Galway United came from a goal down to rescue a badly needed point against St Patrick’s Athletic at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday evening.
Manager Shane Keegan was left frustrated after the game, blaming more defensive errors, but was pleased with the attitude of his players in coming back to get a point.
One of United’s star players this season is centre-back Lee Grace. Grace followed his coach Keegan from Wexford Youths last season by upping sticks and heading West.
He was disappointed with conceding a goal after controlling the game, “Yeah we went out to win the game from the start and thought we we had everything under control, but just got caught out on a set piece.”
“Second half I thought we did more than enough to get a win let alone a draw, but just need to be a bit more clinical. We’re happy to get something out of the game as we showed great character to keep plugging away until the goal came.”
Here’s Ronan Murray’s late penalty to secure a point against St Patrick’s Athletic;
Grace is happy with the way things are going for him at the club, but knows an improvement is required, “Yeah I’m actually loving it even though things haven’t quite gone our way, but I’m enjoying full-time football for the first time, and we have a great bunch of lads here, including the coaching staff and everyone involved.”
“Our results aren’t a good reflection on how we are playing because we have played really well, but we just need to cut out the mistakes and the results will follow.”
“Also Galway is a lovely city to live in so I’ve settled really well and have no complaints at the moment.”
