Crusaders V Dundalk | Mon 3 Feb | 7.30pm | Seaview | Friendly

Post by Ezeikial » Fri Jan 31, 2020 8:37 pm

With Crusaders sitting second in the table with a very competitive battle for the league title going on, it's hard to imagine them playing a first choice 11 on Monday night.

The novelty of a new stadium destination may be attractive to many, even though there is another match in Oriel the following evening against Longford

Google maps suggesting that normal journey time from Oriel Park to Seaview is just over an hour, but with a 7.30pm kick off hitting some commuter traffic the journey time likely to be up to 1 hour 40 minutes. Anyone familiar with traffic around Belfast able to clarify?

Presumably this means a flat back four against Crusaders tonight

Short audio of interview with VP is included with the tweet

Plenty of chat among fans regarding Dundalk opting to trial a three at the back system in pre-season. Vinny Perth outlined the benefits of it after Thursday's win over Drogheda Utd but says he expects to go back to basics this week

Options are good. A feature of last season was that we looked like we’d run out of ideas in a lot of games. So to be able to switch to something like 3-4-3 mid game to confuse opponents would help. Just as long as it’s not Plan A

Positives from tonight
Patrick Hoban - scoring twice
Jordan Flores - playing well and going close to lasting for 90 minutes
Cammy Smith - looks like a talented player
Ronan Kilkenny - assured performance in midfield for 35 minutes

Negatives from tonight
Taner Dogan - playing out of position at right back but looking slow and unfit
Sean Murray - Having little impact and going off early
Jordan Flores - hobbling off injured, after a clash of knees

Midfield according to the internet (and Dundalk FC media reports)
