The Eir Sport cameras will be in United Park tomorrow night for Drogheda United against Cork City, in a game not many would have thought would be a top of the table fixture, so kudos to them. Pete Mahon’s men will look to put a dent in Cork’s ambitions in front of what will be a huge crowd.
Two games played, two wins, three goals scored and none conceded has made Pete Mahon a very happy man. Speaking on the club’s website he said, “It’s been very rewarding to have two clean sheets from two games. We conceded far too many goals for my liking last season and it’s great to see progress in the team. It’s brilliant for Stephen McGuinness in goal but it’s all about our organisation as a team.”
“We play an attacking brand of football but it’s all about finding the right balance.”
“I’m really looking forward to the game. I think it’ll be a great barometer for us to see what level we are at. Cork may have higher profile players who have won more but we have a young and hungry squad who are eager to prove themselves.”
“We’ll be treating this game like any other, there’s no such thing as a free hit this season with three teams going down. I’ve been reminding the players that we won both games in 2015 before being relegated so there is no doubt that we’ll be keeping our feet on the ground.”
“I hope the fans come out in force for us again. I thought they were fantastic last week and hopefully with better weather conditions, we’ll have even more backing on Friday. Winning our home games is the secret to a successful season so hopefully our fans can give us the boost to get the win.”
