WEXFORD

Wexford welcome Cobh Ramblers to Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night (kick-off 8pm) looking to end a run of four straight league defeats.

Damian Locke's side haven't won since the opening day but, since a heavy 6-1 defeat to Drogheda United, they've been edged out 1-0 in their last two games.

Last Friday Wexford tasted defeat at how to Shelbourn courtesy of Arran Molloy's second-half strike.

Locke will be without the injured Conor Sutton, while Owen McCormack continues to serve a three-match suspension from the red card picked up in the defeat to Finn Harps.

 

COBH RAMBLERS

After two strong campaigns that saw them finish third and second, it hasn't quite happened yet this season for Cobh Ramblers.

After picking up four points in their first two games, Stephen Henderson's side have gone on a run of three straight defeats.

Last week saw UCD take all three points from St Colman's Park thanks to goals from Liam Scales and Maxi Kouogun in a game that kicked off an hour late due to transport issues.

 

Referee: Eoghan O'Shea

 

MATCH STATS

The teams have already met once this season, in the first round of the EA Sports Cup, where Cobh prevailed on penalties after the match finished 0-0.

Of their four meetings last season, Cobh won three while the first game in St Colman's Park was drawn 1-1.
