    Crap choice by RTE to be screening Waterford v Dundalk.

    Derry v Bohs is the stand out game on Friday, with both teams having a huge amount to play for. Waterford's season is over.

    Derry away a big ask given our depleted playing resources. Would happily take a point now !
    Will Pats finally win V shams ? Will need a lot of new manager bounce to get 3 points (bit early for shams to be fixated on their cup final) 😁
    Dundalk to win handy.

    Derry should win if they play like they did against Dundalk, Toss up between that and the Cork Harps match for biggest match of the night.
    Every other match irrelevant including all the first division matches tomorrow, although i suppose Pats have something to play for against Rovers.

    If there's two points in it after tonight, then the run-in will be interesting (certainly Harps v UCD in a fortnight will be). Our home form is actually quite reasonable; it our away form that's shocking (two 0-0 draws all season)

    Problem is we still have a few long-term injuries, and the two guys we signed off Sligo aren't allowed play against Sligo under the terms of the transfer agreement, which is a really weird one. Kerrigan has been scoring a goal a game so far (and Keaney has been getting a red a game, but that's a different matter!)

    RTE do this most seasons, jump on the club in the league title run in. Reason why they are showing Dlk v Rovers on Mon also, then again only two wins in these games for DFC will win the league, can still be done if we can match Rovers result tonight, then beat them on Monday.

    The reason why the Dundalk V Shamrocks game was re-scheduled for next Monday is the precise same reason why RTE is televising it - the possibility of the league win being finalised on the night.

    The fact that it is first v second adds some extra spice or curiously to see if Rovers have enough to delay the celebrations.

    Looks like there may not even be 1,000 at the RSC by game time.

    To be fair, there was latecomers. Probably surpassed that by now. Good game so far.

    Nope. Two stupid goals to give away, and we're not creating much against ten men

    I'm so looking forward to the possibility of winning the title on Monday night. The fact that it is possible to do so and give Rovers a few football lessons at the same time is doubly appealing.

    I suspect from Vinny Perth's post match interview that he might be more focused on the more important match to follow in the FAI Cup. Hopefully he is respectful and picks a first choice team

    Can Harps fans explain something to me? I'm very confused by their teams attitude to tonights game given the league table but maybe I'm missing something obvious.

    Cork City in 2019 are a bad team, and can be beaten. A draw tonight means that Harps need to make up 8 points to overtake City with just four games to go. A win tonight would have put serious pressure on us for the playoff spot but a draw all but ensures we will stay above that spot. Harps tonight seemed content with the draw, their keeper wasn't exactly time wasting but he was taking his time with every goal kick, and there was no real urgency from them. They were happy to sit with 10 men behind the ball allowing us to pass from side to side and look for an opening. Bar a five minute spell late on they never looked like scoring.

    We also never looked like scoring and missed yet another penalty but we kept looking for the winner when a draw suits us just fine. I understand they have some concern about UCD but they were 2-0 down at half time and the gap is now 6 points (or 7 when you factor in the massive goal difference gap). I really expected them to have a go at us in the second half but bar a five minute spell of corners and one very good shot from distance they never really challenged us.

    I'm delighted with the result, our remaining fixtures are not ideal for a team in a relegation battle, with Dundalk, Rovers, Bohs and Derry among our five final games as well as a home game to UCD. I don't see us picking up too many points but I can't see Harps doing enough to make up the difference in their final four games.
    We're also 10 points away from 6th which means we should safe from the Caramel Cup. I do not want to play in it, though if we qualify I'll definitely go to any games.

    Not one bit confused that a Ollie Horgan team would set up like that,the last time we played you at home we done the same and that annoyed me more because I genuinely thought Wexford/Athlone would have beaten you that night you were so brittle.
    To be very cynical the club badly need a play-off final with a big gate,not saying we set up to aim for a play-off but at the minute a good gate isnt the worst thing for us.........
