Bullish Buckley looks to turn tables on Bohs

THEY have failed to get a point or score a goal in two meetings with league champions Bohemians this season, but Liam Buckley is confident his Sporting Fingal side can match Pat Fenlon's men at Dalymount Park tonight.

Fingal head for Dalymount tonight still bruised by a surprise defeat at home to UCD last weekend, that 2-1 loss ending a four-game unbeaten run for Fingal.

"Facing the champions is a challenge our lads look forward to. There wasn't much between the sides in our last league visit to Dalymount, apart from a disputed penalty, though I've no complaints about their win at our place," said Buckley. "To be within a point of Bohs is encouraging. They may have dropped more points than usual so far, but I expect them now to make a serious charge for the title."

Buckley this week revealed the club's travel plans for their Europa League tie away to Portuguese side Maritimo, in Madeira, in two weeks' time which sees the Ravens spend a week on the island of Madeira.
