“We’re hoping to keep our run going” – John Caulfield, Manager
Galway United make the short trip up the M6 to Athlone Town for their seventh outing of the SSE First Division on Friday night – kick off is at 7:45pm.
The Tribesmen are looking to continue their perfect start to the 2023 campaign which sees them sit at the summit of the First Division table.
Meanwhile, Athlone Town are coming into this one off the back of an away victory over Kerry FC last Friday night.
Manager John Caulfield spoke ahead of Friday night’s fixture: ‘
We’re looking to keep our run going. They (Athlone) are really powerful up front in the forward positions, but at the same time, we’re on a really good run of form and we want to keep it going.”
