Rónán MacNamara reports from Dalymount Park

Cameron McJannet’s double saw Derry City continue their good start to life under new manager Ruaidhri Higgins as they saw off Bohemians 2-1 at Dalymount Park.

Georgie Kelly had given the home side an early lead from the penalty spot, but defender McJannett netted twice in the second half to earn the Candystripes the three points.

The victory lifts City above Bohs in the table and condemns Keith Long’s side to three consecutive defeats as they still await that elusive home win.

The opening goal came from the penalty spot after Ross Tierney was clumsily taken down by Ciaron Harkin, Derry having been hesitant in clearing Keith Ward’s delivery.

Kelly stepped up from 12 yards and dispatched the spot-kick, his third goal since making the move from Dundalk in the off-season.

Ali Coote, Keith Buckley and Ward dictated proceedings but were unable to create any clear-cut opportunities.

James Akintunde almost brought Derry level against the run of play. Will Patching’s free kick found the winger unmarked but he hit the bar from ten yards with a header.

Bohs might have made it 2-0 when Andy Lyons was played in behind by Ward but Nathan Gartside saved easily.

Gartside pulled off an incredible save to claw away Tierney’s effort from inside the box after he met Lyons’ pullback.

James Talbot pulled off a big save just after the hour to prevent Marc Walsh from making an instant impact off the bench, saving with his feet to divert for a corner.

McJannet headed home the Derry equaliser after Patching delivered a corner on the money. Talbot failed to keep it out and might feel he should have done better.

Ruaidhrí Higgins’ charges took control of the game and threatened a second goal. Daniel Lafferty nearly turned the game on its head but his header from close range was too close to Talbot.

Bohs pushed for a winner late on as Ciaran Kelly and substitute Dawson Devoy spurned opportunities.

McJannet was the hero again for the Candystripes as he found himself unmarked in the box to cushion home Patching’s long free kick to steal the game with a minute of normal time remaining.
