25/06/07 - Bohs 1 - 0 Waterford Utd

This game was moved to the Monday night to allow Setanta Sports to show it live. For once I wasn't too disappointed about this either as the combination of a wet and windy night and a heavy cold meant that I didn't make it anywhere near Dalymount Park. As it turned out the game proved to be just as miserable as the weather, however, a Darren Mansaram strike just before half-time ensured that Bohs grabbed all three points.

It was the first time I'd watched Bohs play on television and I have to say I was reasonably impressed by the Setanta coverage. Usually when I have watched highlights of the Eircom League on other channels such as TV3 it has been a case of one camera, no close-ups and limited action replays. Setanta at least seemed to take a far more professional approach with several camera positions making for some decent viewing.

However, as good as the coverage may have been the experience of sitting on the sofa watching the match still paled in comparison with actually being at the game. Still, the main thing was that Bohs had picked up the three points and were still in touch at the top of the table.
