OLLIE Horgan wasn’t too keen to soak up the plaudits after Finn Harps recorded a historic win at the Brandywell last night.
Foley’s golden moment sealed a first ever League win on Foyleside.
“We had energy, we had bite, we had hunger,” Horgan told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“People when we win get carried away – we’ll do this, that or the other – and when we lose, we’re a disaster. We’re neither. We’re somewhere in the middle and the lads know that better than anyone.”
James Akintunde had put Derry in front in the first half, but Karl O’Sullivan brought Harps level before Foley grabbed the headlines.
Horgan said: “We went 1-0 down in Sligo and we couldn’t get back into it. The first goal in this League is huge and it’s very seldom that you turn it over. We’ve done that twice now and that’s a good sign of the lads. They’re in a very even keel, but there was no banging on doors. We’ve moved onto Bohs.
“Our focus is on Bohs now. They’ll do serious damage to some side soon the way they’re going. We just hope to god it isn’t us.”
Former Candystripe Barry McNamee had a superb game for Harps, his piece of magic opening the door for Foley’s winner.
Horgan said: “Barry also worked his backside off, he chased and harried and did the dirty work – which goes unnoticed with him.”Tags:
