Wexford FC RT @YouthsWomen: ⚽️ @bkingslxy hat-trick from @YouthsWomen U17s win over @LimerickFCWomen at Ferrycarrig on Saturday!🎩⚽️💗 https://t.co/C9wU…

Wexford FC head to Eamonn Deacy Park tomorrow evening in good spirits after last week's comfortable win over Athlone Town at Ferrycarrig Park. They face a Galway United side who are hungry for a first home win of the season and looking to bounce back from last week's frustrating loss to Shelbourne FC at Tolka Park. The game was an even affair until United's Dara Costello and Stephen Walsh were both sent off within three minutes of each other in the second half, the nine men eventually losing 3-0.

Alan Murphy's side currently sit bottom of the First Division with six points from nine games (Wexford one place above with seven points but having played one more game). The Tribesmen have two wins and seven defeats so far, their victories both coming away from home against Athlone and Wexford, 4-0 score lines on both occasions. Murphy has assembled a promising young squad at Eamonn Deacy Park with players like 17 year old striker Colin Kelly and midfielder Conor Barry (both players on target in their win at Ferrycarrig Park back in March), along with experienced League of Ireland campaigners such as current top scorer Vinny Faherty and is looking to improve on last years sixth place finish. 

As mentioned, the sides have met once already in the League this season, a convincing 4-0 win for Galway at Ferrycarrig Park on match day 2 in March. Galway were three goals up (Donal Higgins, Conor Barry and Maurice Nugent) before Wexford's Danny Doyle was dismissed after picking up two yellow cards with twenty minutes to go. Colin Kelly added a fourth in the 82nd minute.

Wexford FC Manager Brian O'Sullivan knows a tough challenge awaits tomorrow night but is happy with his sides recent performances:

"I think over the last six weeks, since the Bray game, it's really changed. Okay, we've lost games, some in the last minute like in Drogheda, against Cabinteely we were the better side and lost but we have to take the positives that we are playing well, creating chances like we did against Athlone and defending better as a team but it's going to be a different challenge again for us against Galway. We'll go up there and look for another good performance."

Owen McCormack and Lee Costello are back in contention after missing last week's win through suspension and injury. Also available for selection is Danny Furlong who was suspended for the first meeting between the sides this year, Danny spent an injury interrupted season at Eamonn Deacy Park in 2018 but still managed seven goals in his fifteen appearances there. Unfortunately Emmet Nugent and Paddy Cahill are unavailable and will miss the trip west tomorrow evening.

Kick off at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday is at 7:45pm.
