Preview | Cork Derby in St Colman’s

This Friday sees Cork Derby number five of 2022 tale place in St Colman’s Park. It also won’t be the last of the year as the two clubs meet in the Munster Cup Final in the coming weeks at Turners Cross.

The Rams come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw at Wexford, a game that saw manager Shane Keegan pick up his first away points as Rams boss at the home of his former club. Conor Drinan and Sean McGrath notched the goals in Ferrycarrig Park as the hosts snuck a late equaliser to share the points after a strong Ramblers performance.

Cork come into the game four points clear at the top of the First Division after Monday’s 0-0 draw with third placed Waterford. These Cork rivals have met four times this year, with the Leesiders winning each clash to date. The recent 1-0 FAI Cup victory was preceded by 2-0 and 1-0 victories in Turners Cross and a 3-2 thriller here in April. Cobh’s last win over Colin Healy’s men came back in 2021 when Jake Hegarty struck the winner.

Ramblers have added to their ranks in the recent transfer window with former City pair Charlie Fleming and Paul Hunt joining alongside Waterford loanee Liam Kervick. City have brought in former Waterford striker Louis Britton to bolster their attack alongside the likes of Cian Murphy and Ruairi Keating.

In terms of squad news, Sean Barron remains absent through injury but it’s a clean bill of health for Shane Keegan apart from that. Danny O’Connell and Darragh Burke are available again after recent absences.

For many years a competitive Cork derby in LOI football was alien to all but in 2022 we have been lucky enough to encounter derby after derby on Leeside.

Kick-off on Friday night is at 19:45 and the game will be streamed live on LOITV.
