Vemmelund suspended unfortunately.

The way Caulfield is rabbiting on you would think Cork have a 1 or 2 point lead

Team news

Dundalk are likely to be without Steven Kinsella who limped off on Friday night wile there is a doubt over Tommy Stewart who has a hip flexor injury. John Mountney remains sidelined with an osteos pubis problem while Niclas Vemmelund misses out due to a suspension after accumulating five yellow cards.

The game won't sell out. We'll have about 5,000. We'll be playing for a draw at most.

I can't believe this wont sell out, the chance is there for Cork to win the league tomorrow night.

Didn't realise Vemmelund was suspended, pity, but he wasn't at his best on Fri, Hoare is a fine replacement, he has never let us down, O'Donnell might be close but I think he will play below side as indicated by a few others above.

I agree with corkery, I don't think it will sell out, but will be near to capacity. Mainly because we are playing s**** at the moment and people don't expect us to win. Also it is on a Monday night which doesn't help.
A draw would be a fantastic result for us considering the contrasting form of the two sides but I don't think we'll get it.

Fair play to our friends from the south. Honest assessment without jingosm - from either side - is what these forums are about.

I'm actually concerned, not about our own form, but Corks. They've had a poor run of form and confidence, and if anything was going to force them out of the slump it's the thought of us showing them up.

On the other hand a win for us leaves Cork needing either a win and two draws or just two wins from four games. Home to Derry is probably the win at present, but trips to Bohs and St Pats might not be so easy. Home to Bray on the last day is not a game you would want if you needed to win.

As an aside, it is highly unlikely Cork could win the league on goal difference. We are already level and can only hope to finish level on points by winning all our remaining games and hoping Cork come up short, which has to leave us better off.

Thanks Corkery. Might see you there!

A couple of months ago, I was certain that this game would be dead rubber. I delighted that it is a meaningful match.

Lots of fans of other clubs in the LOI are loving Cork's fall in form, but we know what it is to lose important players. It takes time for a new team to gel. It is surprising that Caulfield chose not to replace Maguire though. Was he counting his chickens too early?

Going on form we should be favourites but what an incentive Cork have. Win a title on their own patch, against a team they have come second to for three seasons. What other motivation could anyone want.

Nobody knows why a striker wasn't brought in, we will probably never know.

Dundalk will be motivated too though. The 3-0 defeat up there really hurt them and they will want to set the record straight.

Obviously I hope Dundalk will win, but the draw is an attractive bet

Caulfield will be cautious and will fully realise that a draw is good enough

Is this not a meaningless match?
Cork will win the league, we will come second. Both teams have semi finals coming up and both would, I imagine, be very protective of their top players. It wouldn't surprise me to see a lot of fringe players from both sides featuring.

Meaningless is the same way that an end of season game between Real-Barca or Liverpool-ManU is meaningless

Or, (at half time in Istanbul in 2005) as meaningless as the second half?

Keeps us dreamers going. What an achievement by the team for us to be even contemplating the possibility at this stage.

Getting bored of watching Cork want it more than us when we play them
There's only one word for that - magic darts...
