SSE Airtricity League Premier Division
Dundalk -v- Waterford FC
Monday, July 01, 2019
Kick Off: 7.45pm
Referee: Derek Tomney
After Friday’s late defeat, Waterford FC are on the road this Monday with a trip to face league leaders Dundalk.
There was late heartbreak on Friday as Michael Barker scored a late winner for Bohemians who picked up a 2-1 win in the RSC.
A Rory Feely own goal had given Bohs the lead before Barker put into his own net to level before the break. But defender Barker then struck a 93rd-minute winner.
Despite the defeat, manager Alan Reynolds will have taken plenty of encouragement after a good performance on Friday night.
Manager View: Speaking ahead of Monday’s trip to Dundalk, manager Alan Reynolds said:
“We were really disappointed to concede late and lose on Friday. It was a good performance and we’ll take lots of positives from it and look to bring that into Monday.
“Dundalk are the champions and league leaders but we have to go and compete there. They’re an excellent team but we have quality, too; we need to make sure we’re on our game and we’ll give it a go.”
Team News: Zack Elbouzedi and Kevin Lynch remain sidelined while Karolis Chvedukas and Dean Walsh are also expected to miss the game through injury. Georgie Poynton returns from suspension while Dean O’Halloran is available for selection after completing a loan spell with Bray Wanderers.
