McGrath skill 'Worth admission money' - Kenny

Dundalk boss Stephen Kenny has hailed the skills and tricks of playmaker Jamie McGrath and doesn't want the Meathman to change.

But he has called on the 21-year-old to add a clinical instinct to his game to make the complete package.

McGrath starred in Monday's 2-0 win over Waterford with his array of flicks and cheeky touches a joy to watch.

Kenny does not want the ex St Pat's man to take that out of his game. But he does want a bit more end product from a player who has come into his own in his second season with the club and has improved his physical contribution since joining.

"Work rate was alien to him, in terms of tackling," said Kenny. "He was a member of that non-tackling union in the midfield unit for a while. He is doing that now.

"Listen, if you paid your admission money, Jamie gave you value. He does things you very rarely see anyone doing but he's only scored one goal, the fifth in a 5-0 win. I think he gets his buzz from dragbacks in midfield and those quick feet. But in the end it's just a pass to a full-back or something.

"I'm not telling him not to do that. I'm saying add the rest. He needs the ability to time his runs into the box, his finishing needs to improve and his striking outside the box. This is what will elevate his status as a player."
