ABOUT UNITED 🇱🇻
United head into the game on a good run of form after an emphatic 6-0 win over Athlone Town last Friday, beating Finn Harps earlier that week and winning the league against Kerry in a 4-0 win the week before.
“Declan (Devine) is a very successful manager. We know how good Bohs are, their strengths and what a massive club they are. But it’s been a fantastic season for us too, winning the league, along with our home form which has been absolutely brilliant. But at the same time, we know how difficult the game will be. We have prepared well and we’re looking forward to the game. We know we need to be at our best to have a chance. With our massive home crowd, we hope we can spring a surprise.”
2023 SQUAD ⚽️

LAST TIME OUT ⏮

ABOUT BOHEMIANS 🔴⚫️
Afolabi has been a standout for Bohemians this season, being the top scorer in the Premier Division with 13 goals to his name so far this season. His form domestically has seen him earn international recognition with a recent call-up to the Ireland senior squad. Afolabi who brings a combination of strength and speed along with a top-notch finishing ability has caused danger to almost every defence he has faced this year and certainly one to keep an eye out for on Saturday.
