Top flight football returns to the Cross this year.

Owen Thornhill

BEFORE the game I would have been delighted with a draw away to a undefeated side who are second in the league considering Cork City’s poor start to the season but having a penalty to take the lead with 15 minutes to go, we could have come away with all three points.

Tadgh Purcell’s penalty was straight down the middle with little power and was easily saved, anyway another point on the board and Cork City are starting to pick up results after a dismal start.

Next up for the Rebel Army are UCD at home on Friday night at Turners Cross at 7.45pm.

After a disappointing 1-0 loss to the students on the opening weekend, revenge is on the cards, followed closely on Monday with a trip to Drogheda United.

So all action for over the next week and three, four or six points could help City push further up the table.
