Waterford United picked up a hugely important point in their home game against Bohemians tonight but that's not what will grab the headlines. The game kicked off after a thirty minute delay following a row over Bohemians playing kit.

After eventually taking to the field in Waterford´s away kit, Bohs couldn't build on good recent form as Waterford picked up a point many would not have expected.

When the game started Glen Crowe missed the best chance of the first half when he failed to hit the target from close range. Ryan McCann had earlier forced a save from Packie Holden with a tame shot.

Jason McGuinness denied Paul McCarthy with a last gasp tackle as the Waterford man threatened to break in on goal.

In the second half Waterford had a couple of chances but failed to capitalize. Vinny Sullivan went close a couple of times before Dessie Byrne made a vital block to deny Dave Mulcahy.

However, it's likely to be the issue of why the game was delayed and following Bray's recent troubles in Cork, it's still a surprise that the League of Ireland themselves do not specify which kits clubs are supposed to wear in specific games.

Waterford United : Holden, Flynn, Hedderman, Brosnan, Breen, D Mulcahy, Scully, McCarthy, Bermingham, Sullivan, Warren.
Bohemians : Blayney, O Heary, Byrne (Singh 82), Burns, McGuinness, Hunt, Richardson, McCann, O'Donnell (Kelly 65), Fenn (Turner 13), Crowe.
