Morris urges fans to create electric noise

Posted on

Shels boss Ian Morris has urged those fans attending Tolka Park for the first time in 18 months tomorrow to “create noise and be electric” as his team faces Cork City. 

The Reds are looking for their seventh win in a row after last week’s 1-0 win away to Wexford FC. 

Morris, though, is expecting a seriously difficult game between the clubs who he says “both have a massive history.” 

“It’s a huge game. There’s always that excitement when the fixture comes in for both clubs and the game is set up to be a big game, especially with fans back.

“They’ve come back after the break and had a decent win in Athlone where you see a lot of energy and their players giving everything to get at you,” he added. 

With 100 fans back in to the ground, Morris said he is “hoping the fans can help raise us to another level.” 

Shels have missed some key bodies in recent weeks, but the Shels manager has been impressed at the depth in his squad and the players’ team spirit. 

“It just shows the quality of the dressing room and how the players have worked hard and knuckled down.

“Everything we do is for the team and you have to take the opportunity and be ready which the players have been every week,” he added. 

Morris urged fans to get down to Tolka Park on Saturday too for the WNL game where a successful trial may mean bigger attendances in the coming weeks too.

Shels’ Yoyo Mahdy and Sean Quinn remain a doubt while Denzil Fernandes and Gerardo Bruna are out through injury.
