    They have conceded 11 goals in 12 games. Thats crazy. Especially as they have 5 clean sheets.

    Conceded 3 against Shels today, 2 against Waterford in both games against them so far. They will need to sort that for next season.

    We were absolutely desperate and they couldn't touch us. Its a terrible division we could possibly have it wrapped up with a series to go.

    In the off season we need a starting centre half, a full back, a keeper and a striker and we'll be comfortably mid table next year.

    Late winner for dundalk in the 93rd minute. Still, with us winning earlier it sets things up for a cracker on Friday

    Poor first half in Tallaght, but a much more enjoyable second half. Harps made a few changes in personnel and in formation and it worked a treat. Feel like Harps could have nicked a winner in the end, but point was probably a fair result given that Gallagher made a couple of fabulous saves for Harps.

    A game that took a while to kick into life, I'd imagine Rovers have will have a much different view of proceedings, but it was an enjoyable game in glorious sunshine, which felt a little strange in itself on a Sunday afternoon, touch of a Summer friendly about it.

    Missed the first 25 minutes or so due to mental traffic on the M7, and I actually missed Harps goal due to looking away for a few seconds, so, it's a bit annoying that I didn't actually watch either goal. I just about seen Scullys header hit the back of the net.

    Rovers are probably the most cynical, negative team I've seen play against Harps in a long time though. Fenlon is destroying that side, which should be much better given the players at his disposal.

    Have to wonder how much longer Fenlon has at Rovers. They seem to be going backwards fairly quickly.

    Ucd a bit lucky to get the win in Athlone. Town played well enough at times; enjoyable enough game, though the weather helps. But only 100 or so at it, and another 20-30 protesters watching though the fence.

    That is the second time this season that Wexford are unlucky to be beaten by Dundalk.

    This was no "park the bus" /"backs to the wall" performance by Youths. They won a fair share of possession in the middle of the park and tried to expose uncertainty in Dundalk defence by clever balls between the full backs and the centre backs.

    Easily the best team to come to Oriel Park this season.

    That must be the closest any team has come to you this season.

    Great point for Harps but Rovers are absolute rubbish.
    Can't understand how Fenlon is still there ?

    Cynical and negative are synonymous with Fenlon's style and this Rovers team are certainly cast in his own image.

    Killian Brennan and Gary McCabe represent his philosophy and attitude perfectly. I expect this pair to continue to rack up yellow and red cards as their season disintegrates further

    They were much the better team in the first half against us in Turners Cross.

    Fenlon looked like he was building something there last season.

    They gave Dundalk really tough games last season.

    However, Fenlon has not built on it and they seem to have gone backwards. I'm not sure that sacking him will improve matters. There appears to be deeper problems there.

    Very welcome point in Tallaght,watched it on the dodgy stream thing and only found out Rovers had ten men in the 87th minute lol Thought Rovers should have been 2 up at the break but we improved a lot Second half and could have sneaked it in the end,Ollie finally changed it up a bit and it seemed to pay off so a decent day all around after a horrendous couple of weeks.

    Great game in oriel tonight. Fair play to Wexford for having a good go.

    In saying that we had far too many below par performances Gannon, Shiels, Mcmillan and Rogers for the 2nd goal getting beat on his near post.

    Sets up mighty for Friday night against cork
    Long Live King Kenny

    Back four for us and Gary Rogers need to have words before Cork on Friday! Communication all over the place there today.
    Fair play to Shane Keegan and Wexford Youths whose direct manner of playing football certainly knocked us off our stride today.They ran out of juice last 25 mins though and we had enough fresh quality to just about deny them.Good game-great win for DFC.

    What a win today. 3 wins on the bounce now in all competitions. Hope we can continue to find the back of the net. Crazy auld League really, don't score in 6 League games and then score 5 against Pat's.

    Wexford were good and gave it a real go in Oriel. Paul Murphy looks like he could be a decent player if he lost 3 stone.
