    Rovers v Bohs offers Rovers the chance to pull level at the top (almost ) and consign the bad start to History.
    On the other hand if Bohs could win and open up a 7 point gap it will be hard to get past them and build a lead before Europe kicks in which i think is critical if we hope to win the league.
    Derry have a tough game going to a decent Drogs who if anything are below where their performances deserve, but a win is a must youd think to rebuild morale. For some reason i think Cork can get something agaisnt Pats and they need to start to show something.
    If Galway beat Waterford the league is surely heading west, will be a hard fought game in front of a huge crowd

    Edit: Hearing now Manus is out for a few weeks, hopefully Pohls saving the peno against Derry will give him a boost for the matches ahead

    Big game for Derry this week to stay in contention with the top two at the current moment. Whelan out and adds to our growing list of players on the injury list. Higgins needs to find out what his best team is at this current moment in time fairly quickly. Feel like its well into the season now and all I have heard so far is Derry havent hit their groove yet. If there is another level for this side to go up then it would need to happen now.

    Not sure how I want the Rovers/Bohs game to fair out. a draw or a Rovers win potentially might be the best scenario as if we win then it closes the gap at the top a bit. Cant see Bohs giving Rovers the same respect that we gave them though and believe it will be a much tougher game than they had on Monday.

    Cobh scored after only 3 minutes. Kerry need to target boring clean sheets.

    Agreed, but of all the venues for that to happen, United Park may not be the one. It's been three years since we won there and Drogheda in general are a bogey team for us.
    Usual thoughts that if we score early, we should be ok. If not, it'll be a horrible slog of a game.

    Could be any score in Turner's Cross. Neither side can defend to save their lives and are only being bailed out by some interesting interpretations of end product.

    Great game in Tallaght. Very entertaining half of football. Rovers started very strong, a couple of decent chances and a few nice passes from Byrne but Bohs have really grown into it and look fairly comfortable at HT. Great team performance, Coote probably the pick of the bunch for me, Kirk and the two Poles too. We've had a lot of set pieces (so many corners!) and will be disappointed not to have made more of them. Afolabi has looked a little isolated at times, if we can get the wide supports a little closer to him we'll create some chances. Pohls save from Kirk was excellent (best chance of the game). I think Clarke has been outstanding for Rovers too.

    Definitely offside. Said it at the time. Thought it was a peno for us in real time but wasn’t as sure after the replay.

    Disastrous couple of weeks for Harps,very much look like a bunch of kids playing against grown men,dont have a squad to cope with any injuries at all,roll on June to get some more bodies in.......
    Big win for Galway against Waterford aswell,back out to 10 points now and hard to see them not going up automatically ......

    Much needed win. Defending was optional in the first half for both sides. Cork's first in particular was horrible from both Lewis and McGrath. We were much better in the second half. Held on fairly comfortably after we took the lead as Cork created nothing in the 2nd half. Lots of improvement need but a good start for Daly.

    Was going to type up a few thoughts but fck it. Game was gifted to them. Hennessy and his crew botched the big calls.

    Once again the prciks in the middle will take the attention. The occicials should be retrospectfully punished, no games for 5 weeks. These kind of mistakes can't be let go. I don't particularly like Crawley but even he agreed and for the peno too

    How can we continue to have refereeing performances like that. Killing games. Absolutely sick of it.

    The peno call was ridiculous. And the total arrogance then when anyone disagrees with them.

    Woejus refereeing in Tallaght. Being 37/53 in coefficients ranked European leagues translates directly to the standard of technical decision making of our referees and linesmen. VAR is badly needed, but will never happen most likely.
