Keith Long has challenged Bohemians to return to the level of consistency that saw them surge up the table when the season resumed at the start of August.

Four wins from four last month saw the Gypsies move up to second in the table, something few would have predicted at the start of the season.

But it has been a different story in September so far as Bohs lost the Dublin derby away to Shamrock Rovers a fortnight ago before succumbing to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Waterford last week.

Long said: “We want to reach a consistent performance level week on week. Last week we fell short of what we expect from ourselves.”

Goals from Danny Mandroiu and Kris Twardek gave Bohemians all three points when these sides met at Dalymount Park in February.

But Long knows it will be more difficult this time around against Liam Buckley’s side, who are unbeaten in five league games now.

He added: “We will need to be better than we did last week against an inform Sligo.

“We want to put in a positive display and bounce back from the disappointment of last week.”
