THIS Sunday's SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash between Cork City and Dundalk has been postponed.

City were due to host their rivals at Turner’s Cross but the Lilywhites' Europa League victory in Andorra means the tie was been put back.

David McMillan hit the winner against Inter Club to book a third qualifying round showdown with Moldovan champions Sheriff Tiraspol. Had Dundalk lost they would have been expected to travel to the Cross this weekend.

There was a time in the not too distant past where the final Cork City-Dundalk meeting of the season was a de facto title decider (and the actual title decider in 2014), things are a bit different now of course.

City were going into the game bottom of the table, while the Lilywhites are in third place, about to cede their crown to Shamrock Rovers, who enjoyed such an easy 3-0 win at Turner’s Cross last week.
