UCD sitting 2nd in FD but I expect us to get back to winning ways tomorrow with fringe players getting an opportunity to show what they can do.

There seems to be little interest by the club in promoting this match, with no information on the website that I can see.

It does not feature in the fixture calendar, 'the next match' graphic lists the Bohs game and the only reference I can find is the article from 5 April reporting the draw. This gives the Easter Monday date, but no time.

According to social media posts, the kick off is 5pm

The team need something resembling competative game that isnt risking league points to sharpen up and for players to get up to match fitness, mix things up a bit with maybe Hoare and Barrett starting together. Maybe an adjustment of tactics starting to become familiar to a system that during league games we can use if we need to go after a game. Also a trophy is a trophy so club and us supporters should be taking this relatively seriously as we could end up empty handed never mind 4 in a row. Fine balance I know between protecting key players for the league and puting out a strong enough team to try and shake off that pre-season sluggishness we still same to be carrying. I would have thought that a bank holiday, early evening kick off, and reduction in ticket prices should be pushed as a crowd between 1500 and 2000 wouldnt be impossible.

Yep - I found it too when I searched for it.

I'm surprised that some do not see the paucity and tardiness of the website promotion as being a problem.

After Fridays debacle of a result. Performance was ok in pieces I would like to see the same starting XI again for the reason of playing with a lot more urgency in getting the ball to our attackers instead of trying to walk the ball into the net.

A possible change would be for Stewart in for davie mac. Clifford had a poor game but I wouldn't risk skip ahead of the bohs game.

With another home game on Friday, I think we'll be lucky to break 1000.

The most important thing about winning this tie was "winning". The fringe players can look forward to more game time & hopefully progress further in this competition. The penalty taking in the shoot out was excellent from a Dundalk prospective, why any of the six who took a penalty didn't take the one during the game itself is beyond me.
