Limerick vs Galway United FC
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 20th October 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Markets Field (Limerick).
Galway United will be looking for the salvation points at Markets Field where they have to look for the victory given they have a tough home fixture with the last year’s champions Dundalk next week in the last round.
The hosts, on the other side, need appoint to mathematically remove all doubts about saving the elite class status being five points off their Friday’s rivals in the red zone with two games left to play.
The Super Blues opened the new season in the higher division in a super string fashion announcing the top three challenge, but it never happened as their form saw a huge slide midway through the campaign.
The English manager Neil McDonald took charge of the team in May, but has only managed to raise the spirits in the finish of the season which saw Limerick producing some fine displays on both ends.
The hosts head into this unbeaten in four after home wins over Cork City and Drogheda United and away draws with Bray Wanderers and St. Patrick’s Athl.
Galway have been red-hot in the final third recently, but did such form come a bit too late for Shane Keegan and his men?
The Tribesmen bagged nine during the run of four straight games without a loss (two wins and two draws), but a point from Markets Field will likely not be enough for them to avoid the drop at the end of the season.
