    Waterford v Harps is probably the big match of the weekend.
    Harps pull off a win and they are 7 points clear of Waterford and that's a long way back for the blues. Classic 6 pointer.
    Bohs and Rovers have a chance to make significant progress with two games this weekend or indeed to go backwards.
    I expect Derry to turnover Pats who have been flattering to deceive lately and given how Rovers finishing was so poor against Dundalk we may need the help.
    3 points needed against Sligo to steady the ship.
    First Division.........exciting playoffs coming up is the best i can do

    Is this the last round of fixtures with limited capacities?
    It's still mathematically possible for Athlone to make the play-offs, although they've played a game more than Treaty and Bray.

    You are 100% correct but the goal difference deficit they have on Bray is 19 goals so Bray basically need 1 point from their last 3 matches.
    They should get that (at least) this Friday against a Cabo team that are wojus

    Liam Kerrigan unplayable again tonight. UCD much better than Cork; another goal or two in this for us

    Three halftime subs for Cork, which is quite unusual, but it worked and Cork stifled us for the second and could have snatched a draw. Poor second 45 after a decent opening half though

    Harps were bad,bad tonight,managing to conceed 2 a man up sums it up well, gifted a way back into the game from a moment of madness by Brian Murphy aswell,Waterford were much better than us though.....
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Minutes to go and yer 5 points off 3rd place, Full Time and it seem a much bigger obstacle at 7pts. Outside of Rovers its dog eat dog season, when picking up points others around us do too. Huge win for Waterord, worrying for Harps, important for Drogheda, Sligo were up against it but that 3rd spot is very vulnerable. Derry already looking a better ahead of schedule under Higgins and Pats need to make some smart transfers for next season - preferably not all Dundalk players........

    Sligo were shocking tonight.
    Really should have been 6 or 7. Their fans streamed out at the end and rightly so.

    Sligo feel like they've been in freefall most of the season - how are they still hanging on to third?

    Meh we should have been one up with Matty Smiths chance. I think tonight shows where we are at. When have a decent side with some good young & experienced players but IMO need a goalscorer and as we stand are still a bit off pushing Rovers to the end in a title race. Id be delighted with second and keep building next year.

    Dreadful game in the RSC. Waterford wanted it so much more. Harps gifted them three goals.
    Brian Murphy could be looking at a lengthy ban as well for violent conduct. Surprised if he doesn't get three games at least.

    Waterford looked like the team with an extra man though. Just totally deflated after it. Long run up the road again after that.

    Sligo do feel like the have been on a long slippery slope but are picking up just enough points when clubs behind are taking points off each other. All things considered a point away to Bohs for us is ok, but injury time goals really make the lost 2 disproportionately annoying.

    Absolutely abysmal. Hard to believe wed had 3 pretty evenly matched games against Shams this season before that. 8 points from our last 11 league games now at this stage. Nowhere near good enough. Too many of our attacking players not trying or performing. McGinty is far and away the best keeper in the league thankfully.

    Pats and Derry at the Brandywell would’ve been a decent game for the neutral to watch I’d imagine. Could have been 4 nil at half time with Smith and Forrester both missing 1 on 1's with Gartside who was announced as man of the match as well as Smith hitting the post and Forrester hitting the bar. Never really got going second half however and Derry hit us on the counter well and held out defensively after that. Strangely don’t feel too disheartened after the long drive home as we're still looking really good for Europe with 7 out of 18 points likely to be the absolute max we need

    Mad game in the RSC last night. It looked like Waterford were in control after Junior Quitirna made it 2 0. Then a moment of madness from Brian Murphy let Finn Harps back into it. Waterford scored 2 superb goals on the break in injury time with Junior showing his class again to set up one and score another. Waterford had 6 points from first 15 games and 30 from 2nd 15 games which shows the improvement since Bircham and the new owner came in.
