9-GOAL THRILLER

Time is running out to sign up for the 9-Goal Thriller fundraiser. Deadline for signing up is this Saturday (August 17th). Tickets cost: €25

NINE-GOAL THRILLER?

The new 9-Goal Thriller game is a fundraiser brought to you by the Bohemians Last Man Standing team.

READ MORE

This game is simple. There are 20 tickets available for sale at €25 each. Each ticket represents a team from the English Premier League.

When all 20 tickets are sold, the teams will be drawn at random and assigned to players. The first team to score exactly nine goals within consecutive games wins the prize.

It is NOT the first team to score nine goals. For example, if Everton start their game and have seven goals scored in their previous games and they win 3-0, the player assigned that team does not win the prize.

But if they win 2-0, then they will be the winning team.

If two teams both reach the nine-goal point after the same amount of games played (kick-off time is irrelevant) then the next team to reach nine goals wins. The winning team must have a unique goals scored column of nine.

If no team reaches nine goals then whoever gets to 19 goals (then 29 etc) under the same criteria will be the winning team.

50% of the pot, €250, will go to the winner and €250 will go to Bohemian FC.

Any questions can be emailed to lastmanstandingbohs@gmail.com. Many thanks for supporting this fundraiser.

Cork City 1 Bohemians 0

CORK CITY 1 BOHEMIANS 0

Danny Morrissey scored a dramatic injury-time winner for Cork City as they saw off Bohemians 1-0 at Turner’s Cross on Friday night, writes Extratime.ie‘s SEAN GEARY.

The win, Stuart Ashton’s first league match in charge, eases any relegation worries City may have had but it was another worrying loss for Owen Heary’s Bohemians.

Bohs remain bottom of the league but results elsewhere went their way and they still lie only two points from safety.

“THE LADS ARE HURT, BUT IT’S GOOD HURT”

CORK CITY v BOHEMIANS (Turner’s Cross, Friday August 9th, 7.45pm)

Bohemians go to Cork hoping that the “hurt” of last week’s defeat will spur them to higher levels of performance and concentration.

Manager Owen Heary has been working the team hard on set-pieces after conceding goals from corners and a free against UCD last week.

“The lads are disappointed and feeling hurt. But it’s a good hurt. They know they did well, even if they are disappointed at conceding those goals,” he said.

“The training has been high-tempo because of the frustration. They know they are well capable of winning games, if they can eradicate those mistakes.”

Heary takes hope from his team’s performance. “We created chances, we got a lot of bodies forward, and UCD never threatened us in open play.

“We scored early on, we were in control of the game, and we had another chance soon afterwards. If we had got the goal later to go 2-all, I’m sure we would have gone on and won the game.”

The caretaker manager, also one of the league’s most experienced defenders, has been addressing the team’s problem of “not reacting to the second ball” when the first attempt on goal has been defended.

“It’s a mental thing, being determined that you’re not going to let the man you’re marking score,” he said. “That’s the difference between the teams at the top and teams at the bottom. The teams at the top are quicker to react and make sure the opposition don’t get on to the second ball.”

Last March in Turner’s Cross, Bohemians went ahead when Heary was first to a Ryan McEvoy corner at the near post. But Bohemians could not hold the lead, losing 2-1, and the scoreline was the same when the teams met in May in Dalymount Park.

Cork have lost four of the players who featured in those matches and, like Bohemians, changed manager following a run of poor results. Friday’s match will be Stuart Ashworth’s first league game in charge.

Heary knows Ashworth as a “good manager” through the under-19 league but he is hoping Friday’s opposition don’t get the new-manager bounce, that has been observed elsewhere in the league.

Midfielders Dave Mulcahy and Ryan McEvoy return from injury but Chris Lyons (bruised ribs), Andy Mulligan (hamstring), Stephen Doran (ankle) and Keith Buckley (suspended) are not available.

Heary is confident his players’ efforts will yield results. “The fans could see last week that the players are working hard and playing for the shirt. We have to play to win,” he said.

“UCD ARE NOT AN EASY TEAM”

BOHEMIANS v UCD (Dalymount Park, Friday August 2nd, 7.45pm)

Bohemians begin the last cycle of league games with a match that could change the look of the bottom third of the league table.

A single point and a single goal in goal difference separate Bohemians and UCD, who have two wins each in the four games they have played against each other this season.

“UCD are not an easy team. Look at their results against [Shamrock] Rovers and how they could have been 2-0 up against Shels last week. Even when they went down to nine men, Shels only beat them 2-1,” said Bohs caretaker boss Owen Heary. “You can’t take them lightly. Martin [Russell] has done a fantastic job there.”

Heary is looking to the fans to help his side turn Dalymount performances into wins. He is looking for “that effort from everyone – myself, the players, the fans, the club as a whole” to improve Bohemians’ position.

“The fans were brilliant last week and you saw how the players celebrated the goal with them. You could sense that the lads were playing for the club,” said Heary.

“The players will make mistakes. But what matters is how you react to mistakes. If they get a positive reaction even when they make a mistake we can be all right.”

Last week’s draw against Drogheda United was encouraging, according to the manager. “We were without Derek Pender, Luke Byrne and Dave Mulcahy and Drogheda are a decent side, physically strong and well drilled. So, I was pleased to get the point out of it. It felt like a win at the end,” said Heary.

“We know from past games that, 1-0 down, we can drop our heads. The players showed great character. They bounced back, they didn’t give up and we scored a late goal, just as we scored late goals against Bray.”

When Bohemians and UCD met last in the league in May, Bohs were eight points ahead of the Students in the table, but went down 1-0 to an early goal in a feisty encounter that featured five yellow cards and a red.

The balance between the sides has changed as Heary takes his place in the dug-out for the first time since his appointment as caretaker manager. Graham O’Hanlon, coach of the under-19 team, will be at his side.

“Standing in the gantry you get to see every player and you have a better view than when you’re on the sideline. Against Drogheda I could see that we lost our shape once or twice,” said Heary. “Now I’m hoping that the lads will get positive encouragement from having me on the sideline.”

The manager was delighted at the crowd’s reaction to Anto Murphy’s return to the club but also at his former team-mate’s performance. “He went straight into defence, winning headers, winning tackles. He played some great balls and then he comes up trumps with the one throw that he had.”

Dave Mulcahy (ankle injury) faces a late fitness test for Friday. Ryan McEvoy has a recurrence of the ankle injury that kept him out for several games last month and he and Chris Lyons (bruised ribs) are likely to miss Friday’s game. But Shane Murray has trained all week following his ankle injury and is available.

Heary has brought in an additional defender/midfielder for the last round of the campaign. Daniel Byrne (20) has re-signed from Kilbarrack United, having previously been a member of Bohemians’ under-19 squad. Meanwhile, Zein Albehadlie, Conor O’Brien, Michael Scott and Santiago Miguel Falbo have been released from the senior squad.
