BASEMENT side Limerick FC will be desperate to record their first win of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division season when locking horns with mid-table Derry City at Jackman Park this Monday night, 7.45pm.
Limerick fell to their fifth defeat of the campaign when losing out 3-2 to Galway United at Deacy Park on Friday night.
Blues manager Martin Russell said: “The right ones will get their reward. I think we’ve got a fair amount of right ones. We still obviously need support.
“But the ones that want to and do value playing at the highest level in the game should relish Monday night and look forward to doing as well as they can against Derry. We’ll be encouraging the right ones to do that.
“It’s competitive all the way through the league. Even Galway last week should have got something against Sligo. I don’t think there are any easy games, particularly for the likes of ourselves and the nature of what we have at the moment.
“We have to really play well to get anything from them. That’s where it’s at and that is what we’ve got to focus on – playing as well as we can and getting the rub of the green at times, which you need.”
Limerick FC host Shamrock Rovers in another key Premier Division clash at Jackman Park on Saturday night, 6.30pm.
