5 games to go – The Chase Continues!

Wexford travel to Athlone this weekend to try and narrow the 6 point gap from the play-off spots.

We come into this game off the back of an impressive comeback against Waterford. With half an hour left and two goals down, Wexford managed to fight back with goals from Conor Barry and Aaron Dobbs.

This was the second time this season Wexford have come back from a 2-0 score line. The last time was at Bray Wanderers, with only 25 minutes to go. Aaron Dobbs unsurprisingly scored in both comeback games.

However, the hard-fought point against Waterford also means Wexford have not won a league game in their last 5, making them the only team in the league to do so. Their record for the last 6 games has been: 1 win, 2 losses, and 3 draws. Coincidentally, all 3 draws have ended 2-2, against Galway, Cobh and now Waterford. And including the Bray game, our last 4 draws have ended 2-2.

Wexford have also only lost 1 out of their last 7 away games this season. They have lost less, scored more goals, conceded less, and accumulated more points in one less game away from home, than at Ferrycarrig Park this season.

Despite only winning 2 games out of the last 8, Wexford are the joint top goal scorers in that time with 14, equalling league-leaders Cork. 

On the other hand, Athlone also come into this game with 2 wins from their last 8 league games, except they have lost the remaining 6. Remarkably, they also have the same record in their last 8 home games.

A good tactic for Wexford is to put the pressure on Athlone from the get-go. Athlone have not won a game at home this season after being 0-1 down (which has happened 8 times).

Head-to-Head, Wexford have won the last 4 games against Athlone, and are unbeaten in their last 5. At the Athlone Stadium, Wexford have won the last two. A clean sheet has been kept by the winning side at the Athlone Stadium in the last 3 meetings between the sides.

Dinny Corcoran and Aaron Dobbs have both scored 2 goals in the 3 games against Athlone this season. Athlone could be the first club Wexford have won all 4 games against this season.

Treaty United face Bray Wanderers this Friday also. The record between these sides is currently: 2 wins Treaty, 1 win Bray, and 3 draws. Treaty however haven’t lost in their last 3 meetings versus Bray.

Kick-off is at the Athlone Stadium on Friday 9th September 2022 at 19:45.
