PREVIEW

Waterford FC can make it nine wins on the bounce in the First Division on Friday when they travel west to face second-place Galway United at Eamonn Deacy Park.

The Blues earned their eighth consecutive victory on Monday night when they defeated Athlone Town 5-2 in Lissywollen. Goals from top goalscorer Phoenix Patterson (X2), Louis Britton - who scored his tenth goal of the campaign as his loan came to an end and has since joined title rivals Cork City and Roland Idowu (X2) gave Danny Searle's side an emphatic victory to leave them four points off Galway United with a game in hand.

This week's opposition, United, were defeated 2-0 by Longford Town at Bishopsgate in their most recent game. John Caulfield's side are four points behind current table-toppers Cork City going into this Friday's fixture.

Waterford and United played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Eamonn Deacy Park the last time the two teams contested in Galway.
