WEXFORD

Wexford will be hoping to build on last weekend’s big FAI Cup win over Cabinteely as they take on Galway United at Ferrycarrig Park on Friday.

The Slaneysiders eased past Cabo with a dominant spell before the first-half came to a close, scoring three without reply.

And they will now be hoping to win their first league game since May when they take on Galway United.

In team news, Jack Connolly and Ayman Yousif remain the only injury absentees. 

Thomas Considine, Cian Kelly and Lorcan Fitzgerald all returned to the matchday squad last week after brief injury concerns.

GALWAY UNITED

Galway United return to league action this weekend following a 2-0 FAI Cup defeat at the hands of Shamrock Rovers last time out.

The Tribesmen were seen off by the Hoops despite turning in a good second-half display, but manager John Caulfield is expecting a tough test on the South-East coast.

“Ian Ryan has turned Wexford around very quickly since he has come in from UCD,” Caulfield told the club’s media team.

“Since Wexford came into the league, they have spent a lot of their time in the First Division, they were in the Premier Division for a short spell also.

It will be another tough game so we will have to be at our best on Friday night because if you are not, you drop points.

“We are coming into the final third of the season now. We have 11 games to go so we need to drive on and make sure we are in a playoff position.

“Every week brings a different challenge, so we need to keep our feet on the ground.

“We are preparing all week for a difficult match. But at the same time, we know what we can do too.”

Carlton Ubaezuonu misses out through injury, joining Francely Lomboto and Ronan Manning on the treatment table.

Killian Brouder and Conor O’Keefe are doubts.

Referee: Declan Toland.
