Johnny Dunleavy was on the scoresheet again last night as Cork City moved their unbeaten run out to 16 games with a 4-1 thumping of Shamrock Rovers at Turners Cross.
Ballybofey man Dunleavy headed home a late goal as John Caulfield’s side continued their magnificent start to the season.
Dunleavy, who is the Cork City captain, also scored a late goal last month in the 2-1 win over Bray Wanderers.
Dunleavy missed a large chunk of last season through injury and missed the Rebels’ FAI Cup final win over Dundalk, but is back to full fitness again and last night bagged a second goal of the season as Cork maintained a 15-point lead on champions Dundalk at the summit.[adrotate group=”91″]
