Our Cup dreams ended in a 3-0 nil away loss to Shamrock Rovers last Friday night. The score line was a bit harsh on a battling Town side in a game played in front of about 2,000 supporters, many of them travelling up the M4 for the occasion. Some Rovers fans were hoping for an other First Division team in the next round but good luck to the Hoops whoever they draw. Tony Cousins fielded a strong team which surprised a few Town supporters. Some then were pointing to two losses in a row but quite frankly, nothing can be read into those results with two totally different competitions in question. Shels drew their game and will have a replay before we face them later in the week. Again, a few were hoping before the game that we wouldn’t be in that position which of course increases the injury and fatigue risks. As the cliché goes, it’s a case of putting it behind us and focusing on a much more important game this Friday night.
