Following an extremely hard-fought away win at Bohemians, which saw his side snatch an 88th minute winner through a Ciaran Kilduff header, Stephen Kenny spoke of his pride at this side not giving up and playing until the last minute.
On the performance as a whole the Dundalk boss praised Bohs game plan and also a key performer for the home side, “We weren’t at our best tonight, since the break we’ve been flying and scoring a lot of goals but found it tough tonight.
"Bohs had a good game plan, keeping it compact in the midfield and young (Fuad) Sule in the midfield was very energetic, strong and quick around the park. He picked up a lot of second balls too.”
Speaking proudly of his own sides display, he continued: “We seemed a bit lethargic I feel at the start. Our passing wasn’t accurate even careless at times.
"Before the break or earlier in the season these are the types of games we have concede in, but at the moment we don’t look like conceding a goal at the moment. Getting late goals has become a characteristic of the team the last couple of years and its important to retain that.
"What’s been really key for us is we have most of our injured players back and with what’s coming up we need everyone fit.”
Gearing up for a massive European game against Rosenborg in the Champions League Qualifier next week, Kenny added: “We’re really looking forward to it, very excited. They’re the double champions in Norway and have a lot of expectations.
"From our point of view I think its fantastic to have such a big game in Dundalk, for the people, the city and we hope everyone enjoys it but we’ll be ready for it, don’t worry.”
