    Good win for City away to Bohs last night, 0-1

    Waterford also made a statement with a 3 - nil win away at St. Pats. Saints had challenged legality of Waterford’s place in the Europa League and got in instead
    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

      City beat UCD 2-0 tonight and climbed, however temporarily, to seventh in the table, 15 points behind Dundalk who went top, beating Bohs 2-0.

      City were livelier at the start than in recent games.

      The opening goal was a scrambled affair. A free on the City right sent into the box, wasn't cleared and Shepperd put it in after a bit of Pinball.

      1-0 at HT and College put City under a bit of pressure, at the start of the second half. They forced two or three corners, for which City brought everyone back, and hit the bar from oneof them.

      Just as the writer thought College were going to equalise, City went up the left, the ball was crossed low and Cummins scored at the front post.

      There wasn't much excitement after that.

      College play a nice passing game but have no real "end product". They have only scored 13 goals from 16 games. ( Mind, City have only scored 15 from 16 themselves)

      "The Dundalk" are in the Cross this night week. That will tell a lot.
