We’re on a fast learning curve, says Derry City boss Kenny

Derry City manager Stephen Kenny admits he doesn’t know if third place Athlone Town will come and attack his side at the Brandywell tonight.

The visitors, who are unbeaten after their opening three games in the Airtricity League First Division, sit just two points behind leaders Waterford United and because of that Kenny concedes he's in the dark about how Athlone will approach this evening’s game.

“I really don’t know, but I think we have to have the ability ourselves and break down whatever is in front of us and we must believe in ourselves,” said the Dubliner.

“We also need to have absolute conviction in what we are doing and I think we can do that.”

The Derry gaffer also believes his young side must learn fast if they are to stay in touch with the leaders after their defeat by Waterford.

“It wasn’t the result we wanted, I think Waterford adapted to the conditions a lot better than us.

“We also have to be apply ourselves and we have to learn quickly.”
