Brando keeps Hoops Cup hopes alive with equaliser at Oriel

Brandon Miele’s superb equaliser kept Rovers dreams of cup glory alive in their impressive one all draw with Dundalk yesterday.

A great second half performance from The Hoops means it’s all back to Tallaght tomorrow week for the replay to decide who will face Cork City in the FAI Cup final.

The hosts had started the game really well and when Robbie Benson gave them the lead within the opening 10 minutes many among the mass ranks of travelling Rovers fans must have feared the worst.

Having weathered the first half storm though, The Hoops were the better side after the break and Dundalk’s Hoare had to make a good sliding tackle to stop Trevor Clarke from having a clear run on goal.

Gary Shaw had a great chance a couple of minutes later but he blazed his shot over the bar.
