Galway United will look to continue their impressive home form when Bray Wanderers visit Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday night. Kick-off: 7.45pm.
United have recorded home victories over Wexford Youths and Dundalk in recent weeks.
The Tribemen suffered a disappointing reversal at the hands of St. Patrick’s Athletic last week in Inchicore, losing 1-0.
Bray Wanderers meanwhile are one of the leagues form outfits and Tommy Dunne insists United will have to be on top of their game to pick up a result against Harry Kenny’s much improved side.
TOMMY DUNNE: “WE HAVE TO GIVE EVERYTHING.”
“You’ve got Bray Wanderers coming to town on Friday and they’re not giving up many chances of late..
“They’ve improved in personnel, they’ve improved quite a bit from different angles. They are one of the form teams in the country.
“We have to give everything we have and go from there. I don’t have an issue playing anybody in Galway, we have to turn up and perform.
“The players are enjoying the challenge of playing in Galway now, last year I don’t think they were as comfortable.
“The expectancy to do well at home is helping them more than being a hindrance this year.”
Padraic Cunningham (groin) and Jesse Devers (broken hand) are United’s only absentees.
