It was exciting but Kildare edged it. They took lead for first time with 5 to go. Goal killed us. Our goal was too little, too late.

Well done Kildare - Ye just about escaped

Phew! Kildare probably had more trust in their bench, Longford players were dead on their feet with 10 to go but no changes forthcoming. We finished much stronger but still foul too much. Definitely need a lucky draw Monday  to progress.

Why oh why did Longford not use bench? Whats the point of having subs if you dont utalise them...no point bringing 3 lads on with seconds left. It was deciding factor in the end as lads had run themselves into the ground.

Happy to get the result. Better teams than that Kildare side have been turned over by Longford in their own back yard down the years. It's the first time in a while that this group of players have dug out a result so that is encouraging. It would have been interesting to see whether the heads would have dropped if Longford had shown a bit more composure on either of those goal chances in the first half.

The standard of football wasn't hectic although it was a fairly tense game and there were some nice scores. Paul Cribbin and Neil Flynn kept us in it at times. Agree with the comments above regarding the respective benches. Healy and Slattery were busy and got on a lot of ball while Feely produced two moments of real quality in his ten minutes on the field.

We will probably need a favourable draw on Monday to go much further.
There's Seán Brady going in, what dya think Seán?

Obviously delighted with the win, but feel we nicked it a small bit as we shot ourselves in the foot so many times.
Then Longford hits the crossbar twice.

Kildare have so much to sort out, but Feely coming on really just settled the entire team and he is a real leader. Glad to get a bit of sun and get out OK and looking forward to another day.
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.
