Forward Graham Burke scored a wonder goal in Shamrock Rovers' 2-0 victory over Derry City in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division last night.

Rory Gaffney's close-range strike gave Rovers the lead in the 34th minute.

That was followed up with a stunning effort from Republic of Ireland international Burke.

Spotting Derry goalkeeper Nathan Gartside off his line, Burke didn't hesistate as he lobbed him from the halfway line.

The win moves Stephen Bradley's side into third place in the League of Ireland Premier Division.

Meanwhile, Derry are rooted to the bottom of the table after a poor start.
