Match Preview | Wexford Youths
After progressing into the EA SPORTS Cup Quarter-Final, Galway United turns its attention back to the league campaign on Friday night.
The Tribesmen will make the long trip South to face newly promoted side Wexford Youths at Ferrycarrig Park.
Galway United’s last league outing was against Cork City at Eamonn Deacy Park, the match finished 2-2 and when United and Wexford last met in the league in 2014, that match also finished with the same scoreline at Eamonn Deacy Park.
On Friday night, Tommy Dunne expects Shane Keegan’s side to react to two recent losses against St Patrick’s Athletic and Limerick FC.
TOMMY DUNNE | “IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US TO BE POSITIVE.”
“With Wexford Youths being at home, they’ll be looking for an improvement and bounce in results. They played what is on paper a Premier Division team in Limerick. It was always going to be a tough ask, no matter what side they played.
“From our point of view going to Wexford, we’ve done it before, we know it’s going to be a tough game. Dundalk and Derry City both went and got difficult games. It’s not going to be any different for us.
“We’re going to Wexford and we’re thinking we can get a result there, we know they will feel the same. I’d imagine Shane Keegan is happy with the competitiveness of his team, Pats aside, they’ve been there or thereabouts in games.
“We’re trying to push on. We feel if we can get the three points, it will be a fantastic result, but no more than that. There’s a long way to go. It’s important for us to be positive and try and go and win the game.”
Jesse Devers (groin), Armin Aganovic (knee) and Kevin Devaney (leg infection) are all ruled out of Friday’s trip to Ferrycarrig Park.
