Speaking after his side's 4-3 win over UCD on Saturday, Limerick FC boss Martin Russell was pleased with the resilience his side had shown, despite having the odds stacked against them in the first half.
Limerick were 2-1 behind and were reduced to ten men, but came back to win 4-3 in dramatic fashion. Russell said: "To a man, from the sending-off, they did what they needed to do. They got their rewards. I felt we were worthy winners. It was pleasing to see the character they showed. They worked really hard.
"Today's a big positive. Against the odds, you see the way the lads approached the game and got the result - it's really left a glow with everybody. We're pleased with the end result."
While the performance was pleasing for Limerick, Martin Russell felt some decisions from referee Kevin O'Regan were incorrect.
He explained: "I don't think the lads got the right decisions tonight. We were up against it. We were playing well - and we just weren't getting the decisions. I wanted to remind the ref [at half time] that some of the decisions he made we wrong. Look, he's only young. We just needed fairer treatment."
