Last Meeting: Cobh Ramblers 1-1 Galway United
The last time the sides faced in July it was a 1-1 draw at St. Colman’s Park with Cobh taking the lead through an early Pierce Phillips goal, before top goalscorer David Hurley equalised from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time.
Heading into Friday, the two clubs sit on opposite ends of the table in their respective leagues but manager John Caulfield is aware of the threats that UCD pose, as he explains below:
🗣 John Caulfield: "We know how strong Cobh are, we had a draw there a month ago and they also beat Waterford. We know that every game is a different challenge. It's our first home Friday night match in over a month. There's great momentum and great support behind the team and we are expecting great encouragement from the stands tomorrow night. We are on a great run of form and we're hoping to keep it going.”
