SSE Airtricity League Premier Division
Bray Wanderers -v- Waterford FC
Friday, June 15, 2018
Kick Off: 7.45pm
Referee: Robert Hennessy
Waterford FC will look to consolidate third place going into the mid-season break this Friday with a trip to face Bray Wanderers in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
The Blues picked up three points last weekend with a 2-0 win at home to St Patrick’s Athletic. The win, with goals from Courtney Duffus and Izzy Akinade, ensured the Blues kept a firm hold of third place in the Premier Division table.
The sides met just a month ago in the Carlisle Grounds in a rearranged fixture with the home side levelling late to deny the Blues the three points.
Faysel Kasmi scored either side of a Derek Daly strike in a 3-1 win for Alan Reynolds’ side in the reverse fixture at the RSC in April.
Blues first-team coach Paul Cashin is looking to go into the mid-season break on a high this Friday:
“I think that the bounce back over the last few weeks when we’ve lost games and come back the following week is something that the lads have developed themselves. They have developed as a group but they have this no lose attitude.
“Again we need to look forward to the Bray game. It was 2-2 in Bray last time and we were disappointed not to win that game. We didn’t feel that we played very well up there so we’ll be trying to put things right after the disappointment of that late penalty a couple of weeks ago.”
TEAM NEWS: John Kavanagh (knee), Garry Comerford (foot) and Paul Keegan (calf) continue to miss out. Stanley Aborah and David Webster are suspended.
