Limerick manager Stuart Taylor revealed pride in his players after a 2-0 win over Shamrock Rovers in the Airtricity Premier Division on Tuesday night.
Jason Hughes’ goal broke the deadlock inside ten minutes at Thomond Park and Rory Gaffney’s second-half wonder strike sealing three points.
Taylor said: “We were a wee bit worried after the good performance against St. Pat’s that the game was too far away, but all credit to the players.
“They applied themselves brilliantly throughout training in the last ten days or so – it has been a really good tempo.
“We were busting to get out at the start of the game and all credit to them – they dominated the game from start to finish.
“I thought that we harassed them all over the pitch, we forced them into mistakes and we took our chances.
“There was a real togetherness in the performance tonight. I was over the moon with the performance and I was delighted with the result.
“We’ve not really had the pleasure of having the dominance of having more aerial threat than the opposition, but it was something that we had tonight and we made the most of it.”
“I thought the play was fantastic. I’m absolutely delighted and I’m proud of the players.” - Stuart Taylor
Taylor was pleased with how Limerick took their goals in the home win.
He concluded: “Having Sammy Oji and Stephen Folan going up attacking the ball was great and Jason Hughes pounced on the second ball and got his goal which was brilliant.
“Then in the second half, Rory scored a wonder goal. Taking those two goals out of the way, I thought the play was fantastic. I’m absolutely delighted and I’m proud of the players.”
