The goals flowed in at both ends at the Carlisle Grounds and that left a sour taste in Harry Kenny’s mouth despite his side picking up a second consecutive victory.
Bray Wanderers’ boss witnessed his side rampage five goals but also leak three against Finn Harps and it is the latter which ensured that it was muted celebrations for the former defender.
His new signings continued to prove themselves worthwhile as McCabe (2) and Flood scored again, whilst Aaron Greene got off the mark against Ollie Horgan’s outfit. The form of McCabe and Flood has particularly pleased Kenny.
“We’ve Gary pulling the strings in that no.10 role and Anto has started very well. Happy with us going forward.
“I want to play Gary in that no.10 role in behind the centre forward and he does create a lot. He’s very good on the ball and he creates a lot. If we can get the ball to him, he’ll either create or score goals for us.
“I was a bit worried about his (Flood’s) fitness in pre-season but he’s worked really hard and he’s got his head down and he’s getting the goals which is great.”
The rollercoaster victory over the Co Donegal side saw the Co Wicklow club record their best start to a season since 2011 but Kenny fears that it will not last if things are tightened up at the back. His side have conceded four goals in two games and face a trip to Dalymount Park next.
“It’s a brilliant start. We’ve got plenty of goals for but we’ve conceded too many for my liking. We’ll put that right because we’re good going forward so if we can stop as many goals going in, we’ll be okay.”
