MAHON â€“ WE CANâ€™T AFFORD TO LET IT SLIP
St Pat's lost an impressive home record against Dundalk going down 2-1 to the Lillywhites at Richmond Park this evening.
After the game Saints boss Pete Maonhon shared his thoughts with stpatsfc.com:
â€śDundalk looked safe at one stage but they were hanging on towards the end, on another night we might have got a draw.
When we were down 2-0 with 10 men we left ourselves a mountain to climb.
I was very disappointed with the sending off but the referee was right, he really had no option.
It's the first time that we have been beaten by a fulltime team in the league this season.
Overall I thought the game was high on effort and poor on quality.
We've 1 point from our last four games, only 1 out of 12 points when in the 1st round of games we took 10 out of a possible 12.
This was our 42nd game, we've a small enough squad and perhaps the season is catching up with us.
We will just have to take it on the chin and move on.
Sligo and Sporting Fingal are now right behind us, we've been in the top two all season and now we're in danger of slipping down to 3rd, 4th or even 5th and we simply can't afford to let that happen.
Our next game is away to Sporting Fingal next Saturday and that will be a massive test for usâ€ť.
