MANAGERS' QUOTE

“Obviously Sligo are the form team of the moment, they're playing at home and they'll be fully motivated having lost to us in recent matches.

We're heading into our 23rd game of the season, we're nursing a few injuries and we know we'll be up against it.

However this is a quarter final of a cup, it's all to play for and we'll be going there to give it everything we can” – Pete Mahon.
