Audio: Foster Praises “Fantastic Performance”
Dundalk FC manager Ian Foster praised a “fantastic performance” from his side against Sligo Rovers, stating that he got “reaction in abundance” following last week’s loss to Derry City.
Foster added: “We dominated the game for long, long periods and we’re unfortunate not to win the game”, before pointing out “we would have been one of the youngest teams in the league finishing the game tonight”.
The 34-year-old Liverpool-born boss also said that he is “delighted” to keep the club’s unbeaten home record intact, the only undefeated home title still left in the Premier Division, acknowledging that “we need to take that into our league away form”.
Looking ahead to the Good Friday trip to Drogheda United next weekend, Foster concluded “they’re fighting for their lives, we’re desperate to get our away form right, it should be a cracking game.”
On injury news, Foster said afterwards that central midfielder Dean Bennett “felt but didn’t tear” his hamstring, with the 33-year-old “a doubt” for Monday’s visit of Cliftonville. Centre-half Shane Guthrie is, however, a certain absentee with blurred vision and concussion.
