Cork City travel to take on a rejuvenated Galway side in Eamonn Deacy Park on 30th November 2014 at two o’clock in another Continental Tires Women’s National League game.
The Leesiders come off a good performance against Peamount United in Bishopstown which saw them claim a late draw against the Greenogue based side, through a Vanessa Ogbonna strike and a Stacey Paul penalty.
Commenting on the game, Cork City manager Charlie Lynch had this to say,
“Galway will be a difficult trip as they have a lot of dangerous and experienced players like McKey and Cunningham as well as some exciting talents like Kelleher and I know Don will have them playing in a good style.
“Having said that, we were a lot more dangerous going forward against the Peas last Sunday – we really should have had more than two goals on the day — and I’m delighted with how the players are starting to perform in our new system and I know once we tighten things up a little at the back we’ll see more and more results.
“While we’ll be missing a number of players for this game, we’ll travel with a lot of confidence and hopefully will get a result.”
While welcoming back Fiona Considine to full fitness, City are missing a few players through injury with Katie McCarthy still carrying a slight injury from the Castlebar game and being unlikely to feature, Tara Murphy suffering from concussion and Nathalie O’Brien remains out with a broken leg.
Chloe Ahern is nearing full fitness and should hopefully be available for selection in the next couple of weeks. Stacey Paul and Eleanor Lucey will be unavailable for the Rebels due to work commitments.
Injuries – Nathalie O’Brien, Chloe Ahern, Tara Murphy, Katie McCarthy
Absent – Stacey Paul, Eleanor Lucey
Suspensions – None
