Dundalk FC have announced that Thursday's clash with FC Zenit at Tallaght Stadium is now sold out.

The Irish champions will take on the Russian visitors in the Europa League at 8.05pm on Thursday.

The Lilywhites fielded a strong team last night as they strolled to a 3-0 victory over Longford Town, who they condemned to relegation.

However, only 495 fans showed up to watch the game at the City Calling Stadium.

The win, combined with Cork City's 3-0 loss to St. Patrick's Athletic, means that Dundalk are in pole position to retain the Airtricity League.

Dane Massey, David McMillan and Daryl Horgan scored the goals on the night for Dundalk.

Stephen Kenny's team now know that one win from their final three league matches will be enough for Dundalk to retain their crown.

The Louth club have also made a strong start to their Europa League group, earning a 1-1 draw in Alkmaar, before beating Maccabi Tel Aviv 1-0 in Tallaght last time out.

A win on Thursday night would see the Lilywhites go top of Group D.
