Limerick FC look to pick up a welcome win on the road

Darren Murphy, Limerick FC, in action against Bray

LIMERICK FC will be anxious to improve their run of results away from home when travelling to St Colman’s Park for a crucial SSE Airtricity League First Division fixture this Saturday evening, 7pm. Limerick suffered a third defeat in their last four league fixtures when going down 3-2 to Drogheda Utd at United Park on Friday night last.

The results saw the Blues slip down to fifth place in the First Division table, now eight points behind leaders Cabinteely.

Limerick will be anxious to improve upon their away form this season when making the trip to East Cork this weekend.

Limerick have lost four of their six away games this season in the First Division. The Blues have, however managed to win the other two fixtures on the road this term, against Cabinteely and Galway Utd.

Saturday’s opponents Cobh sit seventh in the First Division table, six points behind the Blues. Ramblers have lost half of their 12 league fixtures.

A combination of injuries and suspensions meant boss Tommy Barrett was only able to name four substitutes on the bench for the game with Drogheda. Robbie Williams and Aaron Fitzgerald missed out through injury, while Sean McSweeney and Jason Hughes were suspended.
