Corcoran: "Confidence is sky-high."
Dinny Corcoran was again a scorer getting the second goal in tonight’s 6-0 hammering of Finn Harps.
With two hat-tricks to his name so far and a total of nine goals already confidence is high for the new number nine at the Showgrounds.
He said after the game that he was happy with the way the team played: “I thought it was a very good performance overall. The first ten-fifteen minutes was a bit of a battle, they came out of the traps and it was quite an even game. But I think after that took control and kept the ball well. And six goals so you have to be happy with that performance.
“My confidence is sky-high at the moment, every game I’ve played I’ve scored. Hopefully I can take that into the league now and for the Cork match, that’s what I will be looking to do, time will tell.
“My job is made a lot easier with the quality we have in mid-field and out wide, it makes my job easier. But I still have to finish off the job so there is a bit of pressure to score the goals. But with the mid-field we have they will create a lot of chances so I just have to make sure I’m on the end of them to finish them.”
As well as his rich vein of form at the moment fellow striker Morten Nielsen has also found the net in each of his appearance with two tonight taking him to five overall: “I’m very good friends with Morten, we are next door neighbours, so we get on very well. I am happy to see him score as well as me because that give more competition for both of us and pushes us on to do even better for ourselves. But I’m happy if he’s scoring, once the team is winning, and that’s how it will stay. I don’t know what the plans are whether I’ll play with him or if we are competing for the one spot but I am happy to see Morten score as much as I am.”
There is one further friendly to be played as Rovers prepare for the new season beginning in two week and Corcoran feels the team are well on their way to being ready for the first game: “I wouldn’t say I am 100% but I am definitely getting there. We’ve done five weeks of good, intense work. So I wouldn’t say 100% but I would definitely say we have been fitter than the teams we have played against in pre-season. We are a strong team and I think with another two weeks training we will be 100% ready for Cork.”
