This tie is "Buy your ticket at the ground". There are none available on-line or through the club. Looks like it will be a dry night. We might well outnumber the locals if we bring any kind of decent numbers.

Team selection will be interesting.

I presume we'll be as near full strength as we can be, given injuries. Tricky call though, with Sligo away on Monday. Can we afford to rotate anyone out for this one? Assuming Hoban, Kelly still out, is Doyle injured too?
Shepperd
Macari, Bone, Boyle, Leahy
Bradley, Sloggett, Benson, Lewis, O'Kane
McMillan
Would be nice to think we could win this early and roll in 5 subs during the second half!

They beat Sligo at home and Cork City, so this is not a case of just turning up.
Feel it will be a difficult match ,esp with Hoban and all the other injuries.

Can't understand Martin not starting. He needs a run of games and a goal or two.
McMillan is done at premier level, regardless of his performance tonight

I'm amazed at how poor we were that half, very lucky to be ahead. Credit to McMillan it was such a tight angle to score from. McCourt playing too central, that midfield will need some re-jig at half time. Sheps has been class as per usual.

Shep's keeping us level . We are absolutely shocking. Imagine we let Connolly go and replaced him with McCourt.. we'd be better off with unc McCourt.

State of that defence. You would think after last week and all the chances tonight that they would drop deeper. It's insane

Shocking display, worst back four performance I’ve ever seen, the two attackers are standing in between our defenders and for 70 mins we haven’t thought of marking them.

These defensive ‘tactics’ were highlighted by many after the rovers game…
