Bohemians have released a statement expressing their disappointment after crowd disturbances during tonight's derby against Shamrock Rovers at Dalymount Park.

There were flashpoints between a small set of supporters from both sides near the end housing the Rovers fans sparked by what appeared to be an individual from the home stand running at them following the fourth goal, resulting in Gardai massing there behind the goal until after the full-time whistle to prevent further trouble.

 

"Bohemian FC wishes to express our disappointment with the small minority in attendance who were responsible for causing crowd disturbances which interrupted tonight's game against Shamrock Rovers at Dalymount Park.

"The club will work closely with stewards and An Garda Síochána to identify the individuals responsible," said the club.
