“This game gives us another opportunity to mix up the team again. A lot of the lads that didn’t play on Wednesday will play tomorrow so it is an opportunity for them to show what they can do” – John Caulfield, Manager.
Tomorrow’s pre-season encounter against Longford Town will be the first time the two teams face each other since last November’s First Division play-off final defeat. Daire Doyle’s side ultimately earned promotion to the Premier Division after defeating Shelbourne in the promotion/relegation decider.
The Tribesmen have produced two positive performances against Premier Division opposition in pre-season so far, a victory against Finn Harps and a respectable mid-week draw against Sligo Rovers.
United manager John Caulfield is looking forward to yet another test for his side at Bishopsgate.
“This game gives us another opportunity to mix up the team again. A lot of the lads that didn’t play on Wednesday will play tomorrow so it is an opportunity for them to show what they can do.
“The Sligo game during the week was a good test for us. We have done a lot of work on the training ground so far but there is still a lot of work to do. The Longford game will be another challenge for us again.
“Ronan Manning, Killian Brouder, Mikie Rowe and Shane Duggan won’t be involved tomorrow due to small knocks. Other than that, everyone else will get a run-out.”
John Caulfield is sponsored by McGinn’s Hophouse, Woodquay, Galway.
Match Kick’s off at 5:00 pm.
