Caulfield wary of Students revolt for Cork

CORK CITY boss John Caulfield has told his players not to expect a stroll in the park against a struggling UCD side in Dublin tonight.

On the back of a five-game losing streak, UCD are returning to the First Division unless they can turn things around in the last three games of the season and City fans will head for the Belfield Bowl expecting another win to keep up the pressure on league leaders Dundalk.

But Cork have only managed wins by a one-goal margin against UCD this season and Caulfield is wary.

"This is probably our most difficult game out of the last 10," says Caulfield.

"If you look at us, we have taken 20 out of 24 points since we lost to Dundalk; with six wins and two draws.

"Those two draws were against Athlone and Bray, two of the bottom three teams; games everyone expected us to take full points from.

"Our two games against them this year were a 1-0 win away and then at home, we were one down after seven minutes, we got a penalty to bring us back into the match and scored the winner with 15 minutes to go.

"Never in my history do I remember going up to UCD and smoking a cigar after 30 minutes of any match!"
