The playoffs are upon us and United are preparing to face Longford Town in a two-legged tie this week.

Ahead of Wednesday’s playoff fixture, United manager John Caulfield said:
“Gary Cronin is probably the most experienced manager in the First Division – he always gets his team to the playoffs.
“Longford are the most experienced part-time team in the league with players like [Sam] Verdon, [Michael] Barker, [Michael] McDonnell, [Dylan] Barnett and [Shane] Elworthy.
“We know how good they are – we have played them a number of times this year. But we know we are at the business end of the season and we know what we have to do.
“We are looking forward to both matches, we have been preparing hard over the last number of weeks with the playoffs in mind.”
Waterford FC and Treaty United contest the other First Division playoff semi-final.
