Airtricity Premier Division Team of the Week: Healy impresses as Cork extend unbeaten run

The veteran midfielder helped pull the strings for the Leesiders in difficult conditions against Bohemians at Turner's Cross
Cork City held on to top spot in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division thanks to a 1-1 draw with Bohemians. The Leesiders are unbeaten in their first nine games this season, but were made to battle in windy conditions at Turner's Cross. Colin Healy showed all his experience with an excellent display in midfield, with Brian Lenihan once again performing well at the back. Paddy Kavanagh impressed for the visitors, helping them to a point with his solid attacking play.

St Patrick's Athletic are level on points with Cork at the top of the table after putting four unanswered goals past Athlone Town. Chris Fagan scored twice to take his tally for the season to eight goals, while James Chambers impressed in the middle of the park.

Dundalk slipped down to third as they were defeated 1-0 at Bray Wanderers. The Seagulls were inspired to victory by the impressive Ismahil Akinade who controlled the game, while David Webster was central as the home side earned another clean sheet.

Derry City's woes continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by UCD. Students goalkeeper Conor O'Donnell saved Patrick McEleney's penalty and put in a good performance to ensure a share of the spoils for Aaron Callaghan's side.

Eamon Zayed found the net as Shamrock Rovers battled to a 3-2 win over Drogheda United, while Alan Keane and Kieran Djilali were both impressive for Sligo Rovers in a convincing 3-0 victory against Limerick.
