Defeat to Bohemians soured Harry Kenny’s mood but nine points from a possible 12 is a healthy consolation.
Things also tightened up at the back as Bray Wanderers conceded just one goal in contrast to the six shipped in the previous two outings.
Aaron Greene and Dylan Connolly fired the Seagulls to joint second in the table on Monday evening and Kenny can appreciate that a 75% victory rate is very pleasing.
“Delighted with the three points considering the result last Friday. We didn’t play particularly well again tonight so a bit disappointed with the performance. We started very well in the first half, we go the 2-0 lead but again we’ve conceded from a corner which is disappointing. We struggled on in the second half to get a 2-1 win.
“Delighted with the start considering we had two away games at big enough clubs like Bohs and Pat’s and Drogheda themselves have been going well. Delighted with nine points and we’re up at the right end of the table.
“I’d have taken nine points if you’d asked me at the start of the season. I’d have been very happy with it.
Wanderers already have four players that have registered two league goals or more and it is that kind of attacking prowess that has seen last season’s top scorer, Ger Pender, unable to get a sniff of action thus far this season. But he is not alone.
“To have the firepower that we do both on the wings and up top is great. Aaron got a very good goal tonight and I’m very pleased with the way we’re attacking but we’re just trying to keep them out at the other end – it’s been a problem but there was certainly an improvement tonight. We’re getting there on that front.
“He’s just not in the squad tonight. We’ve a big squad and it’s rotation on the bench.
“It’s a huge challenge for Ger. It’s a challenge for everyone.”
