    Some nice 6 pointers this weekend.

    Waterford V Sligo Rovers in the race for 4th and a possible Europa spot.

    Harps V Cork to avoid the auto relegation spot.

    Bray V Drogheda for the FD and auto promotion.

    If Dundalk beat Sheriff on Thursday and are playing Dinamo Tiblisi (probably) for a place in the group stages on the following Thursday they might field a weakened side against Rovers even though winning would cut the gap to 6 points (if they win their games in hand).....but EL is mega millions.......priorities?
    Bradser had the same conundrum last year in the match last year where Dundalk won the title but chose to play a full strength team even though we had Bohs in the cup semi final later that week.
    I did'nt agree with him then, how would Dundalk fans feel about that?

    Harps v Cork is the match of the weekend for me.....if Cork lose i think they are down , and i cant see any of the first division teams beating Harps in a playoff (assuming Shels or Pats dont get overhauled)

    If we beat Sheriff then I think we should rest a couple of our more important players. The league is gone and I think we should be able to finish in the European spots. The potential play off game would become a huge game and the most important we’ve played in a while so I think everything should be focused on getting through that if we win tomorrow.

    Its always a hard one to decide. If we perfrom against Sheriff, win, then I would field the strongest team possible. Assuming it can be pulled back to withing 6 points, its one of those dangerous leads where one almost freak slip ups and yer potentially withing striking distance with a few games to go. It nearly easier to chase than keep out in front. GD is the fly in the ointment as whatever about dropping another 3 points after a poetential loss to Dundalk, I cant see it being much more than a single off day type thing. And of course Dundalk have to win every game. The title is done and dusted but Id like to see at least some pressure applied. I also tend to think, within reason, that players are better when games are coming think and fast rather than get stale by sitting out games. Momentum is everything!

    It would be a brilliant conundrum to have.

    In the scenario outlined, I'd imagine that the decision on those who start on Thursday would be based on fitness and recovery - but the squad is plenty big enough to replace most starters if required. In many ways getting more game time for players like Daniel Kelly, Nathan Oduwa, John Mountney, Jordan Flores, Aaron McCarey, Cameron Dummigan, Daniel Cleary and Patrick Hoban or Dave McMillan would actually be he most important consideration if a play off is looming

    While I think the club have every right to request the postponement, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will be granted. If it’s not I think Dundalk will have no choice but to rest players after a gruelling 120 minutes last night and a huge game next Thursday.
    I saw an article on RTÉ showing Dundalk’s potential fixtures should we get to the group stage and it would be fairly packed. I don’t even know where a refixed game with Rovers would be played so for that reason I don’t think the game will be postponed.

    Meh...it was always worth asking. Priorities change and its been suggested that reserves/youths will play SRFC. I disagree wih this in general but I undertand it.

    Rovers played Juventus on the Thursday night, got home early hours Friday morning, then beat Bohs on the Sunday lunchtime.
    False hope is worse than no hope. Ask Sligo.

    Surely won’t be postponed. No way a full time team shouldn’t be able to play Thursday-Sunday-Thursday. Common practice for any team in the Europa League.

    Watched about five minutes and had to turn it off such was the clash of colours.

    It’s terrible. I thought a Bohs attacker played it straight to a Derry defender there who then appeared to cross it into his own box. Completely confusing.

    Even if the ref got Bohs to change their togs it would be better. Not great if a person is colour blind. Bad decision by the Ref to have so similiar kits when the game is being filmed.

    I can't believe the two kits were allowed. Nonsense. Why can't Derry wear their red and white ? And why the hell are Bohs wearing a change strip at home ? When I think of the antics of Anthony Buttimer in the past, making teams change for alleged clashes that were nowhere near as bad as this.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Bohs changing to white jerseys in the second half apparently. A bit of sense that should’ve been there at the start.
