The Tribesmen comprehensively defeated Bluebell United in the first round, dispatching the Leinster Senior League side 7-0.
Meanwhile, Friday’s opposition, UCD, overcame Cockhill Celtic on a scoreline of 3-0 to secure their place in the second round.
The two sides will be familiar with each other, having clashed three times in last year’s First Division – United emerging with two wins and a draw, including a resounding 4-1 victory the last time the sides met at Eamonn Deacy Park.
Speaking ahead of Friday’s encounter, United manager John Caulfield said:
“We are looking forward to Friday’s game. UCD went up last year, they are quite an exciting team and score lots of goals. At the same time, it’s a one-off game, 50/50, and with us being at home we hope we can be on our top form.”
