The visiting club must align in a tactical system in 4-3-3, channeling their game, preferably, through the central corridor. In this tactical design, the three most advanced players will be Sadlier, McNamee and Coughlan. In the middle zone of the terrain we believe that Keohane, Daly-Butz and McCormack will act, being that the latter is the midfield patron. Coach John Caulfield should have all the players available for this round.
