TREATY United will look to continue their strong promotion push in the SSE Airtricity League First Division this Friday when travelling to the Midlands to take on basement side Athlone Town at Athlone Town Stadium, 7.45pm.

Treaty defeated the top-placed side in the First Division on Friday last when stunning high-flying Cork City 2-0 at Turners Cross and Tommy Barrett's charges will be looking to follow up by defeating bottom-placed Athlone this Friday.

Treaty currently occupy fifth spot in the First Division table, the final promotion play-off position. The Limerick-based side enjoy a four-point advantage over sixth-placed Wexford FC in the battle to secure a promotion play-off position at the end of the regular season.
