It was the crap Derry team. It was always going to be the crap Derry team.

We'll most likely be back in second when we play Bohs. They're a nice side and play good ball but we should be too strong. I'd still like to see us make at least three changes from the team we can expect on Thursday - Jarvis, Cleary, Murray or Adorjan and maybe start Kelly too.

3 points essential on Sunday!

Get some more game time into McEleney.

Wise choices need by SK for team selection - likely to be heavily influenced by post-Larnaca fitness assessments on Friday

While we would all love too see another 3000+ through the doors on Sunday evening, I think the numbers will be down a wee bit.
Take, for example, a non season ticket holder with 2/3kids. Tickets for the European game €30-€40, programme, sweets drinks etc at least another €10. So another game 3 days later, is the same guy in a position to shell out another €50?
If a person in this situation has to chose a game, all things equal, it’s probably going to be the European game.
I’m lucky in a way, as a non season ticket holder, that only one of my 3 kids wants to come to the games. Unfortunately for some, 2 games in 4 days is going to price some people out.
King Kenny!

Team news

Stephen O’Donnell remains out and continues his recovery from a broken leg while Stephen Folan is ruled out with a knee injury. Sam Byrne will likely miss out with a hamstring injury and Sean Gannon is a doubt with a calf problem.

Jarvis in for Massey. That's the only change.

Disappointed but not surprised he hasn't rotated a bit more. One of these days we'll need a player like Murray to come in and he won't be ready.

Only 1 change from Thursday with Jarvis coming in for Massey.
No point in us having such a large squad. SK is just more comfortable with an 18/19 man panel.

A very strange one BUT in fairness, he has to win the game.

A start for McElhaney, Jarvis and Kelly might have been it for me.

Perhaps put poyonton in right full and hoare in the middle and give Shields a rest. But as I say that, that's a lot of changes. Only making the minimal amount of changes is a strange decision. I hope it does not backfire come Thursday.

Delighted for the full points, but fearful about the impact of tired limbs and lungs in the searing heat and humidity of Cyprus.

Watched the match on skorlive stream while sitting in an air conditioned apartment in Cyprus - I'd struggle to to run 50 metres at match kick off time here today (I'd struggle to run 50 metres anywhere in any weather, but you get the point!)

Jarvis was superb. I thought Murray and Chevdukas could have started for Connolly and Benson. 3 changes isnt huge against a poor Bohs side. Connolly and Benson are lucky to be starting based on current form, nevermind concerns about fitness for Thursday

Facile win in the end, though Keith ward changed things a bit for Bohs. Had he started it may have been different

Understandably all a bit flat tonight, on the pitch and in the crowd. Professional performance, agree with all the comments that a few changes probably made sense for many reasons. Jarvis took his chance and is a proper alternative. My main concern is Hoban who has looked flat for a few games now, notwithstanding the great goal against Levadia. He does not seem to have McMillans cunning. Potentially harsh but we need to keep looking forward. Still top of the league and in every cup and a chance in Europe, got to be happy. Roll on Thursday. It is all getting very exciting. I do wish the thousand or so who were either there on Thursday and not tonight or could not get tickets on Thursday, had made the trek to Oriel tonight.
