Cork City 0 – 1 St Patrick’s Athletic
SO a end to Cork city’s unbeaten spell losing to a St Patricks athletic side just back from their Europa league tie with Bundesliga side Hannover 96 from Thursday last week, which is why the match was on a Monday night instead of the normal Friday night.
Christy Fagan who had been in talks with Tommy Dunne before the start of the season punished Cork City in the second half with a neat finish. Cork City weren’t threatening enough and had few chances.
Tommy Dunne knows that Cork City need to start scoring goals but with new signing Parker suspended for another two game, he will have to rely on Davin O’Neil and Vinny Sullivan with some youth players like Steven Kenny to chip in a few goals.
Up next for the Rebel Army is UCD away on Friday night where City lost on the opening game of the season, but will be going to pick up all three points as a loss to the students could drag Cork into a relegation battle.
The next home came is on Monday next week with Drogheda United being the guests who are flying high in second place in the league, this year’s surprise package.
