Good attacking team named. Should be well able for the 2 points against a struggling Offaly team.

Hope you are right redsetanta. It won't be easy.

LAOIS:
Graham Brody;
Stephen Attride, Mark Timmons, Gareth Dillon;
Trevor Collins, Colm Begley, Marty Scully;
John O’Loughlin, Kieran Lillis;
Eoin Lowry, Donie Kingston, Benny Carroll;
Ross Munnelly, Evan O’Carroll, Colm Murphy

That team is well capable of scoring 1-14 or 1-15 which will beat Offaly.

I think Offaly are more unlucky than struggling at the moment,  a couple of points here and there and they would be going for promotion.  It's a home game I would not have this as gimme.

Offaly sent us down to Div.4 two years ago beating us by one point and delighting in it, hopefully we can get our own back on Saturday and do the same to them.  #revengeissweet#

I think there won't be much in it. A couple of points one way or another at most. Hopefully we get a few breaks and come home with a win. A draw wouldn't be a huge surprise.
Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

Never expect anything with Laois. It soothes the eventual disappointment.

And never include Laois in an accumulator.

But yeah, a 5/6 point win would be lovely, especially given points difference could still play a big role to come.

All depends on the weather, a wet and windy day and anything can happen..

We were f**king shit and deserved to go down. We did more to send us down than Offaly.

Just a question lads. Does head to head or points differences come into play first. If we beat Carlow andif westmeath beat both Louth and down then will the fact that we beat down put us up

We always looked like the better team today, but we still have a number of deficiencies. We have no outlet at midfield at all and the amount of self inflicted pressure this creates can cripple us. It now looks like we are dependent on the short kick out.

Our tackling at the back needs some sort of specialist attention in my opinion. It's fair to say that we have unnatural backs, but opposing players are not put under enough pressure. I was disappointed that we conceded 15 scores against a fairly raw looking Offaly team. I'll give the Offaly lads one thing. They lack nothing in guts and determination whereas we never look like we're at full tilt. That's as bad an Offaly team as I've ever seen, but they still made inroads with too much ease. Their Number 12 consistently gave us problems and was the best player on the pitch in my opinion.

The above said, it was a rotten day and we had the better players. I just feel that there should be a lot more in this bunch, but we lack leaders and we need to address obvious shortcomings

I agree with high fielder we have won the game that’s great don’t get me wrong but we Leak so many scores we are so open at this stage I think it’s very naive and a silly way of playing we should be way ahead of Offaly in my view;; love the way sugru keeps switching and blooding players but I’m not convinced on our system of play but I’m there to be corrected as we have not lost many games under johns stewardship

Here are the rules concerning this:

If two teams finish level on the same points then their head to head record separates them.
If three teams or more finish level on points then they’re separated by scoring difference.

Good win today. Some things not so good.

Benny Carroll. There were eyebrows raised when that man was first thrust into the team last year but he's well and truly put those doubts to bed now. So astute and intelligent. Rarely wastes the ball. Must be nailed on come championship. Nice lad as well by all accounts. And a fantastic footballer.

Martin Scully is another that merits a mention. Poked holes in Offaly's defence all day. We've much more of a squad this year. Onwards and upwards.
