Stephen Bradley gave us the squad update in advance of Friday’s game away v Limerick, 7.45pm kick off.
“I thought we played really well [against Bray]. We moved them around and in the end wore them down. We knew it would take time for them to open up when they went down to ten men. But we felt that once we scored the second goal it would open up and that’s what happened.
Two good goals by Sam Bone and Dave McAllister so I was happy with those two. I thought Sam’s was a really good strike technically the way he cut across the ball on the outside of his foot. Brandon Kavanagh was excellent on his home league debut. He played with a good tempo and made things happen. Joey O’Brien can play in a number of positions, full-back, centre-back or centre-midfield. He’s comfortable in all of them so he was very good last week.
I decided early in the week to play Gavin Bazunu. I just felt he deserved it. He’s ready, he’s worked hard and it was time to play him. He had to make two or three saves, I know they were long distance but he did well. You don’t know what sort of game it’s going to be when you pick him, the way they get a red card. We were confident that whatever game it would be he would be ready. As for Limerick, we’ll look at the team for that and do what we think is best.
We got a good win down there earlier in the season and we’ll be looking to do the same again. The way the games are going it would be good to get the three points and it could be a big win for us. It would set us up nicely for when we come back after the break. It’s Graham Burke’s last game for us and it would be a good send off for him too. If we just keep doing what we’re doing and be more clinical at both ends we’ll be fine. Ronan Finn is back in contention but we’ll probably wait until after the break for Brandon Miele.”
