We’ve had two good results, but now we’re meeting a different side, it’s a different game and UCD will present us with a different set of scenarios and problems.“We’re looking forward to the game, it will tell us a lot about how far we’ve come in terms of confidence and progression over the last few weeks.“Every game is different, we won’t be resting on our laurels. We’ve already had two difficult games against UCD this year and we’ll be treating this game as a one-off.“Let’s see what we can bring to the table and what performance levels we can reach. Hopefully it will lead to another positive result.”TEAM NEWSMaurice Nugent (ankle), Mikey Whelan (hamstring) and Conor Layng (cruciate) are sidelined for the trip to the UCD Bowl.MATCH OFFICIALSReferee: Robert HennessyAssistant: Adam TszampelAssistant: Patrick O’ConnorFourth Official: Adam PatchellGALWAY UNITED GOALSCORERSDanny Furlong – 7Eoin McCormack – 7Conor Barry – 7Alan Murphy – 2Marc Ludden – 2Ronan Manning – 2Carlton Ubaezuonu – 2Stephen Kenny – 1Ryan Connolly – 1Robbie Williams – 1Stephen Walsh – 1FORM GUIDEUCDUCD 2-0 Drogheda UnitedFinn Harps 1-3 UCDUCD 1-5 Longford TownUCD 1-1 ShelbourneWexford FC 0-3 UCDGALWAY UNITEDGalway United 1-2 Finn HarpsWexford FC 0-0 Galway UnitedGalway United 1-2 ShelbourneGalway United 4-1 Athlone TownCobh Ramblers 1-2 Galway UnitedLAST MEETINGMay 11th, 2018 | Galway United 2-0 UCDGalway United goalscorers: Conor Kearns (OG) and Ryan Connollyprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img
