Wexford FC have a date with destiny this Friday night, taking on Cork City in the Sports Direct FAI Cup Quarter Final at Turner’s Cross.
Wexford go into the match in phenomenal form, with 7 wins and two draws in the last ten games in all competitions. Wexford are unbeaten since early August, which has powered them well into contention for a playoff finish.
Despite going into the game as obvious favourites with Premier Division and full-time status, it must be said they go into Friday night in lacklustre form to say the least. Although they picked up an important 3-0 win last week against Sligo Rovers, they were previously without a league win since 5th June. Wexford go in with everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Long-term Wexford fans will remember a number of major cupsets against Cork City also. Back in 2008, Wexford defeated the Arkaga-backed Cork City 1-0 at Turners Cross in the League Cup Semi Final. Wexford repeated the feat the following year defeating Cork City on penalties in the League Cup once again at Turner’s Cross.
Last time out at Turner’s Cross, Wexford held Cork City to 0-0 draw in the First Division game that saw Cork City clinch the title.
A massive club night ahead this Friday!
Wexford FC go into Friday night close to full strength. Aaron Robinson and Conor Levingston have both made gradual returns to the matchday squad in recent weeks, while Brandon McCann missed out last week with a small injury.
