McGrath: Going To Be Good
Jamie McGrath has been speaking about grinding out a late win away to Bohemian FC and the positive atmosphere within the Dundalk FC squad.
The midfielder, came on as a second half substitute at Dalymount Park on Friday. Speaking to dundalkfc.com, he praised his teammates for the sense of togetherness which runs through the group.
“It was deadly to get a late winner, it’s a good feeling,” said McGrath.
“We probably would have liked to have scored earlier in the game to seal it up but, it was a very tough game and it just shows the benefits of having good strength and depth with Killer, Mickey and myself coming on to replace the boys with fresh legs when it was late on. It was good to get the three points in the end.”
Having won the last five consecutive games and not conceding a goal the Lilywhites will face Rosenborg BK in the UEFA Champions League, second qualifying round first-leg at Oriel Park on Wednesday. The 20-year-old went on to explain what he expects from the Norwegian champions.
“When we came back from the break it was our aim to pick up maximum points in the league and to be in good form going in to the Rosenborg tie, so we’re going to be full of confidence now.
“We are going to be doing a lot of analysis on Rosenborg over the next couple of days, getting ready and preparing for the task ahead. We are going to give it a good go, we’ve nothing to be afraid of. Most of the boys have played against similar or better opposition last year so they’re well used to these nights – it’s going to be a good one.
“It’s going to be some night! It’ll be a full house at Oriel Park and it’s certainly a game that everyone will want to play in, so I’m really looking forward to it – it’s going to be some experience.
“When you see the crowd out and hear them getting behind you then it’s an extra man nearly, it drives you on and it is them nights that everybody wants to play in their career.”
