Cabinteely F.C. welcome UCD to Stradbrook tonight at 19:45 in the SSE Airtricity First Division. UCD are riding high after their Europa League exploits which saw them do both the league and the country proud as they progressed through the first round when many had written them off. They have since returned to League action with a crucial 1-0 win last Sunday against Finn Harps which keeps them in the race for promotion.
Cabo will be looking to build on last weeks performance against Cobh Ramblers where they were unlucky to lose 2-1. Cabo are looking to continue their impressive home form. Cabinteely have picked up 12 of their 13 points at home.
Cabo points won at home
Cabinteely are still without the injured Jamie McGlynn since his nasty injury picked up against Shelbourne where he injured his ankle and dislocated his shoulder. Kevin Knight also misses tonights game through suspension after being given his marching orders late on against Cobh Ramblers last week.
Cabo will be hoping that the trio of Victor Ekanem, Daniel Campbell and Shane O’Neill are passed fit to play tonight. Victor was forced off in the first half last week through injury, while Daniel Campbell and Shane O’Neill missed training through injury this week but may be passed fit for tonights game.
Cabo have played UCD three times so far this season. Winning 1-0 in the EA Sports Cup and losing 2-0 and 6-1 in the League fixtures
UCD are one of only two teams that Cabinteely haven’t got a result against in the League, the other is Shelbourne.
Shane O’Neill is the only Cabinteely player to score against UCD so far. You can watch his goals below!
