Adams wants team to show spirit again


Micky Admas want to see his team continue to show the type of fighting spirit displayed in Longford a week ago against Bohs tomorrow to come.

He was pleased with the resilience displayed by his players and believes if they can continue in this fashion enough points will be earnd to beat the drop.

“We showed a lot of spirit and character in the Longford Town game last weekend to hang in the game and get a point and that is what we have got to do and show tomorrow as well. We also have to make sure that we do not do any stupid things and keep our discipline like last week. But if we can show that kind of spirit again we should be fine.”

Adams saw his side miss several chances in both of the last two games against Galway United and Longford which cost the team points. He added that the team must persevere to improve on this: “We are always working on that sort of thing in training. We work on finishing and various patterns of play in the last third of the pitch. The hardest part of football in sticking the ball in the back of the net.

“But I am happy with the number of opportunities we have been creating and if we keep doing that sooner or later more will go in. So if we continue going the same as we are the goals will come.2

He isn’t overly concerned by the other team around Rovers in the relegation dogfight and is focusing on the three game of our own: “We could spend all day looking at the league table and worrying about the results of the other teams that are playing tonight and hope that they don’t win. But there’s no point. We still have to go out and produce in our own games regardless. I would like to win all three games we have left, I the balance of probability we probably won’t but that is what we will be trying to do.”

Bohs are a team Adams has seen play twice and he is aware of the threat that they pose: “I seen them play twice already since coming here. In each game that showed a lot of quality and worked very hard. We will have to match that work rate if we are to get anything from the game. But we will be very aware of the strengths that they bring.”
