Match Preview: Cork City WFC vs. Wexford Youths Women

Wexford Youths Women travel to Bishopstown Stadium to face Cork City WFC this Saturday evening, looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.
 
Last weekend the Youths took over top spot in the Continental Tyres Women's National League following a hard-fought 1-0 win against Peamount United at Ferrycarrig Park.


Cork have also made a strong start to their year, sitting mid-table in fourth and are bolstered this year by major new signing from Glasgow City, Clare Shine.
 
Speaking ahead of the game manager Laura Heffernan was fully aware of how big a challenge Cork City would pose:
 

"Bishopstown is a difficult ground to get a result in. Cork are always a tough test and this week will be no different, we are expecting a really even game.

With the likes of Saoirse Noonan, Claire Shine and Evelyn Daly we know they will pose a real goal scoring threat. It is another big challenge for us, but one we are looking forward to"



Midfielder Orla Casey has returned from international duty with Ireland's U-17 international side.  Amy Walsh, Lauren Dwyer, Tamara Furlong and Emma Hansberry are unavailable, while Ciara Rossiter, Rianna Jarrett and Edel Kennedy all remain absent through injury.
 
Kickoff at Bishopstown is set for 5.00pm


Live match updates will be available from the official club twitter account
