News and Match Preview - v Cobh Ramblers

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Cobh Ramblers v Shelbourne
SSE Airtricity League – First Division
St. Colman’s Park – May 25th – KO 19.45 

Friday night sees Shelbourne on their travels again, this time to the South and the County Cork town of Cobh, where they will take on the local Ramblers in the SSE Airtricity League First Division. Kick-off at St. Colman’s Park is scheduled for 7.45pm
On Saturday last, Shelbourne were away to Longford Town, with both teams hoping to get the three points on offer, to close the gap between their side and UCD at the top of the table on 26 points – Shelbourne being in fifth place on nineteen points, with Longford just one place below and with one point less.


As it happened, Longford and Shelbourne drew 1-1, each picking up one point, while UCD went further ahead, taking all three points from their game against Athlone. Shelbourne’s goal was scored by ex-Longford player Dave O’Sullivan, while the home side’s goal was scored by ex-Shelbourne player, Dylan McGlade.  

Cobh Ramblers game last week was against away to Finn Harps and the Cork side made the long trip home with the three points, courtesy of Cian Leonard’s goal after 22 minutes.

Shelbourne and Cobh have played once this year already, in late March, when the winning and only goal of the game was scored by the Division’s leading scorer to date, Dave O’Sullivan, just before halftime in a tight affair with both sides struggling to create many chances of note. 
The four games played between the sides last season were tight affairs, with three games producing just a single goal in each case, Cobh winning both away games and Shelbourne winning one in St. Colman’s, with the other drawn 1-1.
Manager Owen Heary reports no injuries, so with no suspensions, he will be in a position to select from a full squad.
