Shelbourne v Cabinteely

SSE Airtricity League – First Division

Tolka Park– May 26th – KO 7.45pm


Shelbourne host Cabinteely at Tolka Park on Friday next, in the SSE Airtricity League, First Division. Kick off at the Drumcondra venue in 7.45pm

Last weekend saw Shelbourne travel to Ferrycarrig Park for their game with Wexford FC and came away empty-handed, the home team scoring after just three minutes (Thomas Croke) and apart from a late flurry from Shelbourne in the last ten minutes, Damian Locke’s charges had no great difficulty in holding out for their first league win of the season.

Friday’s opposition, Cabinteely, got back on winning ways with a 2-0 win over Athlone Town at Stradbrook, with both goals being scored by Kieran Waters (58’ and 90’). Waters is now the leading scorer in the First Division, with seven goals from thirteen games.

Cabinteely are now in fourth position in the league on 17 points, with Shelbourne two points behind them in fifth position. Cabo’s goal stats are 16 for and 14 against, whereas Shelbourne have scored 13 and conceded 16.

The first league game played between these sides this season, played at Stradbrook, ended with Shelbourne coming out on top 1-0 with a very late goal from James English.  

Of the four games played between the sides last season, Shelbourne won three (0-4, 2-1 and 1-2), with their first meeting of that season ending in a 1-1 draw.

James English and Alan Byrne return from suspension this week, however Derek Prendergast misses out having collected five yellow cards. Dylan Kavanagh and and Jackson Ryan are both injured, while Aidan Collins and Jamie Quinn are rated as doubtful.
