PREVIEW

Waterford FC will look to keep tabs on the two First Division frontrunners, Cork City and Galway United, when they target to pick up the three points at the Carlisle Grounds on Friday. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.

The Blues go into the fixture in third place on the table, twelve points behind current leaders Cork City who have one game more played. Ten-men Waterford defeated Athlone Town 1-0 at the RSC on Monday thanks to a Louis Britton goal in the second half.

This week's opposition, Bray Wanderers, sit in seventh position on the league standings. The Seagulls drew 1-1 with Wexford FC at Ferrycarrig Park last time out.

Speaking ahead of the Bray fixture, Assistant Manager Gary Hunt told www.waterfordfc.ie:

“Three points and a clean sheet was great for us [v Athlone]. That’s back-to-back wins and successive clean sheets which gives us a good platform to build from.

“Games keep coming and it’s a short turnaround. We had 10 days before the Athlone game but we’ve recovered well now and are looking forward to Friday. Training has been good since that match on Monday but we know Bray will offer another challenge that we have to be ready for.”
