Uphill battle in Oriel next week.
They were clinical unlike the Magpies. Dundalk could have went out in the first round otherwise

Defence all over the shop first half. As people have said you might get away with that against Magpies or UCD, but suicidal against a half competent team. Midfield not imposing themselves, atrocious crossing again and again.

On the plus side the opposition are mediocre at best, for all our weakness we dominated long periods. If the good Dundalk turns up for the second leg we'll have a chance.

Going purely on the 2 games - rather than potential - were KA any better than Rovers, or was the difference down to how we played?

Rovers are much better. I thought KA were very poor and we made them look good.
