League Preview: Cabinteely -v- Drogheda United

CABINTEELY

Cabinteely's penultimate home game of the season sees promotion-chasing Drogheda United visit Stradbrook Park (kick-off 7.45pm).

Pat Devlin's side come into the game on the back of league defeats on the road to Galway United and UCD in recent weeks.

The FAI Cup provided a much-needed morale boost as they overcame Newmarket Celtic in Ennis last week to set up a second round tie with Limerick next Friday.

Second-half goals from Joe Doyle and Luke Clucas saw Cabo past the Clare League side despite Eoin Hayes pulling one back for the home side late on.

Cabinteely have not provided team news.

DROGHEDA UNITED

Drogheda United will look to take one step closer to a promotion play-off with victory over Cabinteely on Friday night.

Tim Clancy's side come into the game on the back of indifferent league form, having drawn with Wexford and Galway United in their last two games.

The Boynesiders produced the shock of the FAI Cup first round last week, however, when they knocked out 24-times winners Shamrock Rovers.

Chris Lyons' first-half penalty was enough to see the First Division side past the Hoops at United Park on Friday night.

They face a Cabinteely side who brought an end to their unbeaten start to the season in March, knocking them out of top spot.

“We weren’t on our game last time we came here and Cabo made us pay for it,” Clancy told the club's official website.

“There’s only four games left to play so there’s no more second chances left, we have to turn the remaining games into wins.

“If we show the same motivation and commitment that we did last week, I’m confident we’ll come away with a positive result.”

Clancy has a full squad to choose from as captain Sean Brennan returns from a one-game suspension.

 

Referee: Sean Grant.

 

MATCH STATS
