Dundalk midfielder John Dillon not worried about home form

The former Sligo Rovers midfielder has played down concerns that the Lilywhites have not won at home this season, taking the positives from the side's away form
Dundalk midfielder John Dillon remains upbeat about his side's form despite failing to register a win at home in the league.

The Lilywhites currently find themselves in third place in the league table, with 12 points from seven games. However, their 2-2 draw at home to Limerick on April 5 means that they are still seeking their first home win of the season.

Nevertheless, former Sligo Rovers midfielder Dillon was keen to accentuate the positives, noting that the side had come from two goals behind to secure the draw.

"It's the third time we've come from behind, so that says a lot about the team," Dillon told the club's official website. "Obviously we'd like to get that first home win but because we've won three away already, it isn't that worrying.

"We could be one of those teams that win most of our games away. There's nothing wrong with that."

He added: "We have played four very good teams at home and have another next week. Three of the top four have been to Oriel and we've competed well but we are hoping to get that first win and I'm sure it'll come soon."

Meanwhile, Limerick manager Stuart Taylor has dismissed speculation that Pat Purcell was being frozen out of the first team squad.

The 33-year-old Limerick captain has struggled to break into the starting XI since Taylor's arrival at the club, but the former Drogheda United midfielder quashed the speculation, insisting that the former Waterford United defender was 'going to play a massive part' in Limerick's season.

"Very far from it. There is a lot to come from Pat," Taylor told the Limerick Leader. "He's going to play a massive part. He's the club captain and he's got that experience to go and play games."
