WATCH: Barrett bemoans lack of killer instinct following Drogheda loss

Limerick FC manager Tommy Barrett was happy with the performance from his side for the first hour of the 4-1 defeat to Drogheda United on Friday night but highlighted the missed chance from Kieran Hanlon at the beginning of the second half as a real turning point.

Limerick took an early lead as Clyde O’Connell powerfully headed home from a Shane Tracy corner. Limerick had chances through Lee Devitt and Hanlon to extend the lead but the Shannonsiders were pegged back through Jamie Hollywood before further goals from Jake Hyland, Mark Doyle and Ryan O’Shea gave Drogheda a flattering win.

Barrett feels that the game could have ended differently had they scored from a couple of big opportunities. “I thought we should have scored before half-time. Red (Kieran Hanlon) had a couple of big chances. We should have been 3 up. After the break Red definitely should have scored although it was a good save from the goalkeeper. That changes the game. If we went two or three up, we were out of sight.”

WATCH: Limerick FC manager Tommy Barrett says he has been proud of the effort from his players all season after Friday night's 1-4 defeat against Drogheda United.
