Limerick are going to take on Cork City in the 19th round of Irish Premier Division on Monday evening.

However, they managed to book a convincing 6-3 win away to Waterford in the latest round and break their streak of three defeats. Before that clash, they have scored just eight goals in 18 matches and their last game may indicate that Tommy Barrett’s side are going to improve in the rounds to come.

Cork City are keeping up the title race with Dundalk and they are still two points away from their rivals, however they have played one game less. Graham Cummins and the lads secured a dominant 4-0 win against Bray Wanderers last Friday and continued their unbeatable run. The visitors have been playing fine at away grounds, however they snatched just a point from the last two outings.
