Limerick FC welcome Bohemian FC to Thomond Park tonight - 11 days after their last match at Dundalk
Limerick will hope to take all three points against a struggling Bohs side, who sit one place below the Blues in the table.
Blues boss Stuart Taylor, speaking ahead of tonight’s match, said: “It’s an opportunity for us to go and pick up points, but it’s no different from the teams that we’ve played up until now in terms of the three points. It’s a draw before you start the game, you’ve got to go and create chances to go and score goals.”
Bohs are coming off the back of a 4-0 home pasting, by Derry City and two weeks previously they were well beaten 3-0, at home to Sligo Rovers. Both games were shown live on RTE.
Asked whether Limerick could look to exploit a potential lack of confidence, in a young Bohs side, Taylor said: “We’ll be looking to, these are things that I’ve spoken to the players about.
“But they’ve had a wee break the same as us. No doubt they’ll be recharged and revitalised and ready to go.
“They’ve had a start to the league that hasn’t been ideal - they would have expected to have picked up more points - we just need to make sure that they don’t pick them up against us.
“It’s going to be a very difficult game. Bohemians are full of energy, they try and play decent football, they’ve got a decent philosophy about them.
“We’re going to have to make sure that we go about our jobs in a professional way like we have done in the first seven games.
“It’s going to be a difficult game tomorrow night without a doubt,” added Taylor.
Robbie Williams remains sidelined, while Jeffrey Judge could make the match squad for the first time this season, having hopefully shaken off the after effects of glandular fever.
“Dominic Foley has suffered a further setback and will remain unavailable.
“Traditionally it’s a massive club the manager (Aaron Callaghan) - the experience they’ve got - Owen Heary the assistant - they know the league inside out they know what they’ve got to do to go and get points,” said Taylor of a Bohs side he feels are perhaps not destined to prop up the league table all season.”
