Wexford FC face Longford Town at Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night after a difficult few days for the club since the heavy defeat to U.C.D last Monday evening. 'De Town' look likely to be one of the teams fighting for a promotion spot come the end of the season and currently sit in sixth place with 15 points after 10 games with a record of 4 wins, 3 draws with 3 defeats. In 2017 they finished the season in fifth place, 2 places and 19 points above Wexford FC. The gap in points between us this year so far has halved to just 8 points although Wexford have played one more game.

They arrive to the south east in decent form having defeated Cobh and Cabinteely and drawn with Drogheda in their last five League games with defeats to U.C.D and Finn Harps. Although they were beaten by Cobh this week in the EA Sports Cup QF they have made it through to the Leinster Senior Cup QFs (along with ourselves).

This is the second meeting this year between the sides having met at the City Calling Stadium back in March where two goals from their current top scorer Chris Mulhall and one from Dylan McGlade resulted in a 3-0 home win for them. Wexford created chances in the game and had a Mark Slater long range effort come crashing off the crossbar at one nil before Town grabbed all three points with two more goals in the last 10 minutes. 

Wexford FC have a poor record overall against the midlanders having met five times with just the one draw and four defeats, the lone point coming back in a 0-0 draw at Ferrycarrig in April 2017. We've also found it hard to get goals against them, Thomas Croke our only goalscorer in those five games which came in a 2-1 defeat, also at Ferrycarrig. Wexford FC also suffered our heaviest away defeat yet to Longford Town ( a 5-0 loss back in May 2017) so we will have to be at our very best to get points from the game on Friday night.

On the injury front for Wexford our top scorer Aaron Dobbs is again doubtful, he has missed the last 3 games since picking up an ankle injury which forced him off against U.C.D at the Bowl in April but on the positive side both Conor Sutton and Owen Wall are back in training after recovering from injuries while Ross Kenny is back in contention after his recent suspension. 

Kick off at Ferrycarrig Park on Friday is set for 8pm.
