Manager's Comment

“I thought Friday night's semi-final (between Bohemians & Sligo Rovers) was a hard act to follow but whereas that game was a bit one sided our game against Rovers was more evenly balanced.

As the home side there will now be a bit more expectation and pressure on ourselves.

I thought yesterday we played well especially after the first half hour and if we can play as we did in the second half then we've every chance of making it through” - Pete Mahon, Manager .
