NO lack of excitement following Cork City with a 4-2 win over UCD last Friday night.

A penalty to each side, both harsh in my view and a goal for city which was just over the line and a tight call for the ref.

With 10 minutess to go UCD got a goal to level it at 2-2.

With such little time left it seemed that city would lose another two points, but two late goals securing a 4-2 win over the students and another hatrick for Davin O’Neill.

Then on Monday night Cork were away to fourth-place Drogheda United and with 10 minutes to go Drogheda were winning 1-0 and looked like city would come away from their travels without any points at all but Darly Horgan got a equalisier on the 80th min to gain City a valuable point away from home.

Next up for the Rebel Army is Athlone Town on Friday night at Turners Cross at 7.45pm in the FAI cup.

Former Cork City chairman John O’Sullivan is the new CEO of Athlone to add a bit of spice to the tie but Cork will be big favourites over the first division outfit who City beat 7-0 last Autumn.

In relation to a former Cork City and Skibbereen AFC player Liam Collins will be playing for the DC United U23 team for the summer with his first game on this weekend, so best of luck to him over there.
