Greg: We're Not Groggy; Ucd V Dundalk, Belfield Bowl, 7.45pm


Byline: PAUL O'HEHIR

GREG BOLGER is confident Dundalk will bounce back from their Setanta Cup heartbreak and launch a European assault.

So much of the Lilywhites' momentum this season was generated on the back of their swashbuckling run to the final of the cross-border tournament.

Wins over Belfast giants Linfield, Glentoran a n d Cliftonville saw the Co Louth club on the brink of their first major trophy since 2002.

"I've missed a lot of the season because of injury so I'm just eager to get on the pitch and put the disappointment behind me.

"It was my first senior final so I have a taste of it now and hopefully I can bring that experience into other games." Tonight will be Bolger's first time facing UCD since he left the Dublin club at the end of last season.

He was one of the Students' key men last season before the spine of the team broke up and went their different directions.

Ciaran Kilduff is now at Shamrock Rovers while the McMillan brothers, Evan and David, are at St Pat's.

Bolger actually joined Sporting Fingal first but when the club folded he was snapped up by Foster who is a long-time admirer. …
