Kelleher demands more from table-toppers Demons

UCC Demons may be protecting a 100% start to the Nivea For Men SuperLeague when they host Killester at the Mardyke Arena in Cork on Sunday but coach Paul Kelleher is adamant his side have plenty of room for improvement.

“We need to take our game to a new level from our last few performances,’’ Kelleher said. “A win is a win but we would rather not let a game be decided by the final few seconds on the clock and try pull away earlier.”

Kelleher, however, is wary of threat the Dublin side will pose to his table-toppers. “Killester are definitely being overlooked this season,’’ he said. “If we allow them to get on a roll they will be dangerous.”

Killester coach Darren O’Neill believes his side can emerge victorious on Leeside. He said: “It is a tough proposition coming up against a team that has yet to be beaten but we believe we can get a result down there.’’

UL Eagles take on newcomers, Dublin Inter in the UL Arena tomorrow having returned to winning ways last weekend with an impressive victory over UCD Marian.

“I am delighted with our performance last weekend and happy we are back on form,’’ UL Eagles coach Mark Keenan said. “Hopefully it will give us the momentum we need going up against Dublin Inter.’’

The other game tomorrow sees winless Moycullen travel to Dublin to take on UCD Marian while on Sunday DCU Saints take on Bord Gáis Neptune at DCU Sports Complex.
