Sligo were dealt a blow in the fifth minute when Paddy Kirk had to go off injured. They won three corners in the opening 10 minutes but they came to nothing. In the 11th minute, Liam Burt cut inside and hit an excellent shot that just narrowly went over the bar.
Ethon Varian went off injured for Bohs in the 19th minute. Bohs keeper Tadhg Ryan pulled off a save to deny Aidan Keena in the 32nd minute. Minutes later Ryan once again denied Keena as Sligo pressed.
The deadlock was broken in the 45th minute when the ball hit off Sligo defender Clancy. Just before the half-time whistle, Sligo had a chance but Frank Liivak headed over from close range.
In the 49th minute, Feely put Bohs 2-0 up. Minutes later Max Mata hit the crossbar with his effort as the visitors tried to get back into the game. In the 58th minute, Adam McDonnell hit a free that was well held by Ryan.
