Caulfield issues title warning
LIMERICK FC 0 CORK CITY 1
John Caulfield has warned Dundalk that the best has yet to come from title-chasing Cork City.
The Leesiders boss stated: "People think that Dundalk have the league won, but we can't give up. Last year the same thing was said and we were there right to the end. I still think there's more in us and hopefully when we get into the second half of the season we'll show that."
Limerick manager Martin Russell found himself in the familiar position of trying to find the positives from a damaging result.
"We haven't got the wins but we've been knocking on the door. There's a massive set of games coming up where we'll have to turn those performances into results," he said.
A subdued Munster derby was settled in the 22nd minute when Billy Dennehy's cross found Karl Sheppard at the back post and the ex-Reading striker headed home.
