Sligo Rovers manager Gerard Lyttle has great faith in his players that they can themselves get out of trouble and remain a Premier Division club next season. 

His side came back from the Markets Field on Saturday night with a point after a battling 0-0 draw with Limerick. That point wasn’t enough to lift them out of the relegation zone, bit it keeps them just one behind St Patrick’s Athletic.

It’s going to be a real dogfight to stay up for up to six clubs, including Limerick and Bohemians.

Lyttle thought it was a good point for his side, “Yeah I think was a good point. Ideally we wanted three but it wasn’t to be.”

“We played well and worked hard. We kept a clean sheet which is positive.”

Raffaele Cretaro was red-carded late on for a rugby-style tackle, however the Sligo boss thought it was at best a yellow card, “Raf’s sending of in my opinion was harsh. At best it was a yellow card. Again poor decisions are killing us. As I said before, regardless of the opposition every game is tough.”

“Our focus, as always, is on us and no one else. We have believe in the squad. We will be a hard team to beat and from that we will build and look to win games.”

When asked about further additions to the bit o’red squad during their transfer window lyttle told us, “In terms of recruitment let’s wait and see what this week brings. I can assure you we have been working tirelessly trying to attract the right players to our club.”
