Limerick aiming to give Rovers the Blues

AS THEY prepare for what will be their second-last game at the club's temporary home of Jackman Park tonight, Limerick FC hope they will have some points on board by the time they finally move into their spiritual home of the Markets Field.

The Blues take on Shamrock Rovers at Jackman Park today (6.30), but the club have revealed that their long-awaited move to the Markets Field will happen for their game against Drogheda United, on June 5th.

Home form has not been an advantage this season with a return if just two points form five games at Jackman Park, Limerick also suffering a League Cup defeat there. On the back of three-game losing streak, Limerick know they need to start picking up points to avoid being further adrift at the bottom.

"There is no point in feeling sorry for ourselves. We have got another massive game today and if we all start feeling sorry for ourselves and not positive, there's no point in playing," says Limerick captain Shane Duggan ahead of the visit of an in-form Rovers side. "We have to stay positive and believe that we can start picking up results soon. I feel we can."

Also in action today are Galway United, away to Bray Wanderers (5.45pm). "We've no fears going to Bray, but we know they have a strong side with a lot of Premier Division experience so we'll give them the respect they deserve," says Galway boss Tommy Dunne.
