The reigning champions' winning streak came to a juddering halt in Inchicore due to a virtuoso performance from Killian Brennan
LEAGUE OF IRELAND PLAYER OF THE WEEK
KILLIAN BRENNAN| ST PATRICK'S ATHLETIC
The 29-year-old was composed in the Saints' midfield and alongside Greg Bolger and John Russell, allowed the Bit o'Red little time on the ball in the middle of the park. Acting as a crucial creative outlet for Liam Buckley's side throughout the tie, Brennan was the architect of numerous St Pat's attacks and the midfielder came close to scoring when he tested Gary Rogers with a superb volley in the second half.
However, it was his deftly-taken penalty in the closing stages of the encounter for which he will be remembered in this game. After Evan McMillan fouled Conan Byrne in the box, Brennan nonchalantly stepped up and mischievously chipped the ball into the back of the net past a despairing Rogers.
