Osebi strike grabs away day point

Two moments of individual brilliance in the last 20 minutes saved the Rams from a defeat in a dark, dour, ill-tempered match.  The psychological boost of avoiding defeat will be greater than the point, important as that is.

Rams through to Cup semis

Apart from the result and some much needed game time, the most significant outcome from a cold and gloomy night could well be the emergence of new signing Donal McDermott, who only joined the club on the afternoon of the match.
