Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
After failing to beat Magpies at Victoria Stadium, Dundalk will be aiming to return to book their spot in the Conference League second qualifying round when they take on Magpies at Oriel Park. The Lilywhites are seen as hot favourites to win the return leg and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Gibraltar outfit. Daniel Kelly is back from a domestic ban, while all Robert McCourt, Andrew Boyle, Cameron Elliott, Robbie Benson, and John Mountney should miss out with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, have no other option but to rely on their defence in the second leg. Magpies, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Dundalk’s party at Oriel Park. As for the away side, Liam Nash is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
