AFTER watching his side crash out of the EA Sports Cup on Monday, Limerick FC boss Stuart Taylor stressed his belief that their league campaign remained the most element of their season.

Limerick FC were beaten 4-0 by Sligo Rovers in Thomond Park at the last eight stage of the EA Sports Cup, but must pick themselves up quickly ahead of next Friday’s trip to Dalymount Park to take on Bohemians.

It’s been an emotional few days for Limerick FC, with the club experiencing both ends of the spectrum in a little over 48 hours, going from the jubilation of beating Dundalk 3-2 on Saturday, before the devastation of being thrashed 4-0 by Sligo Rovers on Monday.

There is no time for the players to feel sorry for themselves, however, as they travel to Phibsborough for Friday night’s clash with a second from bottom Bohemians side.

There are sure to be a few tired legs in the Limerick squad as they seek to recover from the weekend’s exertions and Taylor will have to assess his squad before Friday night’s match.

“It looks like it’s the same metatarsal as before (on Gaffney injury), so he’s going to go for a scan. Dave (O’Leary) came off with a tight hamstring with a view to Friday and Shane (Tracy), we’ll have to keep an eye on for Friday as well. The league campaign is the most important, so we had an eye on Friday,” said Taylor.

The Blues should be boosted by the return of Craig Curran, ineligible on Monday due to the registration of his 18 month contract.
