Clancy hails 'Big performance'

 

Last night’s one goal win over Derry City at The Showgrounds saw a first goal in Sligo Rovers colours for Tim Clancy.

The defender scored with a header in the first half and was named man of the match for his display.

The Trim native said he knew it was important to pick up points from the weekend’s games: ’It’s a big performance from us after winning last Friday night. There had been a lot of negative results the last couple of weeks.

“We had a good performance against Cork, we were unlucky to lose and then we knew we had to massive games. Friday and Monday we had two big, big games so just delighted to get the six points on the board.”

 

 

During the second half an awkward fall saw Clancy dislocated his left shoulder but but he bravely shrugged it off and carried on: “Just as I fell it dislocated, it popped out. It was out for 10 or 15 seconds but it popped back in so I will see how it is over the next few days but hopefully it will be alright.”

With four games now under his belt at his new club Clancy is enjoying his time and thinks the squad should definitely be able to beat the drop: “It’s just about getting games. The lads in that dressing room shouldn’t be where they are in the league, we all know that. So that’s two good performances and I’m just looking forward to playing more and getting more good performances and wins to get us up that league.”
