Wexford FC NEXT UP | @WexfordFC are back in action on Friday evening when we welcome @AthloneTownAFC to Ferrycarrig Park on ma… https://t.co/GvM2s2SneH

Stradbrook is the destination for Wexford FC on Friday night, our second visit of the year to the south Dublin venue and our fourth meeting with Cabinteely FC in 2018. We've already met twice in the League, on the opening day of the season back in February when an early Sean Hurley goal at Stradbrook proved to be the winner for us and again at Ferrycarrig in May when Conor Keeley grabbed the winner for Cabinteely. The third meeting was also in May, a Leinster Senior Cup game that was also decided by the single goal, Ross Kenny nodding in a late winner to advance Wexford into the quarter finals of that competition.

So, both teams know each other extremely well at this stage to say the least as they clash for the fourth and final time this season. We've met Cabo three times at Stradbrook in our short club history and have a good record there, two wins and a defeat.

It'll be good to get back on the pitch and concentrate on football after the disappointing week for the club off it and we can look forward to another competitive tussle with Cabo on Friday before heading to Richmond Park on Monday evening for our LSC Quarter Final. 

Cabinteely, like ourselves struggled for form and results at the start of the season, lacking consistency, shown in their League record of 7 wins, 10 defeats with just the 1 draw. They currently lie 7th in the table on 22 points (13 points clear of Wexford, the gap in 2017 at seasons end between the sides was 19 points when Cabo finished 6th). Kieran Waters continues to be their main man, three goals to his name so far in a side thats scored 18 total in their 18 games so far. They were defeated at home on their return to League action last week, Finn Harps the 1-0 victors, but their recent record is good, with victories against Longford and Athlone as well as drawing with Shelbourne.

Wexford FC will be looking to continue their recent good run of form, sharing points with Harps and Galway before the reversed result against Athlone. Young players like Dean George, Danny Doyle, Conor Sutton and Owen McCormack have all excelled in recent weeks so while our current position in the table is frustrating the future is certainly looking promising. Four more of our U19 team were promoted to the senior squad this week, Adham Masood, Craig O'Reilly, Vinny Quinlan and Mikey Carroll while Damian Locke is also hoping to make further additions to continue to strengthen one of the youngest squads in the League. The injury list has also slowly cleared up seeing the return to action of top scorer Aaron Dobbs upfront (another player aged just 19).

Doubtful for Friday though is another in form young player, Dean Kelly (3 goals in his last 5 games) who has a foot injury and may miss the trip to Dublin.

Kick off at Stradbrook on Friday is at 7:45pm.
