    All 3 games in the Premier have a lot riding on them but Pats v Dundalk is a real 6 pointer between them.
    If Dundalk win they go 9 clear with a game in hand and virtually guarantee European qualification as well as keeping up a title challenge.
    With Rovers having minimum 6 more weeks of Europe a win keeps them in touch.

    Cork Galway the big one in Division one if Cork win they go 4 point s clear but they still have to go to Galway again so its not quite a league decider.

    I didn't realise until last week (I think sbgawa hinted at it) how bad Dundalk's away form is.

    They've dropped four points at home all season, and only won twice away from home (Harps and Derry). Second best home form and seventh away from home. That pitch must be paying for itself.

    A Pat's win would really open up the battle for second. At the other end, wouldn't be hopeful of catching up on Harps' goal difference this week. (I'm assuming we're both going to lose)

    They picked up a point in Inchicore they should never have got , Pats the best team on the night and missed a few sitters ( take a bow Doyler )

    It's hard to know what to make of the away form. We set up the same, look to attack, have dropped silly points like drawing with UCD after being 2 up, last gasp penalty given away in Tolka. Any mention of the pitch being the difference, for us would be an excuse, for teams coming to Oriel is in their head even before a ball is kicked. Its not as if players have never experienced these surfaces as new or a rarity. Just the mentioned 4 points thrown away would have put a different complexion on the table and with the game in hand. There would at least some pressure on Rovers and going in to an arduous European spell.

    Were in almost the exact reverse position compared to our last game against Galway. Back at the end of May Galway had overtaken us after a few disappointing results and a win would have given them a 5 point gap. Similarly now Galway have dropped points lately while we've kicked on, and while a win would put us 4 clear with a game in hand (against Waterford), a Galway win allows them to leap frog us.

    The two games have also been mirror images of each other. Galway came to Cork, and their keeper was man of the match but they came away with a 1-0 win despite playing with 10 men for a significant portion of the game. We went to Galway, scored a worldy in a game we created virtually no chances in, had a man sent off and spent the last 30 minutes backs to the wall repelling crosses from deep with everyone in or around the box.

    A win wouldn't mean we have it wrapped up but it would make us the clear favourites for the run in and would take things out of Galways hands. One concern is that we have tended to struggle in the game after breaks. We played Stoke last week with most of our first 11 involved so hopefully not too rusty this time around.

    Rustiness aside we're in good form,and reacquired Coffey who should add goals. We also have key players returning from long term injury in McGlade and Walker. Mainly though we have added Britton and hopefully he can be the difference in the tighter games. Despite our large goal difference we have scored 0 or 1 goals in 8 separate games and that has resulted in 4 draws and our only loss.

    Yeah, we should have won the home game alright. I also thought we were decent enough in Oriel and unlucky not to get anything out of it. I’d say I’m hopeful of the win rather than confident. Would be a great 3 points to get.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    A near capacity crowd at the cross tonight. Weather is great, so all set up for a great game. No place like it on a night like this. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint and is a game worthy of the occasion. A win for us here would be massive.

    Very interesting to see what type of eleven starts for Bohs tonight. No Devoy and you'd assume most of the new signings will be starting. John O'Sullivan is certainly saying all the right things in the media anyway.

    Pat's leading - Doyle set up Doyle whose shot went in off Boyle.

    For all the criticism of him (much of it no doubt justified), Eoin is second in the goalscoring charts and has two more than Hoban. It'll be interesting to see if he can get Pat's past Mura

    Comical second goal for Treaty. Two poor sides, Bray are awful, Treaty are industrious. Can't see any chance of progression at Bray until Devo is gracefully retired by the owner, which is unlikely, as he brought him with him from Cabo, despite their abysmal record under Devo. I've said it before, it's a job for Collie ONeill, but with his history at Cabo, that's not likely. Besides, I retain a teenie bit of hope that Collie may be back at the The Bowl next season (despite Collie outing them for trying to force him to play the son of a board member) maybe time will be a healer !
