Dundalk got their seventh league win of the season at Oriel Park tonight courtesy of a 2-0 win over Bohemian

David McMillan's fifth goal in as many matches put Stephen Kenny's side ahead on nine-minutes, with the striker nodding an inch-perfect delivery from Patrick McEleney into the bottom corner.

And, although chances fell for the lively Michael Duffy and McEleney prior to half-time, that was how it was to remain at the interval despite the visitor's threat in front of goal becoming more apparent as the first-45 neared to a close.

However, Duffy effectively ended the contest on 66 minutes when he fired a vicious low drive to the bottom corner of the net from 20 yards.

2-0 was how it ended. Dundalk get back to winning ways...
