Heary: Sligo not in relegation mix
27 Apr 2015 14:02
Sligo Rovers manager Owen Heary does not believe his side are in a relegation battle despite picking up just one win in the opening 10 matches in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.
-
Heary’s side fell to a fifth defeat of the season to St Patrick’s Athletic on Friday night in Richmond Park, meaning they have registered just seven points from a possible 30.
-
The Bit O’ Red sit in 10th place, with winless Limerick the only side below them in the league table.
-
The Shannonsiders face Rovers in the final game of the first series of matches this Saturday in The Showgrounds.
-
Heary has backed his team to climb the table in the coming weeks.
-
Asked whether he saw his side in a long-term battle to avoid the drop, he said: “I don't. We can pick up. We know we have the players to do it. We have a few out injured, John Russell before the game went off injured, we know once we get our players back then we can push on a bit. And also, some of the younger players are developing more and getting more experienced.
-
“As the season goes on, we will get more wins. We are all frustrated. The players are frustrated, the whole lot of us, we have put ourselves in this situation and we are the only ones that can get ourselves out of it. So we will keep working hard and push on up the table.”
