The Extratime.ie Sportcast Episode 142 - Dublin Derby Dissection (Dinny Corcoran & Dante Leverock)Thu, Apr 25 2019
It’s a Dublin Derby Dissection on the extratime.ie Sportscast this week as Declan Marron and Dave Donnelly pick over the details of one of the most dramatic derbies of recent years.
The lads speak to Bohemians’ derby hero Dinny Corcoran after his goal settled the tie, while Sligo Rovers’ CONCACAF Gold Cup-bound defender Dante Leverock also joins on the line.
Corcoran scored at the second attempt after his penalty was saved by Alan Mannus – by which stage Rovers had been reduced to nine men following red cards to Trevor Clarke and Lee Grace.
The Portrane powerhouse gives us a breakdown of Bohs’ second 1-0 win over Rovers this season – they’ve now won six of their last seven meetings with the Hoops.
He discusses the form of Bohs’ young guns Danny Mandroiu, Conor Levingston and Danny Grant – and how their rapid progress is making him feel old at the age of 30.
Dinny talks refereeing controversy in the lead-up to the penalty – and Grace’s subsequent sending-off – and how such things balance out over the season.
We also briefly touch on his recent Countdown appearance, why he feels education is so important for developing footballers and for players like himself who skipped it when they were younger.
We’re also joined by Bermuda captain Leverock, who made history when he led the side to their first-ever Gold Cup, which will see him miss out on some key league games in June.
He discusses the easy transition to life in Ireland after spending years studying in England and incorrectly states that Sligo is sunnier than the UK.
The defender looks ahead to leading Bermuda into a historic first Gold Cup, going one step further than national legend, ex-Man City striker, Shaun Goater, under whom he worked at Ilkeston.
Dante discusses the playing style under Liam Buckley and the progress of young players like John Mahon and Liam Kerrigan, and he looks forward to the big adventure ahead this summer.
