Longford lost out to third placed Monkstown 27 points to 17 in the Leinster league last weekend.
The win sees Monkstown move three points ahead of Longford into second place with four matches to play.
Longford are not totally out of the running for second place/promotion yet.
All they can do is concentrate on winning their last four games versus DLSP, Suttonians, Tullow and North Kildare and see how the rest of the results fall.
Glenn Basketts side will now be hoping for a Towns Cup run, with Cill Dara visiting CPL Park on Sunday January 21st in the first round of tournament.
However, next up is a home fixture versus DLSP next Sunday.
“Opportunities don’t come around often, and this was an opportunity lost. We talked about these small chances to take the opportunity before the game, and we didn’t take it, Said the head coach Glenn Baskett.
“with DLSP coming to Longford next week we just have to look at where we went wrong, and why? Because DLSP wont give us the luxury of an easy get back on the horse game, we will have to be better than against Monkstown.” Explained the Head Coach.
