Cabinteely will look to record back-to-back wins for the second time this season when hosting Cobh Ramblers on Friday at Stradbrook.

MANAGEMENT TEAM VIEW

After inflicting a first defeat of the campaign upon First Division leader Athlone Town last week, Cabinteely FC Assistant Manager/First Team coach Eddie Gormley is hoping the side can build on that positive result.
“It was a great win last week. But we are under no illusion that it is going to be a very tough game against Cobh. They have a nice mix of experienced and young players.”
He continued “We are looking to build on last week’s result. All we can do is prepare well; train as best as we can and see what happens in the game.”

TEAM NEWS

Record appearance holder Kevin Knight is suspended for Cabo. Defender Andy O’Brien (knee) is also ruled out.

REFEREE
