thumbnail Hello,

The Bit O'Red forward has played down his Player of the Month award and says that winning the league is the main objective this season

After picking up the Airtricity League Player of the Month award for August, Sligo Rovers striker Mark Quigley admitted that while he is happy to win individual awards, he is more concerned about winning the league.

The Bit O'Red striker was awarded the Player of the Month award after an impressive month for the west coast club but stressed that league honours mean more to him.

"I've been in decent form recently and had a good run in the team which I think has helped a lot," Quigley told sligorovers.com.

"Obviously it is a team game but it's nice to pick up individual awards as it shows that you have been doing well. But the main thing that I want to win is the league, which would be great for the team," added the former St Patrick's Athletic forward.

The Bit O'Red currently lead the Airtricity Premier Division by six points, enjoying a game in hand over second-placed Drogheda United and Quigley is looking forward to the upcoming tie against Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds.

"We go into every game wanting to win and that won't be any different on Friday," he said. "We want to keep this run going right to the end of the season," concluded Quigley.

Sligo Rovers face Bray Wanderers in the Airtricity Premier Division tonight, Friday September 21. Kick off 19.45 BST.
