JOL PLEASED WITH NEW BOYS

Martin Jol expressed his satisfaction with debutants Gareth Bale and Younes Kaboul after the 1-0 win against St Patrick's in Dublin.

The summer recruits joined our third newcomer, Darren Bent, in the starting line-up as Robbie Keane's first half goal handed us victory over the eircom League side at Richmond Park on Thursday.

Younes completed the 90 minutes at centre-back alongside Anthony Gardner in the first half and then Michael Dawson after the break, while Gareth departed 10 minutes from time after picking up a slight dead leg.

"You always want to win these games but we've now a number of players with 90 minutes under their belts and conditioning is the main thing we're looking for," reflected Martin.

"Gareth Bale and Younes Kaboul started and it was satisfying to see them both playing for the first time for our club.

"Gareth is still very young but he's strong, tries to go forward and I can see him developing into a top, top player. Younes Kaboul is an athlete and he showed me that he is a quality player as well.

"I thought we played okay, not more than that, but as I said the conditioning is most important.

"We trained on Thursday morning as well, a couple of lads played 90 minutes like they did at Stevenage and we won again, so that was good."

Martin was also quick to praise Robbie after his coolly-taken winner back on home soil - it had to be him, really. "Yes, it was typical Robbie - he's always there when you expect him to be there and that is the quality of a very, very good player," he added.
