Waterford FC midfielder Barry Baggley wants the Blues to continue their good form against Bray Wanderers ahead of the mid-season break next week.

The midfielder, on loan from sister club Fleetwood Town, was on the scoresheet again last weekend in a 6-0 win away to Kerry FC. The Blues got off to a flying start and ran out comfortable winners.

“It was tough to come down here. Kerry make it hard for any teams that come down here and the pitch can make it a bit tough.

“I thought we came down here, did very well and put on a professional performance and got the three points which was most important.

“It was so important to back up the Treaty United win in Monday’s game. Friday would have meant nothing unless we backed up on with a win on Monday. We’re just focussed on winning games and see where it takes us.”

The opening match between the sides earlier in the season  in the RSC was a tight affair, with the Blues eventually breaking down a stubborn Kerry side.

Baggley said the 1st half goals allowed the Blues the freedom to play…before getting on the scoresheet himself.

“Going in at half time took some of the pressure off us. The first game was a tight one and there were maybe a few nerves at 0-0 but having the cushion this time allowed us to really push on in the second half.

“I’m delighted to be back on the scoresheet too; it’s always good to chip in with a goal. I’m just focussed on doing my best every game; it’s good to get a goal from midfield.”

The Blues are in good form and will look to end the first half of the season with a win as goals and clean sheets help Keith Long’s side continue their chase of Galway at the top of the table, with the help of another large travelling Blues support.

“We’re on a good run and we want to keep it going. We’re scoring goals and we have five clean sheets in a row now too so it’s important we keep the run going so we can come back strong and in good form [after the break].

“The fans have been brilliant with us this season. Maybe one or two spells during the season we’ve dipped a bit, but they’ve really stuck by us at home and away and we’re doing what we can to repay that support.”
