“Wexford’s morale is very high” says boss Locke

Wexford gained a point after a 1-1 draw with Cabinteely in Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night, after Mark Slater’s first goal of the season, against his former club, cancelled out Kevin Knight’s opener. 

It was a good point for the home side, but manager Damian Locke thought his side were the more threatening of the two.

He said, “It was important for us to get a result on Friday night, but it was a game that both teams just cancelled each other out for majority of the game. We certainly carried more of a threat and their goal keeper done really well on a few occasions.”

When asked about the morale at the club despite no league wins this season Locke said, “Morale in the group is getting better by the week. We’ve had three or four games on the bounce now where we could’ve put more points on the board. We are aware it’s just important for us to concentrate on the performances and we look forward to upcoming games.”

We asked if he felt any pressure, and he said, “Absolutely no pressure on us from outside our own dressing room. We have a big project in the club and it’s obvious to see our objective is to produce players for the coming years, with 17 year old Danny Doyle impressing on his full debut last night.”
