When Patrick Hoban beat Ger Doherty with a second-half penalty during the 2-2 draw with Finn Harps in Ballybofey last week, it was his 123rd goal for Dundalk, leaving him just 19 short of equalling Joey Donnelly’s record.

It also meant that Hoban became just the fifth player in the club’s history to score in six consecutive games, joining an elite list that includes Danny Hale (1966/67), Cathal Muckian (1978/79), Tommy Doran (1942/43) and George Sterling (1945/46). Hale scored in eight consecutive games during the title-winning 1966/67 season while Muckian scored in seven during the double-winning campaign of 1978/79.

Hoban’s form has been recognised by the Soccer Writers Association of Ireland, who have nominated him for their SSE Airtricity League Player of the Month award for September, while he has also been named as the inaugural winner of the 1903 Supporters Club’s Player of the Month award, which he will be presented with before the clash with Shamrock Rovers on Friday night.

The Lilywhites striker sat down with the Dundalk FC media team on Thursday afternoon. You can watch the interview above.
