Dundalk boss Stephen Kenny accuses Cork City and Waterford of ‘archaic' tactics in title race

Dundalk boss Stephen Kenny claims that rival clubs are living in the past by trying to put his team off their stride with pitch battles.

Kenny’s outfit remain top of the league table thanks to Friday’s 2-0 win away to Bohemians, Kenny keeping up his good record at Dalymount Park.

He says the quality of the pitch at Dalymount allowed both teams to play the right way but he claims other sides have tried to restrict Dundalk by not preparing the pitch properly.

“At least Bohemians cut the grass which is a basic requirement but it doesn’t happen any week we play. They cut the grass and watered the pitch because they backed themselves and that should be the minimum requirement,” says Kenny, his side playing again tonight, at home to Waterford.

“And every week we’re away, all that nonsense, even the top team, the top two teams we played against do that. That’s what you’re talking about: Cork and Waterford. Both of them, deliberately not watering the grass.

“Bohemians’ values have to be admired. We have to get away from archaic thinking from yesteryear which takes away from the quality of the product and the football.”
