Shelbourne have no new injury concerns as they resume their 2021 season on Friday night away to Bray Wanderers.
Shels boss Ian Morris is expecting a “tough task” on Friday against Bray but is excited at the prospect of fans returning.
“I love it, having them start to come back, it’s been a long time coming and you can see it on the TV with the international games.
“The tempo is a lot quicker and I think some players in the matches with crowds seem more focused too. It gives it that bit more of an intensity so I can’t wait to have them here,” he said.
Morris said he is “really pleased with how the players have come back” after the summer break.
“It’s really important that we keep the momentum we’ve had from the start and keep the tempo that we have had recently.
“The first ten games don’t count for much if we don’t do that but we have prepared well for Friday,” Morris added.
Morris was adamant that Bray’s position in the league is “a false position” and is expecting a really difficult game in the Carlisle Grounds on Friday night after the two sides played out a 3-3 draw at the start of the season.
“Every game they have had has been on a knife-edge decided by the odd kick of a ball so it’s important that we’ve prepared right and approach the game in the right way,” he added.
Shels remain without Denzil Fernandes and Gerardo Bruna through injuries and have no suspensions.
