Galway United travel to Stradbrook Road on Friday in search of their first victory of the season against an unbeaten Cabinteely outfit.

The Tribesmen will be aiming to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Athlone Town last Friday in Lissywollen.

Cabinteely have started the season impressively, defeating Wexford and Cork City in their opening two fixtures.

Galway Bay FM’s Tom Byrne got the thoughts of Galway United manager John Caulfield.
