Bohemian FC v Shamrock Rovers

SSE Airtricity League Premier Division  

Dalymount

Friday, May 12th, 2017. Kick off 7:45pm

 

On the Dundalk game:

“We played really well, scored some good goals and deserved the victory. I thought as a team we were excellent, Ronan Finn was different class, he set the tempo for the game but if you look all around the pitch there were good performances. We played that way against Cork and we just didn’t get the rub of the green that day.  We’ve played like that in a lot of our games in patches. The pleasing thing about Dundalk was that we played for 90 minutes like that as a team. We were really good and got the two goals we deserved and ran out comfortable winners in the end. It’s always good mentally for the group to go and beat one of the top teams”.

 

Injuries and suspensions:

“I thought it was a harsh sending off (of Darren Meenan). It’s unfortunate because he played really well and it would have been good for him going into tomorrow night’s game but he’s obviously suspended now. Mikey O’Connor is back in, he’s trained really well and it’s good to have him back around the squad. Hopefully now he can push on and get a run of games and show people what he can do. Ryan Connolly (foot) is making good progress but he’s still a bit away. Paul Corry (knee) is struggling; he pulled out of training during the week. We’ll have to wait and see how he is over the next week to ten days, it’s just unfortunate the way he’s got that knock.”

 

Bohemians game:

“It’s a massive game for us. It’s Bohs, it’s a derby. The lads know how big the game is tomorrow and we’ll be ready to go. We’ve spoken about going and putting a little run together. The next thing we need to look at is putting back-to-back wins together and build from that. Tomorrow is a chance for us to start doing that. There’s no point in doing what we did against Dundalk and then not show up against Bohs so we’ve got to continue that into tomorrow night’s game. We need to make sure that we’re at it, mentally and physically, I think if we do that the result will look after itself.”

 

The fans:

“I’ve said it from day one; the fans have shown great support to us, the players and the staff. You see it on the pitch, you feel that support coming onto the pitch and it can really help you throughout the game. I know they were frustrated with one or two of the games that we lost and that’s totally understandable, but they’ve stayed with us, and again on Friday night they showed up in their numbers and were behind us. We always bring a really big away support to Dalymount so I don’t think it’ll be any different tomorrow. We’ve got to go and repay that support with a performance.”
