League Preview: Kerry -v- Wexford


Billy Dennehy’s side welcome Wexford FC to Mounthawk Park for the first time on Friday evening (kick-off 7:45pm).

The Kingdom are settling into the league and their fantastic 3-2 win over Athlone Town two weeks ago will still have a massive influence over morale.

Last week saw them lose out to Bray following a 2-0 home defeat but Dennehy is keeping a positive mindset.

Speaking to the club’s media team this week, he said: “Every game is an individual game on its own merit so anything can happen.

“We’re very competitive no matter who we play against. We know it will be a tough game but it will be exciting after the way we’ve played over the past few games.

“I’ll be excited to see the team perform again and see some of the younger players who are developing and establishing their reputations in the league.”

The side are certainly looking more organised and will be hoping to add to their five-point tally this weekend. 


James Keddy’s side will take the long trip across to the Kingdom in a bid to push some momentum back into their promotion campaign.

Last week saw them lose 3-0 at Ferrycarrig Park to Longford Town who then jumped ahead of them in the table, leaving Wexford in eighth – just one point ahead of Finn Harps.

Wexford started the game well with skipper Ethan Boyle slotting into his usual centre-back position after playing higher up the pitch in the previous few games.

Despite holding the possession well, they conceded two goals just before half-time and were unable to produce any attacking threat.

The sides last met on St. Patrick’s Day when Kerry visited the Sunny South East and suffered a 2-1 defeat after Brandon McCann slotted a late winner.
