MANAGER’S VIEW: Speaking to WaterfordFC.ie ahead of Monday’s match against Galway United, manager Alan Reynolds said:
“It was a scrappy first half hour but we got going and once we got the goal I think it opened up and we scored some good goals.
“We needed to pick up the points. In fairness to Finn Harps, they’re fighting hard but we showed again the quality we have to score four goals and keep another clean sheet so from that side of things we’re happy.
“The Galway game is a good competitive fixture for us and they’ll prove no easy opposition. We want to be competing in different competitions and having lots of games will allow us to use our full squad and get guys into the team.
“Our squad isn’t the biggest but it’s really competitive and guys know they have to perform to keep their place from game to game. We have guys who are itching to play so we’ll make some changes but we’ll still be strong. It’s a game I want to win.”
TEAM NEWS: Kenny Browne misses out again with a calf injury, while Zack Elbouzedi and Kevin Lynch also miss out after picking up knocks in Friday’s win over Finn Harps.
