Heary: "We need to focus on getting through."

 

Mayo League are the opposition for the Bit o’red in the first stage of the EA Sports Cup, they visit the Showgrounds tomorrow at 7:45pm.

Manager Owen Heary says some changes will have to be made to the team but he is still treating the Cup as a priority.

“Every trophy we are competing in we will gave the same priority to. We want to win the EA Sports Cup.

“We will need to make a few changes for the game just to freshen things up and give others game time. We will have three games in a week with Drogheda in the league next Friday so it’s important that we keep players fresh for that. But the players that we do pick to go out there will be professional and go out and do a job.”

He says it’s good to have a game so soon after the disappointment of conceding in the 96th minute against Cork City: “We have analysed the game and will look to rectify what went wrong. But we need to focus now on getting through to the next round of this competition.

"Drawing the game against Cork wasn’t the be all and end all. We were very frustrated and disappointed to not get the three points but we will move on and look to make it through.

“We do know a bit about the opposition. Gavin Dykes went to watch them and we have some feedback on what they will be like. We have given the players the game plan and if we stick through that I think that we can get through. The players will be going out looking to do that.”
