Following a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Derry City on Friday night, Cork City will be back in action on Monday night, as Tommy Dunne’s side face Wexford Youths in the EA Sports Cup at Turner’s Cross.
City reached the final of the competition last season, only to lose out to the Candystripes by a goal to nil in the final at Turner’s Cross, and City manager Tommy Dunne told CorkCityFC.ie that his side would love to go one better this season: “Obviously we reached the final of this competition last season, and it would be great to go one better this season, but you never know what cup competitions will throw up. If we can do that again, it would be fantastic, as it is a major trophy and we will be aiming to win it.”
“Wexford have always been tough opponents for us, and I have no doubt that they will be the same again. They have had a good start to the season, and we played them in a pre-season fixture which we won, but they showed that they are a decent side, and we will have to perform well if we are to progress.”
Shane Duggan will serve the final game of his suspension after his sending off against Drogheda United, while Stephen Mulcahy, Kevin Murray and Neal Horgan all remain sidelined with knee injuries. Dunne has no further injury concerns after the trip to Derry, but will reassess his squad in training on Sunday.
