Dunne in bid to shut out Bohs

CORK CITY boss Tommy Dunne believes that one of the most unwanted runs in the 2012 League of Ireland season will end at Dalymount Park tonight.

Bohemians take on Cork City at the Phibsboro venue with the worst scoring record in the country - Bohs have yet to score in their last seven games, five of them in the league.

Cork's problem is at the other end as they have at least managed to score - nine goals in six games in all competitions - but can't stop conceding goals.

"Something has to give in this game; either Bohs will score or we will keep a clean sheet," says Dunne, whose side are just a point ahead of bottom club Bohs.

"I watched their game with Shamrock Rovers and I thought they did quite well. They have a young team, but they looked very solid at the back and it took a moment of magic to break the deadlock."

"From our point of view, we need to be positive and also to keep things tight at the back. I am told that the pitch at Dalymount is not in the best of condition which will not help the way we want to play, but we will be going there looking to claim the three points," added Dunne.



St Ledger eyes winning run

SEAN ST LEDGER says that Leicester City can only save their dream of Premier League promotion by winning all their remaining league games this season.

Big-spending Leicester started the season as one of the favourites for promotion but, with six matches left, they're adrift in 12th place in the Championship table and needing a miracle to even make the play-offs. "I think we are capable of winning all six," he said.

"If you look at our squad it is one of the best in the division but, for one reason or another, we haven't done it this year. We have been inconsistent.

"But this is the business end of things. It is not a case of can we, we have to."
