Galway United return to action following the league’s two-week break as they welcome Longford Town to Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday at 7:45pm.
The Tribesmen are coming into this one on a seven-game unbeaten run which dates back to their only defeat of the season which came at the hands of this week’s opponents. United will look to right that wrong this week as they aim to make it three wins in a row, following back-to-back victories against Wexford FC and Finn Harps.
Longford Town enter this fixture without a win in their last four games, but a draw against second-placed Waterford in that run and their previous success in this fixture will give the visitors some belief heading into Friday night’s encounter.
THE MANAGER'S THOUGHTS 🗣
“We’re back after the break and looking forward to our first game back, and a big crowd getting right behind us. Stephen has done a good job with Longford are the only team to beat us, they’ve been excellent. It’s going to be a very competitive, they’re defensively very strong.”, SENIOR MEN'S MANAGER
