Shels boss Ian Morris has told fans they “will play a big part” in the season run-in beginning with the visit of Bray Wanderers tomorrow night.
Shels are looking to bounce back after their first loss of the season last week away to Galway United.
However, Shels remain seven points clear at the top of the SSE Airtricity League First Division as they welcome Bray, who themselves are in good form.
“The fans have been fantastic away from home so we’re looking forward to bringing them back to Tolka where the noise will be even better,” Morris said.
“We want the fans to be intimidating and really drive us on, to get massively behind us,” he added.
Morris said he is pleased to have nearly a full squad to choose from with a wealth of options up front, though said “there will be be need for players to play a key role coming off the bench too.”
“We have Dayle and Farreler flying, Yassine really impressing, Yoyo coming back to full fitness, Ryan our top scorer and Michael is back now too with Eric as well so we’ve got good options,” he said.
Morris said he has been pleased to see the desire from his players this week “who weren’t happy with losing the unbeaten record.”
“We’re looking to get back to business. We’ve been fantastic all season and we’re looking forward to tomorrow night,” he added.
“Bray are doing well at the moment but the league is strong at the minute with tough games every week, but that’s the challenge,” he said.
JJ Lunney looks set to miss the next few weeks with an injury picked up away to Galway last week while Denzil Fernandes and Gerardo Bruna are long term absentees.
There are no suspensions for Shels this week.
