    There was mention I think of there been limitations to Greene as a striker earlier in this thread, though he is a nice player I felt the same when he was with us and unless ye sign in the window we might have a squeak and the same for Pat's.

    Bolger brilliant again. Still think he's the best in the league in that role and has been for a good 8 or 9 years. Would have loved to have him back.

    Bolger and Buckley have been absolutely superb for us this season. Great win. Shams were certainly there to be beaten tonight with so many missing but we still had to do it. Cagey enough game and thankfully Romeo took the chance when it came his way.

    Hoare, Finn & Watts missing has a bigger effect than previously thought, and Sligo deserve to be top based on tonight's performance. Burke has a negative influence on the way Rovers play imo, so hopefully Towell coming in will have a restorative effect on the team. I'm still hopefull that Rovers will ultimately win the league, but I don't see us doing much in Europe this season, if I'm honest.

    Still think that Rovers are nailed on for the title. I have my doubts about progress in Europe myself. It will be interesting how all our teams get on. Who is in the Uefa conference ?

    Certainly a big one for Bohs to get a bit of breathing room from the bottom half.

    Well done to Sligo - they were more than worthy of the three points and deserve to be top. We need the break badly.

    Our results have covered up that we've been full of nearlies all season. I'd like to see what our actual hit rate is for shots on target because a lot of games we seem to be bashing shots wide from distance so it looks like we're making loads of chances, but we're not making good chances.

    Rovers should be walking the league and possibly will but they have a clown of a manager

    Hard to disagree with that. If we were looking to balance it out, Mountney's corner for the first goal was taken from outside the quadrant.

    We're having awful difficulty in keeping clean sheets, so to concede two and still come away with a point, we'll take it.

    Very entertaining game of football, lots of open play and good finishes for the last two goals.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    That's with Dinny getting barely any minutes as well and to be fair to him the times he has played he has looked good think he has 1 or 2 goals. We've recruited seriously well and there were many question marks over the Deegan and O Reilly signings after their season with Shels. Just goes to show how varying environments have an impact on players performances. Not many in the league have been better than those two this season.

    Disagree- Burke sums us up , near miss last night , hit post against Duns; or Greene and Scales sitters also on Friday or Gaffney free header last minute away to Sligo to win it...IMO our finishing has being awful this year
