Having seen his UCD side come out on top in a thrilling end-to-end clash against Shelbourne at Tolka Park, Students boss Collie O'Neill could afford to make a light quip about the gilt-edged chances missed by Kieran Marty Waters.

“I was slagging Marty upstairs,” O'Neill told's Dave Donnelly after Shels’ 2-1 away win over UCD. “Not only do I think he probably ran over ten black cats in a previous life, I think he probably also robbed a church!”
