Bohemians' Oscar Brennan is eager to put things right in Monday night's game against Waterford after Friday's home defeat against St. Patrick's Athletic.
Following tonight’s narrow 1-0 defeat in the Dublin Derby at home to St. Pat’s, a bitterly disappointed Oscar Brennan spoke of his frustrations at another three points dropped.
“Bitterly disappointed, especially after the Derry game we really felt we could bounce back tonight with some points with another home game. I know it’s early in the season, four games in, but its all about getting points on the board and not letting teams pull away even at this early stage. So it’s really disappointing, because we felt we dominated the first half despite conceding.”
A first half strike from Dean Clarke was enough to grab all three points, following a Keith Ward missed penalty. But the combative midfielder was in typically determined mood, despite the set back. “We are not far away, I know we’re a young team, but we need to take our chances. We need to be more clinical. Again, like the last game, it felt like one chance for them and one goal and we’re chasing the game.
"There are no easy games in the league now that it’s a 10 team division so we need to be the ones getting our noses in front and we will come good, we’ve a talented side.”
Bohs face high-flying Waterford on Monday, who have had a fantastic start to the season, but despite them tough trip, a bullish Brennan see’s the challenge as a positive, "It’s a quick turnaround with the game Monday and I think that’s a good thing. We know it will be a really tough because of their start to the season but I wouldn’t want to sit around for a week and dwell on this.
"I want to get back out and rectify things as quickly as possible.”
