Events during the past week have made it difficult to identify a discernable transfer strategy on Dundalk's part, and on the eve of their biggest game of the season, the visit of title and European rivals Derry City to Oriel Park, on Friday night, supporters will be anxious to see if recent decisions, particularly in relation to Mark Connolly, are the right ones.

Almost certainly Connolly, who had been the backbone of Dundalk defence in the team's unexpected climb to second in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division table, above Friday's opponents, will be at the heart of the Candystripes defence having signed a two-and-a-half-year contract last week.
