Wexford FC welcome Cobh Ramblers to Ferrycarrig Park tomorrow evening on match day 12 in the SSE Airtricity League First Division. This is the second League meeting between the sides this season and Wexford will be looking for a much improved performance from the comprehensive 6-1 defeat to the Rams at St.Colman's Park back in March. Manager Brian O'Sullivan was without some key players that night, Danny Furlong, Chris Kenny, Sean Callan, Thomas Croke and Danny Doyle all absent.

The visitors head into the game on the back of a 1-1 away draw to Athlone Town last week, in form Jaze Kabia with the Cobh goal, the talented young striker with his sixth of the season. Stephen Henderson's team have suffered from inconsistency so far this year and find themselves in 7th position after 11 games (4 points above Wexford who sit at the bottom of the First Division in 10th) with a record of three wins, two draws and six defeats. The wins have come at home to Wexford and Shelbourne and their last victory was a 2-1 away win over Galway on April 12th. They followed up that win at Eamonn Deacy Park with a home draw to League leaders Longford Town but were defeated 4-1 the following week at St.Colman's Park by Drogheda United. Last season the Rams finished in 8th place in the First Division just one place above Wexford but with a gap of 12 points between the two teams. It was a frustrating season for the club after excellent finishes in 2016 (3rd) and 2017 (2nd).

Danger men for the visitors include Kabia who scored twice in the 6-1 League win over Wexford back in March and forward Cian Leonard who was also on target with a goal that night as well as scoring twice in Cobh's 3-1 pre-season victory over Wexford in February.

Wexford FC have never beaten Cobh in the League in eight attempts and were defeated 2-1 the last time the sides met at Ferrycarrig Park on August 31st, 2018 (Cobh also knocked us out of the EA Cup last season and went all the way to the Final where they lost to Derry City). 

Wexford head into the game on the back of a 2-0 away defeat to Galway last week, a disappointing result given the chances we had in the game. Our home record so far this year stands at two wins (over Bray and Athlone) and three defeats (Galway, Longford and Cabinteely) and fans will be hoping for a similar performance and result as in our last home game (2-0 victory over Athlone on 26th April).

Owen McCormack will miss tomorrow night's game but other than that Brian O'Sullivan has a full squad to choose from.

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