Preview | Galway host the Rams

The Rams are back on the road this week as we travel West to Eamonn Deacy Park to face league leaders Galway United.

Shane Keegan’s side come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Munster rivals Treaty United, which saw Jack Doherty grab another goal to bring his league tally up to seven. The clash with Galway presents the chance to become the first team to take points off John Caulfield’s men this season, who have picked up a stunning ten wins from ten to date.

Their most recent win came at the expense of Kerry FC, as the Tribesmen ran out 4-1 winners last Friday night in Mounthawk Park, despite going 1-0 down in the first half. The Tribesmen are runaway leaders thus far, boasting a 7-point lead over second place Waterford.

These two sides last faced each-other on St Patrick’s Day earlier this season at St Colman’s Park, with the visitors coming away with a 2-0 victory.

Ramblers will be without Charlie Lyons who serves a one game suspension after picking up five yellow cards. Wilson Waweru is unavailable given the terms of his loan deal from Galway, while Cian Browne remains injured and Pierce Phillips and Michael McCarthy are doubts.

Gavin Colfer will be the man in charge at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday night. 

Kick-off is the usual time of 7:45pm, with the match being broadcast live on LOI TV, match passes can be purchased here.
