John Caulfield’s side are level on points with Cork City at the top of the table going into Friday’s fixture against Athlone, a contest that the United manager is not taking lightly.
“We are playing our first Friday night game in over a month so we are looking forward to a big crowd coming to Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday,” Caulfield told the club’s media team.
“We are playing a rejuvenated Athlone team under Dermot Lennon. They were narrowly beaten by Waterford, Longford and Cork in their last couple of matches.
“Every week brings a tough game, we need to keep up our form and play to the level that we know we can.”
