Galway United boss Shane Keegan was extremely dissapointed following his sides 1-0 defeat to Drogheda United in his first match as manager of the club. It doesn’t get any easier this weekend as the tribesmen head south to take on many people’s choice as Premier Division champions, Cork City.
Before Friday’s game, United suffered a blow after Paul Sinnott was ruled out for up to three weeks after sustaining an ankle injury in training.
Keegan speaking on the club’s website said, “After the Drogheda game, there were two key areas for improvement. One was finishing, we could’ve had the game out of sight by half time had we been a bit more clinical in the first half.”
“Our second half performance wasn’t anywhere near as good as our first half showing.”
“A big focus for us now is can we get to half time in good stead again but this time, how do we put the focus on trying to up our second half performance. Our second half performances have been quite good in pre-season.”
“Cork City is a tasty game, not many people outside of ourselves will be expecting us to take anything from the game, but we have a quiet confidence that we do have the players and game plan to get a result at Turners Cross.”
It’s a massive game for Keegan’s charges, two defeats in two games would leave them with a mountain to climb so early in the season.
