Lyttle glad to come away with a point from Bray 


Sligo Rovers twice game from behind to earn a point in a 2-2 draw with Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds. Defender Michael Leahy scored in each half for Gerard Lyttle’s side.

Lyttle was pleased to come away with a point, and told theleagueofireland.com “Yes it’s a great point for us. The Carlisle Grounds hasn’t been a great hunting ground in the past few games for us. We got beat 4-0 twice so there’s a improvement.”

“In the first half we played just okay, which wasn’t good enough, and Bray picked us off with some clever movement.”

“In the second half we started sharper, worked harder, moved the ball a lot quicker and deserved our goal and maybe could’ve got the winner.”

“I’m pleased that we have scored from another set play, that’s 5 so far since I’ve taken over. We are a real threat from them and will continue to work on the training pitch practicing them.”

The bit o’red boss was delighted for 2-goal hero Leahy, “Mick’s second goal was great play from start to finish, with him continuing his run into box which he showed great desire to do so. Delighted for Mick he’s a great lad and again wants to do his best for the team.”

We asked Lyttle about yesterdays signing Seamus Sharkey and what he’ll bring to his side. He said, “Sharkey we signed because he was a free agent and will give us good cover in the squad at centre back. He’s been with us for couple of weeks and has impressed with his ability and had work. He comes with some experience playing in our league.”

Regarding Kieran Sadlier’s future, after the striker has been linked with a move back to the UK, Lyttle wasn’t giving anything away saying, “Sadlier is a special player who will be linked with many top teams. The good thing for us is that he’s our player until his contract is over, which is at the end of the season.”
