McJannett strikes late


1 2

Centre- half Cameron McJannet claimed a brace of second half goals at Dalymount Park to give Derry City all three points against Bohemians in an entertaini­ng Premier Division clash.

Trailing 1- 0 at the break through a Georgie Kelly penalty, the Candystrip­es dug deep on the resumption with McJannet’s second on 89 minutes ultimately determinin­g the outcome of the contest.

When referee Ben Connolly pointed t o t he spot i n t he 17th- minute – following a foul by Ciaron Harkin on Ross Tierney – former Derry City youth star Kelly stepped up to the mark.

He fired clinically beyond the reach of Nathan Gartside to give the Gypsies a deserved l ead. Derry grew i nto t he game as it progressed, however, and eventually drew level on 63 minutes.

James Talbot turned behind a Marc Walsh strike, but was powerless to stop McJannet heading home from the ensuing corner. It looked like both sides would be forced to settle for a share of the spoils, until McJannet struck to the net off a Will Patching delivery with just under two minutes remaining.
