Adams: "We will be in for a tough game."

 

Micky Adams is expecting a very tough game against Cobh Wanderers when his Sligo Rovers side go there in the third round of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup on Saturday night.

He wants his team to take a professional attitude into the game at St. Colman’s Park to ensure they are not knocked out of the competition.

Adams is happy going into the game with two wins under the team’s belt but he says that won’t matter tomorrow evening: “The two wins last weekend were most welcome. But they don’t mean a jot for this game. They give us more confidence and belief that we can go and win games but cup football is not like that. If we don’t play well against Cobh we will get beat.”

He continued by saying that he expects his team to adopt a professional approach: “We have to be professional for this game. I want to see high standards at this club. We have to set those standards on the training pitch, in the dressing room and around the town. We then must take those standards into this match and any others we play.”

Adams would like cup success but isn’t looking any further ahead than the Cobh Wanderers game, he said: “We are only one out of 16 teams left in the competition that could still win it, that’s how we have got to look at it. We will not be taking Cobh Wanderers lightly at all and are taking the game very seriously.

"We have to go there and be professional and I am in no doubt that we will be in for a tough game.”
