Cork's 'class' delights boss
CORK City boss John Caulfield believes that his title-chasing side have added a touch of class to their panel in 2015.
With leaders Dundalk not in action until tomorrow, today is a chance for second-placed Cork to close the gap on the table-toppers, John Caulfield's side hoping for a very Good Friday at home to Derry City.
Cork had to work hard for their last win, 1-0 away to Bray Wanderers, but boss Caulfield is pleased with what he's seen so far.
"I think in the two home games so far we have been very entertaining and I think our crowd understand we have a very good, passionate team. Last year we had a gutsy team, but I think this year we are gutsy with a bit more class about us," says Caulfield, delighted with the backing his side - unbeaten so far in 2015 - have received.
"Since I took over, we have received tremendous support. We have a great fan base and a lot of people came back to support the club. People have to trust me that we are working hard every day and putting the team out every week to win matches. We are hoping to have a huge crowd, possibly even bigger than anything we had last season," he added.
"Our support is phenomenal, the atmosphere in The Cross is unique.
"The crowd are coming in early, they are there for the warm-up and you sense the noise and the atmosphere around the ground.
"I think it does make the difference and the team has responded to it."
