Dundalk v Sligo Rovers | League Round 21 | Thursday 13 June 19.45

No mention of Jamie Gullan on the injured (Mahon, Keane, Oostenbrink)/doubtful list (Munro) so hopefully he is fit to start.

It would be good to go into the break with 3 points and a performance. You would hope Galway would take care of Drogheda but you just never know this season.

Good to hear lads moving to doubtful list from being out and out injured. We are running a bit threadbare so need lads back as soon as possible.

4-4-2 worked for us for two games, we changed it and looked terrible, reverted back for last 30 against Shels and we started to look decent again. Hopefully Gullan is fit but otherwise I'd be starting Kenny and Elliot together as Kenny looked decent against Shels and we need to take a punt on him at some stage.

Regardless if you're optimistic, we need to win to catch up with Sligo or pessimistic, that we need to in try and get ahead of Drogheda, this is a must win game. Our away form is horrendous so we need to beat the likes of Sligo at home or we're in big trouble.

The Bit O' Red lads were fairly scathing of Sligo after the Waterford game https://open.spotify.com/episode/4WxpKY ... bNeIzi9qcQ

Well on top but it's hard to see where a goal is coming from. Playing a 4 2 3 1, Gullan is a big loss

Sligo are woeful

Massive result..they were woeful. It would've been criminal not to come away with all 3 points.

Anyone know what the scrap was about at the end?

1 - 0 , great three points . Onwards & upwards. Cmon the Town . Looked really good tonight , should have been 3-0 . Sligo didn’t get a sniff. I don’t think our keeper had a save to make . Drogs well beaten 3-0 . Cmon the Town , let’s go on a run . 👍

Super win, deserved too, not sure why but I think we need to get to 40 points to be clear of play off, 15 games left.

21 more points, home form should swing it, hopefully.

If we discount the Galway game for JD, that's 7 points from 4 games, really good stuff, and makes you think what kind of ship we had under SOD.

The same avg see us finish on 45 points !

PS thought Doyle was excellent tonight, first half twice he was in perfect spot on the D, to break up and kill a Sligo attack.

Yeah Hayden Muller seems to have found his position in midfield, will need a bit of refinement but he's established a good partnership with Doyle. Still only 22.

A poor game, but Dundalk deserved the win. Sligo seemed to be going through the motions.They could have had a call for a penalty at the end.. Andy Boyle seemed to go over easily

Elliott worked hard without the end product. He links the play well .

Poor game which we controlled for the majority of the game. Doyle was immense and seemed to be in the right place at the right time for every Sligo attack. he also launched a few counters from our own box with unreal long balls. As usual, the ref was absolutely shocking, one example was malleys very late and over the ball lunge at mountney late in second half, ref hugs malley and laughs!
Drogs are scum!
