    Exciting week ahead.
    Harps could close the gap on Shels with a win and make the bottom two fight a lot tighter, Derry v Pats and Sligo v Bohs should be very competitive all need the points badly for different reasons.
    Potential banana skin for Rovers against a Waterford team with momentum, a win would take a bit of pressure off the Dundalk match.

    Busy weekend for the First Division , a pair of wins for anyone and they could break out of the pack and position themselves for automatic promotion.
    Real chance for Galway to muscle their way in to playoff hopes with two games against an out of form Cabo and Wexford.

    Its possible that the moving on of JS could disrupt Waterford momentum. For the benefit of the league () a Waterford win would be good. Elsewhere Pats badly need to pick up a point even to stop the slide. Sligo v Bohs is unexpectedly a European slot game. For all the slagging the 1st Division can get, it is often more intriguing that the Premier beyond a couple of clubs. There is merit to the number of potential promotion slots, certainly based on the last couple of seasons.

    I wouldn’t think Peter Cherrie is tossing and turning at night at the thought of us coming to the Brandywell. I didn’t think we actually played too badly against Sligo and should have won. We need a goal another blank and we would be heading into the beginnings of a crisis. It’s all very tight at the end of the table so neither side will want to lose this one.

    Cherrie is a great shot stopper, crosses that make him have to decide to whether to come and claim or stick is the weakness. With Kelly also now and his potential for getting on the end of a cross, that surely should be the tactic from O'Donnell. Pragmatism needed as much as playing nice football being in the managers plan.

    Listening to John O Sullivan on Cawleys call complaining about the lack of fight from Cork against Rovers and comparing them unfavorably to Harps who he said had ball players but also a willingness to compete
    Kenny Cunningham also on the Pod and showed a really impressive level of knowledge about the League with in depth tactical and formation analysis of several teams.

    Hard to see Cork based on that display picking up points against Dundalk this weekend and harps could get something off Shels.
    I have been assuming that Cork would get it together as i couldn't see them going down but that was a relegation performance last weekend.

    Cork v Dundalk off now after our win. Doesn't really do Cork any favours as they'll have to squeeze it in somewhere on their run-in.

    Why are dundalk postponing games, weren't they complaining that their squad was designed for more games?

    Dundalk donít postpone the games, itís the FAI that do it. We ask like every club is entitled to.
    I donít know if the Rovers game next week will be postponed or moved but it definitely wonít be on the Friday.

    it's difficult to get so many things incorrect in such a such a short sentence.

    The National League postpones fixtures, not clubs

    The league Champions are likely to fly out on Monday or Tuesday playing Moldovan s Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday in the Europa League Third Qualifying Round.

    Shamrock Rovers will just have to wait their turn with the Cork game re-fixed for later

    Sligo bohs game tonight should be a decent watch.
    Boez have started to wobble a bit in recent weeks and probably need a victory to stave off the chasing pack. One of which now appears to be sligo.
    You wouldn't have said that 3 months ago!
