Posted on

Shelbourne boss Damien Duff says his squad are “chomping at the bit” going into a big few days for the Reds. 

Shels welcome Dundalk FC to Tolka Park tomorrow night in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division before travelling to Dalymount Park on Monday to face Bohs. 

However, the Reds man said “we can’t look past tomorrow” as preparations culminate in another big clash in Tolka. 

“The fans have been amazing and we’ll be looking forward to feeding off their noise tomorrow as they’re our 12th man. We’ll the energy that they give us,” he said. 

“I said it last week that this is the most exciting time of the week when all the hard work is done and we now have three games in a matter of days so it’s great,” he told shelbournefc.ie.

Shelbourne will be without Shane Griffin and JJ Lunney while they welcome back Daniel Carr into the fold. 

Duff praised Carr as “someone who everyone knows in the league possesses real quality so he has that reputation and now the hunger again to do well.” 

Duff said he and his staff will examine the list of players made available from the transfer list made available of non-national players now able to move clubs from Russia and Ukraine and thanked the Shelbourne board for their support in being able to look into it. 

The former Republic of Ireland international said Dundalk possess “real quality up top” and have a squad that features strength on the wings but his side “will be prepared.” 

Shels have no suspension worries heading into Friday’s game.
