Dundalk made it five straight home wins on Friday evening with a come from behind 3-1 victory over Bohemians at Oriel Park.

Speaking to dundalkfc.com after the contest one of the key players on the night, Greg Sloggett, admitted that the Lilywhites felt unlucky to go in 1-0 behind at the break but was delighted with the response from his teammates in the second period.

“Absolutely buzzing. We went in 1-0 down at half-time and we were thinking that it was a bit harsh on us to be behind. The goal came against the run of play for them, we had done well in that period and the words at half-time was for us to keep doing what we were doing, be patient and it will come.

“We started the second half brilliantly, we got the goal quickly after we came out which we wanted and took the initiative then.

“We are absolutely delighted with how the night went, Bohemians are always a tough team to beat so it’s a great win for us.”

Stephen O’Donnell’s men bounced back from a frustrating 2-2 draw against UCD last week, despite being 2-0 in front however Sloggett was pleased with the response and feels that the side are in a good place at the moment.

“We were disappointed to come away last week from UCD with just a point. It was frustrating but we were determined to make sure that we got the win this week. It was so important to get back to winning ways.

“Our home form has been excellent since the season started. I think we turned it on in the second half. We played some lovely football and scored some great goals.

“Everyone to a man played their part and we are happy with how we are playing. ”

Next up is a double trip to the north-west to face Derry City and then Finn Harps over the space of three days.

The former UCD star is relishing the trips and is intent on taking victory, first in Derry but is understandably wary of the threat that is posed over the weekend.

“We are on a good run of form generally. Last week it was a bit of a blip and that is what we are putting it down to. We are on the right trajectory.

“The manager is hammering home to us that we are on the right path. We know on our day we can beat anyone and we go into the matches next weekend knowing that.

“Derry City are a good side and you can see that by the way they have started the season but we are confident we can go there and get the win. “
