The Wanderers host Shamrock Rovers at the Carlisle Grounds tonight in what is sure to be an action packed evening both on and off the pitch.
Wanderers manager Gary Cronin has seen his side have a two week gap in fixtures, something which following a challenging set of fixtures would have been a welcome break.
Long term injury victims Hugh Douglas and Andrew McGovern are making steady progress as they aim to be fit for next season. Jake Ellis & Byron O’Gorman are having injuries assessed and will be checked again closer to kick off. Darragh Gibbons returns to the squad after serving a one game ban having been sent off in the FAI Cup loss against Finn Harps.
Speaking ahead of the match Wanderers manager Gary Cronin said,
“I’m excited about tonight’s game. We have another chance to go head to head with another massive club with an established full time set up. I said it for our last home game against Dundalk, coaches and players should always want to play against the best teams and tonight is another great opportunity for us to perform against a top side. Myself and the players are looking forward to the challenge tonight and very much hungry for the game after not having a fixture last week.”
Off the pitch the Wanderers relaunch the junior supporters club tonight and will also announce the new ambassador to the junior supporters club. It’s sure to be a busy but fun night at the Carlisle so get down early and cheer on the seagulls.
Kick off is at 7:45pm.
