The Rebels have laid down a big marker even at this early stage of the season.

Getting a win over Dundalk for the first time in eleven attempts did more than win them the Presidents Cup. It won back an enormous amount of pride and confidence and just as many plaudits to boot.

Added to their pre-season form that’s six wins from seven with five clean sheets. Pre-season of course needs a rather liberal pinch of salt to detect a distinct flavour but the win over Dundalk can tell us a lot about John Caulfield’s side.

It wasn’t spectacular but it was solid and strong. You could forgive a side who have failed to beat the Champions in such a long time for giving up the ghost before a ball was kicked. Cork didn’t do that at all, they made their weight count and used every ounce to bully Dundalk into submission.

The second goal in particular was a well worked move and finished superbly by new signing Sean Maguire. But in truth that game was won in the midfield and by a stern defensive performance.

Eoghan O Connell is a man mountain of a boy and it is clear that he is stepping down from a higher level. Greg Bolger and Gearoid Morrisey were excellent in midfield, the area where Dundalk have been so strong. There won’t be many (if any) midfield units besting Cork this season.

Bohemians have had a mixed preseason with just one win over Athlone Town. They may have trouble hitting the ground running as it certainly looks as though City are more finely tuned early on. Much will rely on the attacking threat of Akinade and Byrne but the best strikers in the league look set to struggle against a well marshalled Cork defence.

The Cross, with a large crowd, could turn into a real fortress again this season and could be a great base for The Rebels to launch their assault on the title.

No surprise that City are the favourites at a best 1.6 (3/5) with Marathon Bet. Bohs are a best price of 6/1 with bet365 while the draw is 3.9 (29/10) with Marathon Bet.

Scoring at Turners Cross will be difficult for many away sides which accounts for the both teams to score price of 2.2 (6/5) with Coral. That even tops the best price of 2.1 (11/10) with Coral for +2.5 total goals.

Backing Cork to Win To Nil should tempt at 2.5 (6/4) with Paddy Power and it could be a bet to follow regularly for their home games. But for this one I am taking an interest in the -1 Asian Handicap price of even money with bet365. It offers stake back insurance should they win by the solitary goal and is worth a go.
