St Patrick’s Athletic boss Liam Buckley declared himself “happy enough” with the Saints’ 1-0 Europa League first-round first-leg win over Jeunesse Esch in Inchicore but warned the job is far from done.
Christy Fagan scored the only goal of the game at Richmond Park to become the Dublin side’s top scorer in European football, heading home the winner after just 10 minutes.
The sides will meet again in Luxembourg next Tuesday and Buckley admitted that he expects a better game, from both teams.
“It’s important we won obviously; to keep a clean sheet is a plus as well,” the manager told RTÉ Sport.
“We’d be disappointed with the second-half performance.
“Overall, we’ve got to be happy enough that we’re going out there with a win.
“We were trying to keep possession. In fairness I can see us playing better and I can see them playing better.
“That said, it was just important we keep a clean sheet. We did limit them to very few chances.
“Overall we’d be delighted to get the result but as I said I’m sure we have a match on our hands over there next week.”
