    Fixtures, 10th-13th October

    Both Dundalk and Cork with handy enough wins tonight against the bottom two, UCD and Athlone having men sent off would have certainly helped. Pats all but in Europe next season now. Limerick jump up two places, could yet finish in the top half. Bray probably safe from the play-off/relegation scrap now.

    Run-in for important things:

    Dundalk
    -Shams (h)
    -Bray (a)
    -Cork (h)

    Cork
    -Bohs (h)
    -Dundalk (a)

    Dundalk and Shams is huge of course, would like to see Rovers win just to make the title race as interesting as possible. Dundalk, going by results against UCD and Athlone, should be able to put Bray away without difficulty, so getting three points out of Rovers would seal it imo.

    UCD
    -Derry (a)
    -Drogs (h)

    Athlone
    -Pats (a)
    -Bray (h)

    If any of those two are getting a result out of those games, it'll be Athlone at home to Bray.

    Dundalk rover's game it's massive because it's the next game.

    One game at a time.

    Looking at the last ten games is depressing reading for Students in relegation fight anyway. UCD have drawn 2 and lost 8, and have a GD of -22. Athlone, in contrast, have 7 draws and 3 defeats, and have a GD of -7 in the same period. It'll be scrappy, but I'd say they'll have enough for a safe Bray.

    The win for Dundalk tonight means the worst case scenario for us is, it will go to the last day now.

    One game at a time for sure, but two more wins from 3 (and 2 at home) and it's over. We also have safety net of we can actually lose two and still win it, as mad as that seems.

    This was a massive win v Athlone. However it's just 3 pts. On to Monday now.

    Real bummer for Drogheda to lose so late last night. We know the feeling having run Pats so close last week.

    Karma. Any team who sets out be beaten, as was the case last week in Cork last week, gets what they deserve.

    The joke at the game last night was that we should all head off to Athlone v Bray on the last day of the season instead of UCD v Drogheda. We seem to spend most of the time looking out for Athlone's results anyway.

    What's with UCD though? They've never been stellar in the last few years, but they've usually had more fight than this.

    I imagine his 11 consecutive defeats when in charge of us gave ye a bit of cheer as well.

    Diplomatic answer is we've lost too many players. Down four defenders and three forwards on last year; can't afford that. We've no money, and now our average players (Morrison a prime example) are being nabbed.

    Doesn't help of course that Bray sign four players in the transfer window and don't pay them, while we turn down a former player or two who are now helping Athlone improve.

    Was at the Rovers UCD game the week before last

    To say UCD were poor was an understatement.

    To be honest it looked like a number of players were not at all trying.

    The attitude some of the players showed towards Callaghan and vice versa was shocking.

    Heard from more than one person that Callaghan had a real go at them at half time for a minute or two saying his job was on the line - and one of the players responded with "who cares " before Callaghan walked out.

    Are UCD paying players? I know this used to happen years ago; when they won the cup with Alan O Neill in goal etc, but I understood that team was made up of students and amateur ex-studends.

    That's worrying. And would entirely explain why the players came out so early for the second half, and then had the rest of their team talk on the bench with the coach.

    Dundalk should win this handy enough.... sure Rovers are terrible at the moment, easy 3 points for Dawk.

    I hope you are right, but I suspect that it will be a tough challenge.

    3 points from Rovers would mean that the league could be effectively wrapped up with either a win over Bray on Friday or a draw against Cork at home the following week.
