Galway United switch focus to the EA SPORTS Cup on Tuesday evening when the Tribesmen entertain Athlone Town at Eamonn Deacy Park. Kick-off: 7.45pm.
Alan Murphy’s side will look to get their first win of the season on the board when they face the Midland outfit in the club’s first home game of the 2020 season.
Both sides will be bidding to bounce back from disappointing outcomes at the weekend. United drew 0-0 away to Wexford and Athlone Town lost a five goal thriller in difficult conditions at St. Colman’s Park.
TICKET PRICES REDUCED | The club is conscious that many of our supporters will endeavour to get to both of our home games this week against Athlone Town and Cabinteely and in recognition of that, entry prices have been reduced for our EA SPORTS Cup tie against Athlone Town.
ALAN MURPHY WANTS HIS PLAYERS TO STICK A HAND UP AND IMPRESS AGAINST ATHLONE TOWN
“There’s players waiting for a chance to impress and get valuable time,” Murphy explained to www.galwayunitedfc.ie.
“It’s important they’re given an opportunity. We will field a strong side either way and we’ll be looking for the players to perform and win the game.
“We didn’t get the win against Wexford at the weekend, so we know it’s important with the two home games coming that we put down a marker in terms of performance and hopefully results also.”
United are without Jack Lynch (illness), Conor Melody (knee), Vinny Faherty (knee), Kevin Horgan (concussion) and Mikey Place (leg) for the Athlone Town game.
