James Talbot pulls off a stunning save to deny Chris Forrester a spectacular opener at Richmond Park #rtesoccer pic.twitter.com/WMRgtrEwj1 — Soccer Republic (@SoccRepublic) October 18, 2019 Ciaran Kelly forced Talbot into another save four minutes into the second half as Stephen O'Donnell's home side pushed for a breakthrough. Finnerty then put more pressure on Bohs with a rash tackle on Shaw in the 62nd minute, which saw him booked for a second time. Bohs defender Derek Pender cleared Rhys McCabe's effort off the line as St. Pat's threw everything at the Gypsies, but Long's young team held out for a share of the points. The ecstatic travelling supporters invaded the pitch at full time to celebrate the end of the club's European drought. The Bohs are back in Europe.
