Interviews

 

Dave Robertson: “I am delighted. I am happy with the performance in terms on tonight. We spoke about it before and we knew everyone to a man had to be on their game for the 90 minutes. It was important that from the moment we walked out of the tunnel to the final whistle that everyone was on their game and as it was that’s what happened.

“It’s been a good evening, a good point, it could have been three. There could have been a winner late either way. There was a great save from Schlingermann, a great tackle from Regan. There was also a great chance for Martin and a couple of really good chances in the first half and early in the second so a draw is probably a fair result.”

Michael Leahy: “It’s always important to get clean sheets and we are delighted to get one tonight. We had a tough week training there, we really worked on our defensive shape.

"The manager was drilling it into us to get the team cohesiveness and to chase and get the ball back. And also to keep our shape as a back four. And the midfielders and the strikers worked hard so it was a real team effort to get that clean sheet tonight.”
