McCaffrey sees it as two points dropped for Drogheda

Gareth McCaffrey celebrates his goal

Drogheda United and Sligo Rovers played out a 1-1 draw in United Park on Friday night, but Drogheda goalscorer Gareth McCaffrey feels that they’ve dropped two points instead of gaining one. 

After last week’s win in Ballybofey the Drogs were hoping to put back-to-back wins together against Gerard Lyttle’s side. However on-loan striker Jonah Ayunga’s header just before half-time secured a point for he Bitored.

McCaffrey said afterwards, “Yeah personally it was great to get on the score sheet again. Overall we are very disappointed. We see it as two points dropped rather than a point gained.”

“I thought we controlled the game for the most part and maybe weren’t as clinical as we should have been in the final third.”

“Stephen McGuinness pulled off a fantastic penalty save at a time when Sligo were gaining some momentum.”

“Looking forward to getting prepared for next week which is another big game for us.”

Drogheda have games coming up against Galway United and St Patrick’s Athletic in the next fortnight as they look to steer clear of any relegation worries.
