Wexford FC welcome Finn Harps to Ferrycarrig Park for the first time on Friday night with both sides looking to return to winning ways. The Donegal side were surprisingly defeated at home by Cobh Ramblers last time out but they are still well in the hunt for a return to the Premier Division first time round after relegation in 2017. Currently placed fourth but just 3 points off 2nd placed Drogheda, Harps have been in fine form of late after a slow start to the League, their recent victories against Drogheda, Longford and Galway showing how good this side can be, although they have struggled somewhat for goals with 14 in their 12 games to date (however they do have the joint best defensive record in the League). 

The sides have only met once before, when Wexford travelled to Finn Park in March which ended with a one goal win for the home team. Wexford had performed well and frustrated Finn Harps up until an Owen McCormack sending off on 50 minutes which helped turned the tide for Harps, Michael O'Connor netting the winner 20 minutes later. There is currently a 14 point gap between the sides but Wexford have played one game more.

As for ourselves, its been a difficult run of results for the team, five defeats in a row since the victory over Athlone Town back in April. Our last game away to Drogheda was a forward step though, despite the growing injury list, Wexford had chances and matched the home team for long periods but were unable to get on the scoreboard for the fourth time since our 3-2 loss at U.C.D. 

On the injury front, some good news (and more bad news). Aaron Dobbs is back in contention after picking up an injury at that U.C.D game back in April and is available for selection. As is Conor Sutton and Owen Wall who have shown no signs of problems after their recent comebacks from injury, Sutton having played a full 90 minutes last week and Wall appearing as substitute. Thankfully Shane Barnes is fine after his nasty head collision with a concrete wall on the side of the Drogheda United pitch, just some stitches required. The bad news is that AJ Lehane will be out for up to 8 weeks as he recovers from a knee operation performed this week, we wish him a speedy recovery. Sean Hurley and Mikey Byrne will also be unavailable while there are more injury doubts over Mark Slater and John Morgan for Fridays game.

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