Control the controllables.  In a relegation battle all any team can do is take care of its own chores.  Whatever is occurring elsewhere cannot be influenced.  On Friday evening Galway United gleaned a point from a lively contest with Drogheda United.  Fifty two miles away at the Carlisle Grounds Finn Harps were notching a vital victory, meaning Galway were eight points from safety.  Jeff Kenna wasn’t looking for a sympathy vote, though, insisting Galway can operate at this level.  "All we can do is look after our own shop. Finn Harps would have been thinking, going to Bray, that is a game they can win and other teams looking at our result will think it is a great point for us.  Obviously they are a further two points ahead, but all we can do is focus on our own game.
