    Big game for Rovers up in Finn Park against an in form Harps.
    Chance for Pats to make up a bit of ground at home to Longford if Rovers dont sneak the 3 points off Harps.
    Relegation 6 pointer between Waterford and Dundalk is a huge game for both in terms of pushing up and away from the bottom.
    Dundalk are 10 points off 4th place with two games in hand and need to start that run I've been talking about.....although after recent ..ahem .events.....a top 3 team winning the cup might not be the foregone conclusion it has become so 4th may be no good to anyone.

    The first division is done and dusted bar the outside prospect of a Paul Doolin inspired Athlone sneaking into the playoffs, can they follow up on beating Galway last week by going to Cork and winning?? with UCD playing Bray a win for Athlone and a positive result in the UCD match would have Athlone 5 behind a playoff place....Doolin certainly believes he can do it

    Bohs v Derry cancelled due to Derry international call ups, which means i guess that Rovers are down Pico to Cape Verde and Dundalk are down a couple as well

    Jaros called up to the Czech under 21s so hes missing for Pats.

    For our slim hopes of winning the league to stay alive we need Rovers to drop points before they come to Richmond in 3 weeks and we obviously need to win our next 2 games. A trip to Harps with a few injuries after a bad week, this will show us what Rovers are made of.

    It'd be just like Doolin to screw us over again...

    Two sides on good form lately, but we've a bad record against Bray the past few years, so not hugely confident.

    Pats just announced that we can have up to 2,500 at our game on Friday, 50% capacity. I'm sure it'll be the same for everyone this week. It will be great to see decent crowd numbers back across the league.
    Here on a technicality.

    That must mean that the requirement for social distancing is gone from events now.

    The wording is "Up to 50% (subject to appropriate protective measures including social distancing between groups, face masks etc)"

    Also 2500 allowed into the RSC, good to see such a potentially high crowd into the games this weekend.

    With respect to Longford this is the kindest fixture we could have had given the mess we're in with absentees. Hopefully we've enough to pull through, added attendance should be a help.

    We really struggled down in Cork on Friday with all the players missing, it looks like Bermo is out for this week now as well to add to

    Jaros
    Mountney
    Desmond
    Barrett
    Benson
    Smith

    And god knows who else will randomly pick up a knock in training.

    Seen a photo of Mounts on a Pats page with him all tucked up on a sofa and the leg in plaster and reminds me of a lot of the times he was the same @ Dundalk.
    The guy has absolutely no luck as far as injuries are concerned. really fine player at his best.

    We have our own injury problems as we head into the weekend - no Garts,McMillan,McEleney,Kelly,Val(transfered).... and of course we have a couple away on international duty as well. Dundalk are really running on fumes at this stage.
    Relegation type news about our squad.

    He done his cruciate on that poxy pitch in Oriel Park, he has been great for us this season.

    Duffy might be called up with the injuries but maybe a bit of old school loyalty to his former employer might get him left at home ....or join up Saturday morning as he would most likely be backup only anyway.

    Think we're missing Colm Whelan this weekend - he'll be in Dudelange, slightly appropriately. So that's a big blow for us in a big game.

    Well Micheal Duffy has been on SK's radar a long time and the timing is......... unfortunate for Dundalk.If he get's called he'll go no doubt.Zahibo missing out could actually be an addition believe it or not.It's a huge game v Waterford for us and thankfully some can travel to support.

    Moutney's injuries have more to do with the type of footballer he is with the physicality of his game. Biomechanics are a mess and he is still working on literally straightening himself out but at this stage it is what it is. Shows the importance of both a good medical and sports science set up at clubs and the need for youths, especially if in the elite category, to be assessed as soon as possible. The one and only good thing really about current artificial pitches is that it reduces the risk of ligament injuries with the reduced torsion caused by the turf IF the correct boots are worn and would be a very basic oversight if not. Muscular, Hip, back, arthritic type injuries are possibly a different story over time. Well maintained, watered, short cut grass pitches are always going to be preferred but a cabbage patch is a higher risk than even a poor fieldturf one so grass pitches should have as much scrutiny and rigorous testing.

    Lopes is away playing in WCQ for Cape Verde so will be interesting to see will we play with any defenders or will Bradley finally have his dream come true and play a keeper and 10 midfielders
