Finn Harps Under-17 manager Declan Boyle would rather if his team made life a little easier for themselves – but he wasn’t complaining too much after a 1-0 win over Dundalk yesterday.
“It was a struggle at times,” said Boyle, whose team couldn’t put the game to bed despite a glut of chances.
“We should have killed it and didn’t. it could have gone either way. Joe made a great save, but we were the better team over the 90 minutes. We were under a wee bit of pressure, but we’re happy with the performance because they did have three big games in eight days.”
After a League win over Monaghan-Cavan last Saturday, Harps lost 1-0 to Derry in the Mark Farren Cup on Wednesday night.
Boyle added: “They’re only young lads and a lot of them are coming out of playing 60-minute games to playing the full 90.”
