    Yeah its Avant card based in Carrick on Shannon. I worked for them when it was MBNA and was 7 years there. Carrick have a big support base that follow Sligo. Think a few Sligo rovers fans are still working there as when I was there there was a huge amount of people from Sligo working there that were Sligo Rovers fans!

    Proverbial game of 2 halves in Tolka,Shels much better first,Harps the second and could and maybe should have won the game,Shels played the last 10 or so minutes with 10 men and we didn't capitalize unfortunately....
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Another point t that could have been 3 for harps.
    Cork could be adrift if harps had a bit more luck in the last few games

    Killer instinct in the final third costing us again. We're dropping points where we shouldn't be really.

    Big Kogler was superb for Harps up front, but in an isolated role, he really needs someone running off him. Karl O'Sullivan should have been that player tonight arguably.

    Another vital point on the board for us though. Next Sundays game in Finn Park against Cork is massive.

    Good point for Harps, we were shocking in the 1st half much better in the 2nd, shels red card was a poor decision

    Itís all set up for a huge next weekend. The Harps v Cork game & our game v Shels are massive. If either pick up three points and we lose our game we are right in the mix.

    Hadn't realised how low Pats were and so close to the danger zone, if as suggested the above happens next week. Then again there are a number of clubs looking over their shoulder.

    Still think it will be big surprise if the auto relegation / play off is not anyone but Cork / FH, if there was hope for either, I would lean towards FH who have got some hard working results of late. They might sneak into 8th, but even if they don't avoid the play-off, I think they would be well placed to win it. Far too many games for FD sides in the multi play off before the final, plus they look stronger.

    I think the fact the first division is so tight is symptomatic of all the teams being pretty poor tbh.
    Can't see any of them giving a PD club a game

    It's possible Cork and Harps are that bad that there could be a match in it.

    But in general, yeah, the gap between the Premier and the First has probably never been this large.

    Harps didn't really have to get out of second gear to easily beat Bray in the cup..

    Rovers v Waterford sound is crap. Someone is using a bad audio cable. Simple fix.

    Rovers 11 points just required, or less if Dundalk muck up, to become Champs if Covid doesn't shut it all down first.

    Do you think so? They had a 5 minute spell but Rovers have been fairly dominant imo and should have been a couple up before they scored.

    Huge win for rovers tonight. Going to oriel knowing even if we lose we are a minimum 5 points clear as opposed to 2 with game well and truly on is a massive difference.
