'We have to be satisfied,' says Limerick FC boss

LIMERICK FC manager Martin Russell’s insists complacency would be an issue for his high-flying side who are already four points clear at the top of the SSE Airtricity League First Division table.

Limerick thumped Cobh Ramblers 6-1 at the Markets Field on Saturday night before an impressive attendance of 1,590 to move four points clear of second-placed Drogheda after just three series of games.

Russell’s side brought their tally of league goals for the season to an impressive 15 as the in-form Blues put their Munster rivals to the sword.

Limerick FC are now as short as 1/7 to win the First Division title wih bookmakers, having began the season as 2/5 shots to finish top.

Russell said: “We can only look after ourselves really. Whatever happens in the other games we can’t control that.

”We can control our own performances and to date we would have to be satisfied, but not be complacent, and keep on trying to do the things that help us do well and even do better if we can.

”We have Athlone next weekend in the league. I watched their game last night. They got a draw away to Drogheda and were very competitive.

”Everyone is going to want to hurt Limerick and stop us as we try and march on. We will give them the respect they deserve.”

Limerick face Cobh Ramblers in the EA Sports Cup at St Colman’s Park tomorrow night, 7.15pm.
