Okay, the votes are in and counted in our first Man of the Match poll of this year’s championship campaign. It’s a decisive result too, with Evan Regan – who contributed seven points to our 2-16 tally yesterday – claiming 40% of the vote to win the award by a clear margin. Well done to him.
Conor Loftus, who notched 1-2 from the bench, finished next in the poll with 23% of the vote, followed by Andy Moran and Cillian O’Connor on 5%. In Cillian’s case, that’s roughly 1% of the poll for every minute he spent on the pitch yesterday before getting black-carded. No – I’m not wholly sure I understand the logic of that particular voting pattern either. One for the psephologists, I guess.
