    Tuesday 20th (all 19:45)

    Longford v Finn Harps
    Drogheda v Shamrock Rovers
    Derry v Dundalk
    St Pats v Waterford
    Bohemians v Sligo

    Every game Tuesday has a sub plot beyond the 3 points.
    Chance for Harps to put a big gap between themselves and Longford
    Rovers need to find some convincing form in a place that doesnt suit their game
    Huge game for both Derry and Dundalk who really need to kick start their seasons.
    Pats Waterford , Can Pats win and show title credentials or will a Waterford side that have been a bit unlucky so far show soemth
    Bohs need a result to keep in touch (with the derby up next)but for Sligo a win would bit like PAts show they have what it takes.

    Although all the talk is of Fillipo leaving DFC youd wonder after an improved performance last night will Bill persuade him to stay for the next fixtures Derry, Longford, Drogs , Waterford 4 wins and the world looks very different

    I'd imagine this is exactly why the crackpot chairman wants him gone now. Could be trickier to justify if they win their next four.
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    I was talking about Harps performance on Saturday night.

    Well we have one of (if not the) most in form forward and most of out 2021 goals have come from open play, indeed a number of those against us have come from set pieces

    True enough there is a striker in form and that's what surprised me during the game. 60 seconds to take a long throw in and almost playing for the the draw straight from the off. Sometimes needs must, I get that, but think Ollie the Oracle got tactics wrong for that game especially given Harps form and squad this season.

    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    Looking forward to tonight. Really think Drogheda have a good chance of getting something from this game. Narrow pitch won't suit Shams and we've been very solid at the back so far this season. They will need to improve massively from the weekend if they want to head home with 3 points.

    Let's just hope that the 2020 Champions Shamrock Rovers will be able to raise their game to be competitive against newly promoted Drogheda eh.
    Really miss the away trip to Drogheda, a quick trip up the road, few pints in the windmill and into the cowshed to shout on the Hoops. I see Deegan has continued to go round kicking people on the pitch to justify his position in a team.
    Enjoy the game.

    Always enjoyed going to Utd Park over the years. It's been a fairly happy hunting ground for Rovers, and the shed is always good for a bit of atmosphere. Watching these games on a ropey stream with horrendous commentary is really starting to grate.

    Wait and I tell you, I haven't seen any of Finn Harps goals this year (except Webster's last minute strike) my comment and I repeat this was based on what I saw Saturday night.

    Another Abibi special in the Brandywell I hear?

    Dundalk's player scouting has been about as bizarre as any LoI club ever I think.

    Comfortable for us. Outside of the Derry game we're making a bit of a habit of not killing games off when we have the chance to though which I hope doesn't start biting us more often than it already has.

    Darragh Burns is looking a real prospect as well.

    Well what can ye say, no luck at the moment. Keeper looked to fluff the equaliser (see on replay in due course). Zahibo is a big lad but wont be winning any sprints. Chris Shield was absolutely immense, practically getting on the end of his own throw in at the end. Cant agree that a draw was a fair result but desperation really is kicking in and becoming a monkey on the back. Seen enough though that a decent manager can do something.

    Turgid but still dug out the win - overall deserved the win but need to cut out the errors and speed up our play as playing at pedestrian pace too much of the time

    Rovers deserved it on the night but Drogs worked hard and if they had held on we could have few complaints.
    Thats two injury time winners in a row, big extra 4 points

    Rovers really struggling with creativity and there's a huge Byrne and McEneff shaped hole in the centre of the park, but not playing well and winning ugly is always a good sign for a side.

    Poor game in Longford,Harps had the the better chances but didnt well play well,Longford offered very little for being the home team both keepers had very little to do tbf,but 11 points after 6 games with 4 of them away is a solid return for us,2 tough home games coming up for us though.....
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.
