KIERAN Brennan says yesterday’s big win over table topping Cappry Rovers has put Castlefin Celtic back in the Premier Division title race.
Goals by Raymond Foy, Kieran Friel and Ronan Tourish gave the defending champions a 3-1 win at Parkview.
With Kilmacrennan and Kildrum drawing at the same time, Castlefin are firmly back in the shake-up.
“That was must-win to keep us involved at the minute,” Brennan told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“It’s enough to keep us ticking over anyway. We had to go in with a lead. It would have been very hard to come out there at 0-0 and even one goal probably wouldn’t have been enough.”
Foy and Friel had Castlefin 2-0 up at the break with Cappry rocked by the sending off of the influential Paddy McNulty.
Brennan said: “Losing today would have meant we’d be out of it. We had to win. A draw was out of the question.
“We’ve been in this situation before. Games in hand aren’t points and there are plenty of good teams in this League.”
