Dundalk v Finn Harps, Oriel Park, 5pm [Live on WatchLOI]

It's back to the bread and butter of the league for Dundalk after a golden night at the Aviva Stadium.

Filippo Giovignali's men earned a famous 3-1 victory over Ki Klaksvik in the UEFA Europa League play-off to spark scenes of jubilation.

They can now look forward to winter games against Molde, Arsenal and Rapid Vienna, but they must also negotiate a hectic period that starts with five domestic matches in 15 days.

Second-from-bottom Harps are first up, with clashes against St Pat's, Cork City, Waterford and Derry City before the Lilywhites begin their Europa League group stage campaign.


Team news

Dundalk: Dane Massey [hip] is out while Sean Gannon is a doubt due to an ankle injury. Chris Shields is back however after serving his European ban.

Finn Harps: David Webster has served his one-game and is available again. Mark Timlin continues his recovery while Tom McDermott and Ruairi Harkin are doubts.
