TIME TO TURN A PERFORMANCE INTO A RESULT
“We’ve had some up and down performances, especially at home,” Alan Murphy told www.galwayunitedfc.ie
“We probably started off with a shock performance, everyone externally would’ve expected Shelbourne to wipe the floor with us in terms of their budget and their off-season additions.
“It’s been a bit up and down since then, but I think we’ve been unlucky at times not to get results. It’s important this weekend that we try and turn that performance into a result.”
PLAYERS PUT THEIR HANDS UP IN WATERFORD
“We had some good performers in Waterford on Monday, that’s what the squad needs. We’re in search of a home win and we need that competition and freshness.
“This First Division campaign is going to be extremely tight. There’s going to be upsets every week.
“We’d like to add ourselves into the mix and we’ve been in and competing in every game, but some haven’t gone our way.
“We’re growing from the bottom up as a club, we’re trying to give players experience and also coupling on that we’re trying to get results also.”
Alan Murphy has fresh injury headaches to contend with ahead of the Limerick game.
Conor Layng (cruciate), Iarfhlaith Davoren (calf), Kevin Horgan (abdominal), Ronan Asgari (calf) and Ivan Gamarra (ankle) are all sidelined.
