Drennan hop­ing for good end to the sea­son

The Sligo Champion - - SPORT -

MIKEY Drennan ad­mits he prob­a­bly won’t score a more im­por­tant goal at Sligo Rovers this sea­son, as his sec­ond-half strike con­firmed Rovers’ place in the SSE Airtricity Premier Di­vi­sion next sea­son.

Rovers were 2-1 win­ners over Bray Wan­der­ers at The Show­grounds on Satur­day night, and Drennan ad­mit­ted it could well have been more.

“IT’S a good time com­ing, es­pe­cially for the fans. The main thing was to get a win here and we prob­a­bly should have had five or six by the end.

“WE made it hard for our­selves but it was still a good per­for­mance and good to get a win at home,” he added.

The oc­ca­sion was not lost on the play­ers, who en­sured they put in a winning per­for­mance on the club’s 90th an­niver­sary, with Pres­i­dent Michael D Hig­gins in the crowd for the game.

“That was the main thing with such a big crowd here tonight. Hope­fully we can get more big crowds if we keep winning at home.

“We need to con­vert our away form into our home form and then the fans would con­tinue to turn up and we would push up the ta­ble, es­pe­cially next year.”

With just three league games left, two of those are at home, and Drennan is hope­ful that the Bit O’Red can fin­ish the sea­son strongly.

“Hope­fully we can get two wins out of two with Bohs and Sham­rock Rovers com­ing up at home. Ob­vi­ously we have Dun­dalk away but we’re hop­ing to fin­ish the sea­son strongly which is the main thing re­ally.”
