Goal-driven Flood lands award

ANTO 'Bisto' Flood says he's still hungry for more goals even though a second trophy has landed in his lap in the space of a few days.

Flood and his St Patrick's Athletic team-mates have been celebrating since the 2-0 win over Sligo Rovers two weeks ago won them the 2013 Premier Division title, and the 28-year-old added another piece of silverware in the last 24 hours as he was named as September's player of the month by the Airtricity Soccer Writers Association of Ireland.

In between those successes Flood came off the bench to score one of the goals of the season, allowing Pat's to come from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Derry City on Friday.

That took his tally of league goals for the season to 11 but with one game left, away to Cork City on Friday, Flood is still on the goal trail.



"Personally, I went into the weekend with 10 goals to my name and some way off the target I had of 15 at the start of the season. I want to get as many goals as possible," Flood said after he picked up his award, an honour which he dedicated to his team-mates.

"This award is really for the whole squad and the fans, both of whom have been brilliant to me. The aim now is to get as many points and goals as possible before the season end.

"We've a few celebrations in the pipeline for sure, there'll definitely be an end of season function for the club and the fans which will be great.

"There is talk of a night out in Cork too but really we are focused on finishing with as many points as possible, have no doubt."
