Although comfortable throughout the game it seemed we never got the flowing movement of recent games into gear. This could be down to the narrow pitch. Most importantly, this result has Dundalk in the quarter final draw tomorrow. I'd agree with above, fair play to Crumlin for hosting the match, I'd say a couple of hundred there from Dundalk, the usual faces to be fair. An enjoyable day out but will be glad of a match in Oriel next Friday after all the travels of the last couple of weeks.

Very disappointed with the hosting yesterday. Making the pitch narrow is the home team's perogative, but it was already a GAA pitch. Players will use the spectator line as a guide as to the position of the sideline. There was at least a 15 yard gap on our side. I also think Crumlin lost out financially as they would certainly have netted more in Oriel. They certainly weren't looking to win the game. Everytime Rogers got the ball they all retreated to their own half.
