Duffy: Delighted With Win
Dundalk FC began their European adventure on Thursday night against Estonian side FCI Levadia Tallinn in the UEFA Europa League, first qualifying round.
The Lilywhites secured an impressive win thanks to Dylan Connolly’s vital second half goal away in the Kadriorg Stadium.
Speaking to dundalkfc.com, winger Michael Duffy said after the game: “We are delighted with the result. It was a tough game over there but I thought in the second half we were very good and we could have scored two or three goals.
“It’s tough to get an away win in Europe against any team so we’re delighted with it and it’s on to the next leg now at Oriel Park.”
The former Celtic player set Connolly up for the only goal of the game and is confident of completing the job at Oriel Park on Thursday night and advancing to the next qualifying round if they an repliate their recent form.
“I was happy enough with my second half performance and I am always happy to get a goal or help with an assist. That’s what I try to do every week and I’ve been getting a lot of assists lately so I want to try to keep that up.
“I would say Levadia will probably go for it a bit more over here in the 2nd leg. Now that they are a goal down they need to go for it. We know what to do – we were good in the 1st leg so as long as we keep playing the way we have in the last two or three months then we should be fine.”
