A clever through ball by Kevin Nolan put Ellis through and Shane Byrne in attempting to intercept fouled.  

John Ryan, persuaded out of retirement by the Dines, faced Ellis for the spot kick but was unable to keep out the top scorer in the League.

To their credit, both sides went for the winner but it was the visitors who got the crucial score.
