After three away fixtures on the spin, Cabinteely return to Stradbrook on Friday to host Athlone Town in the SSE Airtricity League First Division.

MANAGEMENT TEAM VIEW

Cabinteely Director of Football Pat Devlin is looking for his charges to get back to winning ways.
“Every game in football is different. Results have not been going our way. We have never, ever had it easy against Athlone. It’s going to be very interesting from both clubs’ points of view.”
He added “It would be nice to change the result and get a win. That is what we must do. That is what we have to put the emphasis on.”
