University College Dublin v Charlton Athletic - PSF - 12 July 2017

The third of our trio of Irish games takes us back to the Pale where we will face a team ten years older than ourselves. "The Students" still have direct links to the univesity and still have undergraduates, often from their sporting scholarship scheme, representing them.

Billy Clarke and some of the others players yet to get as many minutes such as Josh Magennis may be risked for longer tonight. Kashi, Solly, Fosu, Novak and Ajose weren't available last night due to knocks and it seems unlikely that all will recover. Robinson may try to give Charles Charlie Charles-Cook a longer run out in his preferred midfield slot, perhaps with Anfernee Dijsteel, another youngster who will want more time to impress the boss.

Otherwise expect multiple changes at HT or 60 minutes.

UCD play in the League of Ireland First Division which is the second tier of Eire football. On that basis that should be a harder test than Crumlin and an easier task than Limerick so my prediction is 1 - 1, a result that should satisfy neither the glass half full or the glass half empty camps. The rest of us will see it as an early and so not very significant pre-season result.
