Despite a goal from David O'Sullivan to even things up just before half time, we weren't able to equalise again as Shamrock Rovers ran out 2-1 winners. So unable to add to our points tally at Tallaght, we remain rooted to the bottom with Wexford five ahead of us. Again, it was a pretty good Town performance but the hosts were that bit sharper and hungry to consolidate their fourth position in the league. That game ended the second series of games so the runway now comes into view and hopefully it'll turn out to be a smooth landing despite all the turbulence during the long flight. Make sure your seat belts are fastened for the remainder of the flight.
This Friday we travel down to Wexford in what is probably our most important tie of the season. Some are calling it a six pointer but in actual fact, it's an eight pointer because, should the hosts win, they go eight points clear of us. Unthinkable. Should we win down there for only our second win of the season and our second in Wexford, then we're within two points of them. The gulf between the two scenarios is frightening to put it mildly. We have been improving of late but with little real return where it really matters. Wexford were hammered at home last week end and will be all out to avenge that result. Hopefully our will and skill will see us kick start our poor season. We must believe, there's no other option.
The game at home and away certainly has many faces. At home Dundalk are flying so high and taking in millions that they took their eye of the ball to allow Galway defeat them at the week end. But fair play to Stephen Kenny's side, hopefully they can beat the Poles too. The Supporters' Club sent a letter of congratulations to both Stephen and Vinny on behalf of us all. Meanwhile we continue to make a few euro with our Car Boot Sales and cups if tea at one euro.
Please see the website for up to date details re the Fantasy League and prizes on offer. It's a great chance to make a few euro for the club as well as test your knowledge of the game elsewhere and win some prizes for yourself too.
The Supporters' Club would like to extend its sincere sympathies to the families of Seamus Flaherty and Michael Sheridan, both of whom died recently. May they rest in peace.
All the golden oldies appear to get older whatever about more golden....birthday wishes to Kevin Cox, Liam Healion and Paddy Conway.
