Kenny keen to pull the trigger on Sligo

DUNDALK boss Stephen Kenny is relishing next week's clash with reigning league champions Sligo Rovers, as Dundalk sustained their title bid with a win away to Shelbourne on Friday night.

The Lilywhites remain in second place, a point behind leaders St Patrick's Athletic, and Kenny is aware that next Friday's game at home to a Sligo side who are now back on track after successive league wins, could be crucial.

"It is amazing to think there has been an 18-point swing between ourselves and Sligo given that they were 12 ahead of us and we were six clear of them and people were labelling them 'invincibles' at that stage," says Kenny.

"But next week is such a big game for us and if we win it will put us in a great position."
