Limerick defender Tony Whitehead says “Confidence is high, and it’s all positive” after the Shannonsiders came away from Maginn Park with a share of the spoils after a 1-1 draw with Derry City last night. 

“I think going away to Derry and getting a point is always a positive result. It’s a little bit disappointing that we couldn’t see it out and get the three points, but looking at the positives we’re unbeaten in four games now going into the Shamrock Rovers game on Friday and confidence is high in the group.”

We asked him how things were going for him at the club, “Personally for me this season I’ve obviously been delighted to play as often as I have done. I’ve been patient for a couple of years and I’m just hoping my performances every week can keep me in the team. I’m still learning the game at 21 and that’s helped with players like Shaun Kelly and Robbie Williams beside me and Brendan Clarke/ Freddy Hall behind me, and the ideas of Willie Boland, Joe Gamble, Tommy Barrett and Eddie Hickey have really helped me improve.”

And on the season so far Whitehead said, “For our season so far I think it’s nothing but positive. I think people sometimes forget we’ve just been promoted so to be 4th at this stage of the season is huge. I think we’ve the second best defensive record in the league at the moment so that’s nice too. As I said earlier confidence in the group is high and we’re just taking it game by game and our attention turns to Rovers on Friday now.”
