I think the management made some very tough decisions during the game last Sunday with the rest of the competition in mind. To me with 10 minutes to go we needed a second goal if we were to have a chance of getting a result from the game. To that end putting John Mike on the square and hitting him with a few high balls would've been one of our best options for this. He had just made a huge catch that led to a score for Carlow before being replaced. Jack Kavanagh was indeed out on his feet when replaced . In John Mike's case I think the lads were looking ahead to the next few weeks. We got through last Sunday without any injuries or red cards which for a panel as small as ours is important.
A great test in store for the lads today. Hope we retain the same hunger and work rate as last week and if we do and get a few goals, we will again be delighted. Best of luck to the players and management.
