Dundalk V Finn Harps | Fri 16 Aug | 8pm | Oriel Park | Matchday 26

This Finn Harps home match presumably is going ahead no matter the result against Slovan Bratislava - with any Europa League play-off first round match not scheduled until the following Thursday 22 August at Tallaght

The Dundalk website lists the kick off for the normal 7.45pm although both Airtricity League page and RTE Sport both have the kick off time for 8pm. As eir sport are broadcasting from 7.30pm to 10.30pm I suspect that the 8pm kick off is more likely

Obviously we are completely in control of our own destiny here, but with Shamrock Rovers away to Derry City, a win over Harps would leave the gap at between 7 and 10 points with a game in hand.

It's mad to think that it's May since we last had a Friday night game in Oriel Park!

EDIT - 8pm kick off now confirmed by the club

Yes and it’s strange that the attendances were poor in May given we were about to go so long without a home game.

Dunno how other clubs survive the lack of income. It has to change.

Poor attendances not helped by having FOUR home games in 12 days! The fixture list is beyond a joke, for all clubs

Gavin McLaughlin
@DundalkSport
DFC | Dean Jarvis will resume training with Dundalk on Thursday. The full-back missed both legs of the Slovan Bratislava tie due to an 'internal issue' that has now been resolved. #DundalkSport

I presume that Gavin McLaughlin's tweet from yesterday has transpired into Dean Jarvis training today and that he will be in the squad for tomorrow.

Can anyone confirm that he trained today?

It'll be interesting to see how we handle the squad over the next few weeks. I expect the Harps game will be a full strength team, allowing for injuries, but we'll see how we handle squad rotation in the next couple of months, which are going to be busy (especially if we progress in the cups). I wonder if there might be a little more focus on the cups than usual with Europe out of the way and the league in a good position.

A back to back double would - in itself - be some achievement given the management changes, player injuries, and energy sapping trips. A treble would really be something. Am I right that we have never done it?

So what's the word around the campfire regarding Jarvis and his "internal issues"?

Isn't it obvious from the training pics?

The only team to win the treble was the derry team of 1989.

It's six posts above your current post condor.

I think Ezeikial might be inferring it's done and dusted.

Since the League Cup came in Derry are the only ones to do a Treble. Rovers did the old Treble with the Shield a few times.

We’ve probably left two behind in this era, so would be an amazing achievement. 2015 is our best ever, with a Treble of sorts including the Leinster Senior.
