Wexford FC NEXT UP | The lads are back in League action on Friday night with a trip to Tolka Park to take on League leaders… https://t.co/t9Ra829RH7

Wexford FC return to Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night for Week 5 of the 2018 League season where they face Shelbourne FC.

The Reds from Tolka Park arrive in fine form after defeating Cobh Ramblers in their last League game and knocking Bray Wanderers out of the League Cup on Monday night with a convincing 3-0 win. One of the men to watch will be David O'Sullivan who has five goals already to his name this season. Shelbourne were the first side Wexford ever met in a competitive fixture where they knocked us out of the Leinster Cup in our maiden year as Wexford FC in 2017. Our League record stands at two wins and two losses but this is the first time we meet in 2018.

Wexford FC will be hoping to return to winning ways after last weeks narrow defeat to Finn Harps in Ballybofey where we battled for most of the second half with ten men. Manager Damian Locke took a lot of positives from the game:

"I was really happy with the Harps performance, it was a good response from the boys. Unfortunately we got nothing from the game. Shels on Friday night will bring a different threat but if we match the level of performance last week we will be well in the game".

There were no new injuries to report after the Harps game but Owen McCormack who got the red last week will be missing through suspension. Kealan Gaffney who spent a bit of time with Shelbourne at under age level may retain the the number one spot after Danny Bolgers departure from the club this week, while Aaron Dobbs returns to be in contention with a start after been away with the Irish u19 squad who unfortunately just missed out on Euro qualification.  

Kick off at Ferrycarrig Park is 8pm Friday.
