When the draw for Round 3 of the qualifiers was made on Monday morning few could have anticipated the controversy that it would generate. For a while it looked as if the our match against Kildare wouldn’t go ahead at all on Saturday but, thankfully, the issue relating to the match venue has now been resolved and so it’s all systems go for 7pm at St Conleth’s Park in Newbridge that evening.
This means we’ve got a game to preview and in this episode of the Mayo News football podcast that’s what we do. Host Rob Murphy and I chew the fat about the events over the last few days relating to the venue for the game and we also look ahead to Saturday evening from the supporters’ point of view to what’s sure to be an atmospheric occasion. Rob also talks tactics on the game with Mayo News columnist Billy Joe Padden, focusing on the threats Kildare pose and the opportunities we’ll be seeking to exploit against them.
