Closing down on Shels!

The Youths travel to Eamonn Deacy Park this Saturday to face Galway WFC, with the aim of narrowing the gap between Shelbourne at the top to just 2 points.

In the last 10 league games, only Wexford, Galway and Athlone have lost just one game. For Galway, their 11 game unbeaten streak ended just last weekend after Peamount United came back in the second half to win 2-1. Before then, their last loss came against league-leaders Shelbourne in mid-April.

Wexford however are unbeaten in their last 5 games. The Youths have also only lost once in their last 6 away games, keeping a clean sheet in their last 3.

If previous encounters are anything to go by, we can expect some late drama in this fixture. Last time out at Eamonn Deacy Park at the end of April, a late goal by Julie Ann Russell equalised the game, resulting in a 2-2 outcome. However, Wexford were on the opposite end as Nicola Sinnott equalised in the 1-1 draw at Ferrycarrig Park in July.

Wexford will need to get the goals past the Galway defenders and avoid another draw this time round – both games this season have ended in a draw. Galway have drawn the most games in the league so far this season. With 6 draws from 18 games they have drawn a third of their games. They also have the most draws at home this season with 4, out of 9 games.

No doubt the Youths will be counting on Ellen Molloy once again to get them goals. Ellen is on fine form at the moment with 7 goals in the last 9 games, 3 of those coming in the last 2 games.

Note that Kick-off is 19:35 at Eamonn Deacy Park this Saturday, 13th August 2022.
