Caulfield delighted with Rebels
01 Sep 2015 12:12
Cork City boss John Caulfield will focus on their next league game rather than the action in Oriel Park tonight after the Rebels kept their title hopes alive by beating St Patrick’s Athletic.
-
City comfortably saw off the Saints in Turner’s Cross after goals from Alan Bennett, Kevin O’Connor and Billy Dennehy in the 3-1 win.
-
It moved Cork to within five points of Dundalk, with Stephen Kenny’s men playing their game in hand at home to Shamrock Rovers tonight.
-
Caulfield said: “I keep saying that we have to keep looking after ourselves. Some people will watch the game. From my own point of view, the match in Bray on Saturday is a huge game for us.
-
“I’ll be putting my energy working on that with the rest of the management, getting our act together for that game which is a huge game.
-
“It will be in interesting [in Oriel Park] because Rovers have to play Dundalk twice and they can still win the league, so it will be an interesting game.”
-
Caulfield has been thrilled by how his side responded to defeat to Limerick and the Hoops. Victories over Galway United and Pat’s has kept them in the race and they look certainties for a European place at the very least.
-
He stated: “It is a huge win for us. A couple of weeks we took no points from six. This weekend we have taken six from six to give ourselves and outside chance and more importantly, opens the gap between ourselves and Rovers and Pat’s for Europe. It pushes us closer to Europe.
-
“There is bit of pressure on Dundalk now as well so a good weekend all around.
-
“The most important thing for us is we bounced back from a very bad weekend. We gave a good performance tonight and I think we were well worth the win. We possibly could have scored a few more.
-
“We have pushed further ahead in second place and for the run-in now we need to be strong and keep picking off those points.”
