Preview | Rams travel to RSC

Ramblers are back on the road this Friday as Shane Keegan’s side travel eastwards for a Munster Derby with Waterford. It’s a case of second against third in the table and it should make for an interesting clash on Suirside.

The Rams come into the tie on the back of two 4-1 home victories. Last time out Finn Harps were disposed of in St Colman’s Park, thanks to goals from Charlie Lyons, James O’Leary and a Liam Kervick brace. Such a display earned First Division Team of The Week spots for both Lyons and Kervick.

Waterford had seen a resurgence under new manager Keith Long but that has hit a blip in recent weeks, with the Blues coming into Friday on the back of two defeats, at home to Wexford and away to runaway league leaders Galway. Waterford will remain dangerous however, and star striker Ronan Coughlan now has a total tally of 15 goals making him the league’s top scorer.

The two sides last met in early April at St Colman’s Park, with Waterford claiming the points with a 3-1 win. Ramblers’ last win over the Blues came in the 2019 Munster Cup and one has to go back to April 2016 for a last Cobh win at the RSC.

Liam Kervick is ineligible for Friday night given his loan arrangement from Waterford, while Jack Doherty, Pierce Phillips and Cian Browne remain unlikely to feature through injury.

Manager Shane Keegan gave his thoughts on the game earlier this week,
“We always look at the Waterford and Galway games as bonus games. I’d be shocked if they didn’t finish quite a bit ahead of the rest. Against the two of them you are well and truly the underdog. At the same time, we’re on a high at the moment, it’s about time we took a scalp. We’re going well and it’s not a bad time to play them, as good and all as they are. They are a serious outfit however and it will be a big ask.”

Marc Lynch is the man in the middle for the tie, which kicks off at 7:45pm in the RSC and will be broadcast live on LOITV.
