Patrick McEleney shows exactly why he is so highly-rated with superb solo run and finish

We could watch this goal over and over again.

PACE, CLOSE CONTROL and a delicious chipped finish, Patrick McEleney’s solo effort during Dundalk’s 3-0 win over St Pat’s on Saturday underlines why he is so highly-rated.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed a fine start to the season — scoring four goals in five league outings — and all of his attributes were on display at the weekend as he ran riot at Oriel Park.

With the champions leading 1-0, McEleney collected the ball in midfield before coasting past four red shirts and applying an outrageous finish up and over goalkeeper Conor O’Malley.
