Well, they have a Louth man in the middle.
Here is my Preview

The mystery Louth Man is…

None other than Ciaran Sheridan.
Being a Sheridan you can make an easy guess as to what club he is from.
Yes! you are right, it is Glyde Rangers.
The Sheridan name goes hand in hand with football in Tallanstown and usually they aren’t half bad of footballers either. This lad is no different, a fine footballer indeed.
Ciarain will play in the middle of the field for the students tonight.
Left footed, can take free’s or 45’s.
Look out for him…no doubt he will be out to impress Louth manager Colin Kelly tonight.
Surprising he hasn’t featured for Louth before now?

What to expect

The students were gunned down on Sunday by 10 points by a strong Carlow side.
The result could be down to Carlow putting a lot of their season into the O’Byrne cup and Maynooth going down to 14 men.

Their star player Daniel Flynn (below) from Kildare received the red so he will be a big loss to them tonight.

They have other Kildare players to look out for Paul Cribben and Padraig Fogarty. The latter caused us serious harm in Croke Park one day under AOR in the Leinster Championship.

They also have a few plucky forwards that will test our defence, Henry Wallace from Roscommon and pacy Joey Wallace from Ratoath (Eamonn’s brother).
Their main man on the forty will be Evan O’Carroll he featured in Laois U21 side that beat Louth last year. good player and we could well see him in the opening round of the league in Portlaoise.

Verdict

After Sunday’s win away from home we have set ourselves up nicely to top the group.
Easy saying it, doing it on a Wednesday night in Darver is another thing!

We’ll have a much changed team and that might be a leveller against a fitter college team at this time of year.
Fully expect a Louth win, but not as easy as one might expect.
