Game crying out for Adorjan. Gannon needs more protection. Connolly off, shunt Jamie out to the right.

Dundalk finished the half strong, Benson with a great chance which was blocked well by the defender.

Should have had a few more in the end, so I reckon SK will be slightly disappointed. Overall though its mission accomplished.
Shields showed his european experience and was MOTM in my opinion. Hoban not up to his usual standards. Duffy missing a spark but still pops up with another assist. Rogers made one very important stop in the second half. Connolly played well and is gradually improving.
SK never changes - late substitutions that were fairly pointless. Thought Adorjan and Murray could have offered something from 65/70 minutes on.
Ref let a shocking amount of tackles go, I thought he had forgotten his cards at one stage.

Shows how far we've come and how much the European experience stands to you that it felt a routine enough victory.
You never really felt they would equalise and we should have had another couple without playing brilliantly.
Shouldn't have many problems in the 2nd leg on the evidence of today.

Good game, by far a different team than the one Cork walked over last year. They had their moments but we were the better side. On another night we would have scored a few more. Happy for Connolly scoring and the defense for keeping a clean sheet. Benson and Sheilds had a great game, perhaps Hoban didn't have his best game, touch let him down a lot. Anyway, we will take the win. Sets it up nicely for a full house next week.

Excellent result, although the performance appeared to be adequate more than outstanding.

The bookmakers odds will swing even more dramatically in our favour, but Stephen Kenny will be well aware that this tie is fare from over.

Irish Indo report from Caoimhin Reilly

Kenny: We're kicking ourselves despite win
Dundalk 1 Levadia Tallinn 0

Stephen Kenny drew level with Pat Fenlon on 11 European wins as a manager after watching his Dundalk side comfortably see off Levadia Tallinn in the first leg of their Europa League first-round qualifier in Estonia last night.

I don't think we played particularly well but we were still the better team. They weren't up to much and I'd fancy us to put a couple passed them next week

Win away in Europe and be slightly disappointed that we didn't win by more. Shows how far we have come :-)

It's a tribute to Kenny's coaching that Connolly has got his game together this season. Connolly was all over the shop a year ago, but is starting to grow into his role and contribute. We are so awesome at the mo!!

Here we go again , ground limited to 3,000. Can anyone estimate how many tickets we would sell , if Oriel was up to standard required .
