It says a lot about the trajectory of Dundalk’s season that the biggest win they have enjoyed to date was a negative set of Covid-19 tests off the back of an ill-judged team bonding exercise in Belfast.

Sporting director Jim Magilton, now serving as interim manager in his latest fire-fighting mission just five months into his four-year term at Oriel Park, was visibly relieved at the medical results, acknowledging that a Covid outbreak could have taken things down another level.

But there’s no respite at the moment for a club that has now consistently started making headlines for all of the wrong reasons.
