Top Brand at Tal­laght

Irish Daily Mirror - - SPORT - BY PAUL O’HEHIR

BRAN­DON MIELE is the hottest prop­erty in Ire­land, ac­cord­ing to Stephen Bradley. “Right now he’s prob­a­bly one of the most in-form play­ers in the league,” said the Sham­rock Rovers boss ahead of to­day’s EA Sports Cup fi­nal. “I’m sure Dun­dalk have one or two with the run they are on as well, but hav­ing some­one like Bran­don in the form he’s in…. “He has a strange way of hit­ting the ball, a tech­nique around the box. He dips it at the last minute and I don’t blame keep­ers. He has that in his game right now and looks very dan­ger­ous any­where around the box.” Bradley in­sists too much has been made of Rovers hav­ing ‘home’ ad­van­tage to­day – and claims his team are un­der­dogs. “Cork are cham­pi­ons-elect and de­servedly so be­cause they’ve done it with such a large mar­gin. But in terms of foot­ball, Dun­dalk are the hard­est to play against. “We’ll be un­der­dogs be­cause they’re ahead of us in the league but head-to­head, we’ve played three and won two.”
