DUNDALK manager Stephen Kenny is confident his team can carry on their excellent run of form when they face Premier Division title rivals Cork City at Turner's Cross tomorrow night.

The Lilywhites went three clear points ahead of John Caulfield's side following last weekend's results, where Cork lost out 2-0 to Bohemians at Dalymount Park, while Dundalk enjoyed a comfortable 5-1 victory over Bray Wanderers.

While happy with the application shown by his players, Kenny is aware that there are still plenty of games to be played. "There is still a long way to go," Kenny said.

"We are just focused on winning matches. We have to go to Cork this week. They've had a fine season.

"But we're in very good form at the moment. The players are working very hard and showing great attitude.

"It's the whole squad that are really applying themselves and it has coincided with us being on a great run and we want to try to continue that."

Galway FC have completed the signing of Paddy Barrett.

The 21-year-old defender has joined up with Tommy Dunne's SSE Airtricity First Division side after ending his spell with Waterford United. Barrett previously played for Scottish sides Aberdeen and Dundee United.
