thumbnail Hello,

Two goals from Dinny Corcoran helped Owen Heary's side advance to the quarter-finals, setting up a last eight clash with Shamrock Rovers

Bohemians recorded a big win in their rescheduled tie with Bray Wanderers in the Leinster Senior Cup Fourth Round, with Dinny Corcoran scoring twice and Steven Beattie and Jason Byrne grabbing debut goals.

After seeing the initial match postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, the fans at Dalymount Park did not have to wait long for Bohs' first competitive goal of the season. Andy Mulligan gave the hosts an early lead with a close-range finish.

Dinny Corcoran extended the Gypsies' lead soon after, with debutant Steven Beattie then netting to show exactly why Owen Heary awarded the 25-year-old a contract for the season. Bray were offered a lifeline just before half-time when they were awarded a penalty, with Jake Kelly making no mistake from the spot.

Bohemians got a penalty of their own midway through the second-half after a foul in the area by Shane Redmond, allowing Dinny Corcoran to double his tally. Before he could get a hat-trick, Corcoran was replaced by former Bray striker Jason Byrne, who marked his Bohemians debut with a goal of his own in stoppage time after good work up front by Beattie.

The Gypsies will now face Shamrock Rovers in the quarter-final at Tallaght Stadium after the Hoops themselves ran out 5-1 winners against Drogheda United.
