Louth turn at­ten­tion to the Cham­pi­onship

Drogheda Independent - - FRONT PAGE -

the dif­fer­ence and they killed us in the end.

‘We tried to open it up a bit to chase the game and that cost us a third goal. They were tight and in the sec­ond-half they didn’t re­ally look like con­ced­ing a goal. e tried to lump a few balls in and that was prob­a­bly the only way we were go­ing to score one and they dealt with it as well you could ex­pect.

‘It’s a dis­ap­point­ing day all round be­cause it’s definitely a game we felt we could win.’

Duffy played a cen­tral part in Tipp’s sec­ond goal, firstly pre­vent­ing a cer­tain goal with a bril­liant block and then cough­ing up pos­ses­sion as he tried to clear the dan­ger. He had stong claims for a free, but An­thony Nolan didn’t agree.

‘I was very dis­ap­pointed. I made the block and then I don’t know if it was a foul? You usu­ally get those kind of frees coming out, be­cause of where the play is and what’s af­ter hap­pen­ing, but no com­plaints it is what it is and they stuck it away.’

There was a sense af­ter the game that Louth wouldn’t be dwelling too long on the de­feat and Duffy is al­ready look­ing for­ward to the Le­in­ster Cham­pi­onship and to get­ting back to his club for a few league games.

‘We’re mov­ing well and pitches are firm­ing up and we won’t be in Drogheda again luck­ily enough. We have Wick­low in Par­nell Park and hope­fully Meath there too.

‘Train­ing is good and it won’t be hard to get go­ing again, we all know the cham­pi­onship is around the cor­ner and we know what we want out of that.

‘I can’t wait to play for the Fechin’s again too. I only played five games last year, so hope­fully I’ll get a bet­ter run this year,’ he added.
