BOHEMIANS’ spectacular capitulation at the hands of Galway United last night has handed Shamrock Rovers a title lifeline going into the final round of matches next weekend.
Rovers’ collapse in the final stretch of the league season allowed their great rivals Bohs to overtake them into top spot, helped by their 1-0 victory in the recent O’Classic.
Pat Fenlon’s side looked certain to retain the title with the final games against Galway and Dundalk allowing the Gypsies to see out the season and compound Rovers’ misery.
However, last night, a depleted Galway United side turned all on its head by stunning the Dalymount outfit with a last-gasp 3-2 win. Shamrock Rovers beat Drogheda 2-0 in Tallaght and suddenly they go into the last weekend of the season back at the summit following a night of high drama.
Seemingly dead and buried, the Hoops’ title dreams are alive once more.
