Dundalk striker Kurtis Byrne’s 6th goal of the season wrapped up a crucial three points for the Lilywhites against Shamrock Rovers on Friday night.
It was the 23-year-old’s second goal in as many games and speaking to the club’s website after the game, he said he was delighted with his recent run of form.
“I’m delighted that I got another goal”, said Byrne. “I haven’t been able to get just as many goals as I have liked but I have got a few now and things are moving in the right direction for me and definitely for the team.”
Byrne felt that the victory was Dundalk’s ‘biggest of the season’ and was fully deserved.
“It was a fantastic win. It was always going to be a difficult game, no doubt about that. Shamrock Rovers have good players and are a good team but we played really well for the full 90 minutes.”
Dundalk now face struggling Shelbourne at Tolka Park on Friday night and Byrne said that the Lilywhites will travel to Drumcondra with confidence flowing through their veins.
“I wish we could play Shelbourne tomorrow!” he said with a smile.
“Shels will be tough as they’re on a good run and they’re never easy to play against but we’ll go there with a great belief and feel that we can get three more points.”
