Dundalk head to the capital tomorrow night to take on a St Patrick’s Athletic side reeling from a 3-1 feat to Finn Harps on Monday night.
Liam Buckley will be looking for a big response from his players, and there’s no better way to bounce back than to beat the champions in your own back yard.
Dundalk goalkeeper Gary Rogers felt frustrated after Tuesday night’s 0-0 draw with Derry City. He told dundalkfc.com “It was disappointing not to win on Tuesday night. I felt we had chances to go and win the game but having said that we didn’t create anything clear cut on the night which frustrated us.”
“Playing at home we want to pick up as maximum points every week and we didn’t do that on Tuesday. We were disappointed not to win after taking the game to Derry. We have been good at home this year, we have won almost all at home so that is disappointing.”
“We have been scoring in the last few weeks and that was our third clean sheet in a row which was a positive but we need to find the net. We scored three and four in the games previous so not scoring was frustrating.”
“We have got quality all through the team and need to kick on now over the next few weeks and take as many points as we can before we head into the busy summer.”
On tomorrow night’s encounter with St Patrick’s Athletic Rogers said, “It’s important that we pick up a win on Friday night. We beat St. Patrick’s Athletic earlier in the season at Oriel but it’s going to be a difficult game up in Richmond on Friday.”
“We have to go to Inchicore and get an important win. We have improved over the last few weeks, you can see that and we have to pick things up again tomorrow and get back to winning.”
