‘We know we have to be at our best to win the game’ – John Caulfield, Manager
Galway United host Wexford FC at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday – Kick-off is at 7.45pm
The Tribesmen return to league action this week after they overcame Bluebell United 7-0 at Tolka Park in the FAI Cup first round last Sunday to set up a second round home tie against UCD at the end of August.
United remain in second place going into Friday’s fixture, one point behind current leaders Cork City who have a game in hand. Tickets for this week’s match can be purchased HERE
Wexford go into the game in sixth position and three points off a playoff place. Ian Ryan’s side, who pulled off an impressive FAI Cup victory over Sligo Rovers last weekend, have won four of their last six First Division fixtures.
United manager John Caulfield is looking forward to returning to league action at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday.
“Wexford had a fantastic win in Sligo last weekend,” Caulfield told the club’s media team.
“Ian (Ryan) has built a very strong squad, they are in and around the playoff positions, so we know how difficult it will be.
“We are on a good run of form ourselves but we know we have to be at our best to win the game.”
