Sullivan insists that Dundalk will be ready for trip to Thomond Park
With his side having stretched their winning streak to four games with victory over St Patrick’s Athletic, Dundalk’s goalscoring hero John Sullivan only laments the fact that their run has been halted by the summer break.

With his side having stretched their winning streak to four games with victory over St Patrick’s Athletic, Dundalk’s goalscoring hero John Sullivan only laments the fact that their run has been halted by the summer break.

Sullivan and his team-mates have beaten Sligo Rovers, Phoenix FC and Drogheda United as well as Pat’s in their last four fixtures but now must wait until the end of the month before resuming league action when they take on Limerick at Thomond Park.

The 22-year-old insists that although the side will cope with the break, he would prefer them to continue playing matches especially considering the run that they are on.

“We would want to be playing games rather than having the break with the way we are playing,” he said.

“I want to keep the run of games going but we will be ready to go again when the fixtures start up.”

Speaking about the winning goal, Sullivan said he was shocked to see his effort hit the net.

“I just hit it and to see it go in I really couldn’t believe it,” he laughed. “I scored against Dundalk for Drogheda last year in the derby so I felt like I owed them that. It was nice to get the winner especially in such an important game.”
