Murray Wary Of Bray Threat
Ronan Murray believes that getting ‘across the line’ over Shamrock Rovers last Friday evening was a big result for the Lilywhites and speaking to dundalkfc.com Murray felt that they were worthy winners in the televised game.
“We managed to get across the line last week against Shamrock Rovers. It was a big game with a good crowd at Oriel Park. It was a big win against one of our main rivals. It was a positive night for us. We got the three points and it was a tense game.
“It was a close game but I felt that we were worthy winners on the night and it was great to get the win.”
Murray made his return to action after an ankle injury on Monday evening and while he was disappointed with the goals conceded, overall he was happy to get through to the last 8 and on a personal level he netted his first competitive goal, something he is hoping that will start a goal rush for him.
“I was involved on Monday after injury and it was disappointing to concede so many goals with our defence being so solid all season but then we scored four as well. We managed to get through tot he quarter-finals, albeit on penalties but we are very happy to be in the next round.
“I managed to get off the mark too, I got the monkey off my back which was great and it was important for me but I want to push on now and score as many as I can and help the team to keep winning.”
The focus is now on Bray Wanderers and the Mayo man knows that it won’t be easy on Friday evening at the Carlisle Grounds, especially with the change in management this week, however he is intent to go get the three points to ensure the side continue their winning form.
“With Bray’ manager leaving during the week and the new caretaker in there they are going to be rejuvenated to an extent. It’s going to make it that bit more difficult. We knew it was going to be difficult anyway, they made it tough for us on the opening night of the season so we are expecting more of the same.
“We are expecting a battle in Bray and we know it will be tough but hopefully we can get another victory and keep our good form going.”
