LIMERICK FC were set to return to EA Sports Cup second round action at the Markets Field this evening at 5pm, following their league defeat to Waterford FC on Good Friday, however the game has now been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. 

On the field, Friday’s 2-0 defeat to high-flying Waterford in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division at the Markets Field saw Tommy Barrett’s charges remain in eighth-place in the top flight table. Injury-hit Limerick have managed to pick up just a single point in their last five league fixtures.

Easter Monday’s EA Sports Cup clash with Cobh Ramblers, currently eighth in the First Division was seen as giving the Blues a break from league action before Friday night’s crucial SSE Airtricity League fixture with Bohemians at Dalymount Park, 7.45pm.

Limerick will need to up their scoring rate as the Blues managed just four goals in their nine league games this season.
