Bohemians will have to pick them selves up after a loss at home to Waterford in the Airtricity League Premier Division tonight.

In John Sheridan’s last game as manager, Waterford were the sharper side in Dalymount Park, with Ali Coote opening the scoring in the 24th minute.

The visitors continued to pile on the pressure, with Tyreke Wilson netting just before the half-time whistle.

Despite their efforts, Bohs could not manage to claw back the deficit with the Blues departing with some much needed points.

After the match, the team thanked Sheridan for his service, wishing him all the best in his new role with Wigan Athletic.

In contrast to the earlier game, the visitors to Oriel Park face a disappointing journey home despite a good first-half comeback in the late kick-off at Oriel Park.

Dundalk’s Michael Duffy got the game off to an exciting start, scoring the opener within five minutes of the start, followed quickly by a score from Brian Gartland to give the home side the dream start.

However, Shelbourne settled in, with Dan Byrne heading their first goal in the 21st minute.

A goal from Georgie Poynton, after a penalty was awarded for Gartland’s drag on Ciarán Kilduff, put Shels right back in contention at the half time break.

The only goal of the second half came from Greg Sloggett in the 59th minute, getting Filipo Giovagnoli’s tenure off to a flying start.
