to grabbing all three points in this frantic Dublin-derby at Tolka Park.

Shamrock Rovers took an early lead when Sean Francis scored after only 5 minutes.

It seemed that Rovers would take all the points when St Pat's were awarded a penalty with only 5 minutes of the game remaining. Liam Kelly stepped up and calmly scored from the spot.

While the Saints' supporters were still celebrating at the Riverside, Ger McCarthy was brought down and O'Hanlon didn't hesitate in pointing to the spot.

Liam Kelly took the responsibility again but blazed the penalty over the bar.
