Galway United return to league action at Eamonn Deacy Park tonight when the Tribesmen welcome Wexford FC to the west.

This will be the second home game in a row for the Galway side after taking a close 2-1 victory over the Shamrock Rovers last week.

Kevin Farragher sealed the deal right before the whistle with a second goal for Galway United in the 94th minute.

United have four straight league wins in their sights with Wexford FC coming to town, but John Caulfield expects an improved performance from his players after his side struggled for periods against an inexperienced Shamrock Rovers side last week.

“The First Division is tight. Wexford have caused some teams really big problems and they were leading against Bray Wanderers with five minutes to go last week before conceding a few goals.”

Wexford dominated much of the game against the Wanders last week on their home turf, until the Wicklow side put away three goals in the last five minutes.

He added that Jack Doherty, Kaleem Simon and Conor English are very strong attacking players for Wexford.

“They create chances and score goals, we’re aware of their threats, but we’ve had a full week of training to prepare and we have to deliver a top performance now.

“It’s great to have supporters back in the stadium, it’s not as many as we’d like, but it’s still huge for us.

“We’ve done quite well in a short period of time, but we’re just looking to take each game as it comes and we must be ready for each game, and we have to play to our strengths.

“There’s no excuse, if we’re not right or we’re not concentrating on the Wexford game, then we will drop points.”

Galway v Wexford will kick off at 7:45pm on Friday evening at Eamon Deacy Park.
