Galway vs Wefxord by Luke
Galway didn't play in Irish Premier Division for fifteen days, since their matches against Shamrock and Cork were postponed due European obligations of their opponents. Last time the team fought, they ended up narrowly losing to Finn Harps 1:0 away from home on eight July.
Overall, they are now counting five matches without a victory, four games in the current championship and one in the Cup competition. After more than decent start, the team is no longer playing above their own expectations and are having obvious downtrend in their form in last two months. Still, they are quite high at the table, being tied up at fifth position together with St Patricks, Sligo and Finn Harps.
Whole team is now aiming for improvement, as the technical part of the team admitting during the break that they weren't playing up to the desired level. Home side will have defender Marc Ludden (7/1) doubtful for this game, as well as midfielder Alex Byrne (3/0). Goalkeeper Sam Ramsbottom is newly signed player from Tranmere Rovers and is not expect to participate here already, while long term absentee remains forward Jesse Devers (3/0).
Similar to Galway, Wexford Youths also had their previous round game postponed, due to European obligations of St Patricks. During their previous league game, they suffered narrow 0:1 loss at home against Cork, back on tenth July, without showing anything impressive during the ninety minutes.
As in three other previous matches, players of Galway once again failed to score, for the fourth consecutive match and this now starts to be very big problem for them. They have failed to obtain a goal in matches against Bohemians, Derry City and Bray, counting more than 280 minutes without a goal scored. Technician has made many efforts to solve the problem, but failed for now. The team is on a run of five consecutive defeats, currently standing at penultimate position with four points difference from Longford, rock bottom placed side.
Their aim is to overcome Bray, currently four points difference and avoid playing additional play-out matches at the end of the season. Guests will be playing without full back Grace Lee (8/0) and striker Aidan Keenan (no performance this season anyway) due injuries.
Galway might not be in a perfect form, but the visiting side is much more worse at the moment. This is a perfect chance for the hosts to get back to positive results and prevail here, easy or hard.
