Sean Gannon believes Bohs’ determined display against Dundalk on Friday night shows how badly teams want to take his side down.

Unbeaten domestically since May’s Setanta Cup final, the Lilywhites are certainly the form team and there to be shot at, as a result of their excellent run.

“We knew we were in for a tough game because they have good players and on top of that, you throw in that everyone wants to beat us so it made it difficult. Teams are desperate to beat us,” he said.

“The two goals they got were right in the top corner and it is strange to see two like that in one game.

“We didn’t panic being behind, we have did it before, and we showed our character once again.”

He also praised the contribution of Dundalk’s attacking talent, pointing to the fact that his side could introduce a deadly marksman like David McMillan as evidence of their squad strength.

“A game is never over until its over. We know that we will always have a chance of getting goals and have some great finishers at the club,” the full-back added.

“Dave came on and did unbelievable. The header and the second goal were different class and he has scored goals for us all year so it just shows the strength of our squad that we can bring him on and he does that.”
