Can Wexford cause another cup upset?

Wexford look to progress to the quarter-finals of the FAI Cup for a second year running. After defeating Sligo Rovers in dramatic fashion in extra-time, the momentum is with Wexford for another cup upset against Dundalk.

The last time Wexford and Dundalk faced was at Ferrycarrig Park, and will coincidentally be 6 years ago to the day, 26th August 2016. David McMillan scored the only goal of the game for Dundalk on that day, while Peter Higgins was sent off in the second half. 

Wexford will need to forget about their recent league form as of late, and come into this game as motivated as ever. 

Although they haven’t picked up a win in their last 4 league games, they have only lost once in their last 5 at Ferrycarrig Park. And with Dundalk being our toughest opponents of the season, the atmosphere at Ferrycarrig will no doubt be buzzing to spur the lads on.

On the flip side, Dundalk have only won once in their last 5 away league games, and are coming off the back of their biggest defeat of the season against Rovers on Sunday. After conceding a 7 point lead at the top to Rovers, they won’t want to go another season trophyless. They will either come into this game disheartened or determined.

Dundalk have also only won 3 games away this season – against Bohs, Finn Harps, and Derry. Out of all sides in the Premier Division, Dundalk have scored the least amount of goals away from home, with just 10 (the same as UCD). However despite this, they also have one of the best defences away from home too, with just 13 goals conceded.

Wexford will pose good attacking threat. In the last 10 games, Wexford are the 3rd top scorers in the First Division with 18 goals.

All of Dundalk’s 4 losses this season have come away from home. In fact, the last time Dundalk lost back-to-back games was in late October, and coincidentally both away from home, and against St. Pats. On the 22nd, they were knocked out of the semi-final of the FAI Cup, 3-1, and on the 25th they lost 1-0 in the league. Rovers then went on to win the league in their next game.

Could history somewhat repeat itself this year? Back-to-back away losses, knocked out of the FAI Cup, and Rovers winning the league soon after.

An exciting night awaits us! 

Kick-off is 19:45 on Friday, 26th August 2022 at Ferrycarrig Park.
