What was the formation at kick off? 4 at the back or 3? If 4, who played LB?

4 at the back at the start with Annesley at LB. Changed to 5 at the back when muller went off I think.

Was a decent enough game though typical preseason with a few tasty challenges later on. Thought annesley, malley and Davies were the stand outs. Boyle played well too. Cpl of half chances for both sides nothing really of note. Typical pre season friendly. We were the better team. Deegan played well for them . Adeboyega the chap who left us for them isn't afraid to get stuck in. Felt he was very argumentative feisty too. Hoban certainly didn't seem too happy with him. Decent travelling support too. Still hell-bent on their flares it would seem too . O'Donnell and Doherty don't hold back on the touchline.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

That highlights our lack of cover at LB. Annesley is built like a CB and I believe he plays DM as well. Would it be fair to say he’s not a LB ? Might be ok defensively but prob wouldn’t offer a lot going forward?
