Galway United V Waterford FC Match Preview

Another big crowd is expected as Galway United face second-placed Waterford FC at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday at 7:45 pm.

United are looking to bounce back after Monday’s narrow 1-0 defeat away to Longford at Bishopsgate.

After last week’s full-house against Cobh Ramblers, first-team manager John Caulfield has called for another formidable home atmosphere to help his side extend their lead at the top of the table.

Speaking to the club’s media team, Caulfield outlined the importance of the atmosphere in Terryland for tonight’s top-of-the-table clash:

“We’re looking forward to playing in front of what we hope will be another full house.

Keith [Long] has done a terrific job so far, so we want an atmosphere from the start like we had last week.”

Last Meeting

Waterford FC 0-1 Galway United

Galway United climbed to the summit of the SSE Airtricity First Division with a narrow victory over Waterford FC at the RSC on 5th March.

A header from Vincent Borden in the first half was enough to see United past a tricky Waterford side and make it three wins from three to start the 2023 season.
