Trio treasure Bit o' Red win
Paul O’Conor hailed the brilliant feeling of scoring the match-winning goal as Joseph Ndo saluted his fellow midfielder’s contribution in winning the Setanta Sports Cup for Sligo Rovers.
Ndo completed his full set of medals with the club, three FAI Cups, one SSE Airtricity League, EA Sports and now Setanta and O’Conor bagged his first with the club.
O’Conor said: He spoke to me before the game and said he had never lost a final and kept reminding me of it. I didn't want to be on the team that made him lose one. It was great to win a first senior one.”
“It was brilliant scoring the goal. When it happened, I felt there was going to be a lot of goals so I didn't think it was going to be the winner. It ended up being it and I'm delighted it was.
“The manager wants me to get into the box and to make sure when the ball is out there to be in the box.
“When Greener was out there I knew he was going to be in a dangerous area. It was a little flick and I was delighted to see it hit the back of the net.”
Listen to Joseph Ndo and Paul O'Conor reflect on the victory.
Danny Ledwith was introduced as a substitute for Ndo in the first half because of injury. Ledwith was jubilant as he landed his first medal in Sligo and second Setanta win.
“I'm absolutely buzzing. The last half an hour of the game, it was a tough one, the conditions weren't easy but I'm absolutely over the moon.
“We said at half-time, "get through this together" and there is a trophy and medals at the end of it. It's going to lift us again.
“We're on a fantastic streak already. This win will push us on and get going in the league again.”
