'We're a point closer and it will be nice to win the league back at home'

Cork City’s Kieran Sadlier is hopeful they can finally end the title race at Turner’s Cross on Monday.

THE BUS LOADS of Cork City fans who travelled to Dublin yesterday in the hope of seeing their team crowned champions were denied a title-winning party.

Bohemians held the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division leaders to a 0-0 draw at Dalymount Park, and with Dundalk winning at home to Bray, the Leesiders must still pick up one more point from their three remaining matches.

“In the first half, we did well,” Sadlier told The42 last night. “We had chances and started really well, but in the second half we didn’t really perform.

“Overall, we’re a point closer and it will be nice to win it back at home.”

The visitors had a clear penalty waved away midway through the first half when Bohs goalkeeper Shane Supple brought down Karl Sheppard inside the area.

“It looked one [a stonewall penalty] from where I was as well,” Sadlier added. “You get some decisions and not others but that’s the game.”

On Monday night, John Caulfield’s side host Derry City at Turner’s Cross — where they just need to avoid defeat — and Sadlier is confident they can finally wrap up the league.

“If you look at the bigger picture, it was a hard place to come but we had a great following here again tonight,” he said.

It would be great to win it at home on Monday. The way it’s turned out, we only need a point but we want to go and get three.”

Since arriving from Sligo Rovers in July, former Ireland U21 international Sadier has slotted into the team well and made 10 league appearances.

“It took me a few weeks to settle but I’m really enjoying my football now,” the ex-West Ham academy player added.
