James Stephens Secretary Niall Connolly says the start of both halves in last Sunday’s drawn encounter against Carrickshock is a source for concern.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of this weekends replay, Niall is hoping the momentum from their fightback last Sunday will be an advantage come the replay.
“Generally you do feel that those kind of games, that the team that battles back certainly would have the momentum going with them the next day and hopefully that will be the case, and that will be the case for us now the next day.
“I suppose one of the things we will have to look at the next day will be the way we opened up each-halves at the start and immediately after half-time.
“We seem to be caught a little bit flat maybe for the first couple of minutes, but again we were delighted with the fact we battled back into the game,” he said.
