LOI: Bohs Seek Dublin Bragging Rights On Enemy Ground


Athlone Town –v- UCD    7:45

Bottom side Athlone Town welcome UCD to the Athlone Town Stadium.

The 2-0 defeat to Sligo Rovers on Tuesday was not unexpected, but would have been disheartening to Athlone Town after getting their first point in the previous game. They will consider this game an opportunity and will look to take advantage of their opponents inconsistent form and land that badly needed win.

UCD will be extremely pleased with their 1-1 draw with St Patrick’s Athletic last week. That result lifted them into ninth position and gave them some breathing room over the bottom sides. They will be looking for and expecting win here over a poor side, but need to be prepared and organised or they may leave the game with nothing. Continue reading

“Obviously it has been a disappointing league campaign but we’re still pushing to finish as high as possible. A treble of cups and European football next season will make it a successful year in my eyes as it’s a new group of players and new staff.” Continue reading

Dublin Derby Ends All Square

The Dublin Derby between St Patrick’s Athletic and Shamrock Rovers finished scoreless on Tuesday evening, a result that may dishearten the Saints who had the better of the opportunities.

Trevor Croly’s side returned to his old stomping ground on the back of their 7-1 Setanta Cup final win over Drogheda United on Saturday afternoon. While, Saints’ went into this game knowing a win is vital to keep them on the track of the title challengers Derry City and Champions Sligo Rovers.

Pats had the first chance of the game as Rovers looked a bit shocked by their rivals blistering start. Chris Forrester had the chance to find the back of the net inside two minutes. Christy Fagan broke through the Rovers defence and crossed in to find Forrester, who fired his shot straight at former teammate turned Rovers goalkeeper Barry Murphy. Continue reading
