Waterford FC can make it five wins on the bounce on Saturday when they face a strong Longford Town side away from home. Kick-off is at 7:30pm.

The Blues have been in great form recently but they face a tricky test at the Bishopsgate this week. Waterford continued their winning streak with a hard-fought 4-2 victory over Cobh Ramblers last Friday at the RSC. The ever-impressive Phoenix Patterson pulled the Blues level before goals from Tunmise Sobowale (X2) and Callum Stringer ensured victory for Assistant Managers Gary Hunt and David Breen. Waterford remain in third place on the First Division table, nine points behind current leaders Cork City.

Longford Town go into Saturday's clash on the back of a 0-0 draw away to Treaty United last time out. Gary Cronin's side sit in fourth position on the table - one point behind Waterford. A Longford win would put them ahead of the Blues with the same amount of games played.

Paul Martin, Brian Murphy, Eddie Nolan, George Forrest, Richard Taylor, Kevin Joshua, Killian Cantwell, Cian Browne, Jeremie Milambo, Darragh Power, Tunmise Sobowale, Yassine En-Neyah, Romeo Akachukwu, Anthony Wordsworth, Ronaldo Green, Shane Griffin, Niall O'Keeffe, Callum Stringer, Roland Idowu, Dean Larkin, Phoenix Patterson, Nigel Aris, Liam Kervick, Junior Quitirna, Cian Kavanagh, Louis Britton, Owen Oseni.
