Galway United

Last Friday evening the home fans who attended Galway United v Cork City expecting the worst were treated to an outstanding performance from Shane Keegans men. The 1-1 draw, which brought an end to Cork’s amazing winning streak, was exhilarating from start to finish. Now Galway United are the ones on the unbeaten run, eight games without defeat is fantastic but with only two league wins in that period the clash against Finn Harps this Friday evening is a real six pointer. With the Maroon Army looking destined to be relegated a few weeks ago a win against the Donegal outfit would see them move clear of the relegation zone for the first time this season.
