    This pitch is absolutely horrific.

    He got a little mugging, but we deserved to win, very good Finn Harps performance I thought, but a few limitations exposed, too reliant on set pieces, no final ball and no obvious striker.

    Enjoyable second half in Oriel.Pats should have been 2-0 up and Dundalk should have scored three in the last 10 mins.

    That went from Dundalk getting a draw being a robbery to us getting one being a robbery somehow. We were comfortably enough the better team until around the time of the equaliser and then it was suddenly desperation mode for us. Content enough with the point on balance.

    Sickener to lose it that way in Tallaght but a good reaction to the Drogheda game in terms of performance.

    Great effort by Longford undone by dodgy referring decisions. Still according to the commentator on LOI watch, the teams are playing each other again in a televised match on FRiday, so a good chance for revenge. Waterford and Dundalk were also playing at various stages of todays match

    I think you're being very kind to us, we could and should have lost by more, little in it in the first half but Sligo were well on top in the second....
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Rovers were awful in the first half today. A lot better in the second half, although there are still real concerns around creativity. It took a peno and a deflected long ranger to score and the Longford keeper wasn't tested much at all otherwise.

    One thing is absolutely certain, Finn and McCann do not work as a centre midfield partnership. I don't think either of them start in the best Rovers XI tbh.

    Dreadful, lazy performance by Rovers who looked like they assumed they were going to win the game and applied very little in the way of urgency.
    My god we really miss Joey O'Brien and his roaring and shouting, demanding the highest of players. Grace is a back up centro half at best now, and combined with Pico looking well off the pace meant we looked really porous at the back - Both Mandriou and McCann played poorly in my view.
    in fairness to Bradley he didn't mess about and the changes at half time meant a more direct, forceful approach from Rovers, but it was a bit haphazard, and longford worked hard to close them down.
    Glad of the 3 points that puts us joint top of the table, but a lot of work needed to be able to beat better opposition.

    Still struggling to recover from loss of Jack and very late loss of McEneff .... still despite that are top of the league this evening albeit alphabetically .... we’ll get better and once we’re in the mix come July , then Towell hopefully will make the difference

    Sick not to have left Oriel with the 3 points. Should’ve gone 2 up with a few good chances before dundalks equaliser. Brilliant piece of defending by Barrett at the end to stop Dundalk getting the smash and grab win.

    Forrester not for the first time this season was the best player on the pitch.

    Kenny made the difference, his goal is a real gem, he hustles a clearance making I think the left back and then the centre half unload a little quickly, then folllows in at cruising speed, then dosses, sees the keeper relax then accelerates and makes him panic. I don't know how good Kenny is ,but he doesn't lack for confidence.

    Harps were pretty dreadful tonight I thought. It was our poorest performance of the five, by a long way, and probably the poorest we've played since about August last year.

    Yeah thought Harps were very poor. We were also poor first half but much the better team in the second. Even though McGinley made a howler for the only goal he also pulled a number of good saves.

    You referring to Harps or Sligo there?, because Harps have the leagues top goal scorer 4 goal in 5 games this season and think its 6 in his last 10 games including last season.

    Athlone Town absolutely flying. Must have signed these lads using pandemic payment.

    How is Jaros doing in goal for St. Pats?
