Audio-described commentary:

It has been 16 months since all Bohemians members, season ticket holders, fans, players and staff were all together under the same roof. That comes to an end tonight at the Aviva Stadium.

And manager Keith Long and his team are determined to put on a performance they can be proud of having come away from last week’s Europa League Conference first qualifying round first leg in Iceland with a 1-1 draw.


Long said: “Our supporters who have been starved of live football for the last 16 months.

“I cannot tell you how happy we are to have them with us tonight and we hope we can produce a performance that makes them proud.

“We have never taken their support for granted and if this pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we need to make the most of the time that we have together.

“There’s no better time than tonight for them to get behind our team and our club.

“It would have been nice to bring the tie back to Dalymount but the Aviva is not a bad substitute!

“It means that so many supporters are able to attend and I am sure that they will all make themselves heard and will get behind the boys.”

After falling behind in the first half, Bohs remained calm and Ross Tierney’s equaliser leaves the tie hanging in the balance going into tonight’s return leg.

Long said: “Stjarnan have come to Dublin with plenty of confidence and they will be better prepared as a result of last Thursday’s game.

“They are a well-organised team with some very good players who can hurt us if we are not fully focused. It is half-time in the tie and we know we will have to perform at our best tonight.

“Last week we had plenty of possession without creating a huge amount of chances but we were patient and we got the goal our play deserved having conceded a disappointing goal.

“The second half was much better in terms of tempo and with a little more quality in the final third we could have scored a second goal.

“But to come home with a draw away from home with such a young group of players coming from a goal down gives us hope.

“It will be difficult, Stjarnan are a very experienced side but we have given ourselves a chance.”
