In the middle of the half, Cameron McJannet scored two goals in the second half at Dalymount Park to secure all three points against Bohemians for Derry City.
After a 1-0 deficit on a Georgie Kelly penalty the Candystripes intensified the resumption with McJannet’s second goal in the 89th minute and ultimately determined the outcome of the competition.
With this result, Derry can not only maintain the successful start of Ruaidhri Higgins as team manager, but also occupy seventh place in the top table – one place ahead of Bohs.
After a foul by Ciaron Harkin on Ross Tierney sent Kelly a 17th-minute penalty behind Derry netminder Nathan Gartside. While this gave the Gypsies a well-deserved lead, Derry grew into the game.
Nonetheless, the Candystripes were one goal behind them during the break and Higgins introduced Marc Walsh and Joe Thomson just before the hour to give new impetus .
Walsh immediately caused problems for the Bohs back-four and his 63rd-minute shot was turned back by James Talbot. From the next corner, McJannet climbed the highest to go home in fine style.
Substitute Dawson Devoy came close to Bohs, but it looked like both sides would have to settle for some of the booty.
That was until McJannet shot into the net with a Will Patching delivery just under two minutes before the end.
