Having only joined Waterford FC last week ahead of the club’s trip to Longford Town, it was a dream debut for new signing Paul Keegan who was thrilled to get on the scoresheet and get three points.
“It’s great to get the win and I’m pleased to get the goal,” Keegan said after the match. “It was a tough game and it was end to end. Both teams had chances and the game was pretty much up and down. I thought that we probably played better in the first half than we did in the second.
“I thought that we started a bit slow but we got the win and that’s the most important thing. The goal was a bit of luck and absolutely luck plays its part when you’re going for a league title. I also think that it’s about grinding out results.”
Keegan knows the importance of the win in the City Calling Stadium, and is looking forward to facing Cobh Ramblers this weekend.
“I know that everyone wants to be doing well and putting in good performances but it’s all about getting results and if you keep getting results like the one we got then I don’t think we’ll be far off come the final game of the season.
“When you look back our defence, I thought that Kenny Browne was absolutely fantastic when it mattered as was Patrick McClean. They won every header and tackle when it mattered and they were very solid. I think that they’ll be happy with their performance.
“We have a massive game next against Cobh Ramblers. It’s important that we all get a good recovery before that match. It will be a tough game as Cobh are a very good side. We’ve all got to make sure that we look after ourselves and push forward.”
The Blue face Cobh Ramblers this Friday in the RSC at 7.45pm.
