Waterford v CCFC- Team news & coverage

Cork City make the relatively short trip to the RSC on Friday to face Waterford.

City come into the game looking to halt a run of poor results, which saw them concede late on in both of their games last weekend; drawing 1-1 at home to St. Pat’s, before losing 2-1 to UCD on Monday.

Speaking to the media at his weekly press conference ahead of the game, City boss John Caulfield said: “We had a chat with the players on Wednesday morning and there was a good discussion with the lads. They are disappointed, but it is a very tight-knit group and we are all working very hard. We can see the talent these guys have and I believe in them. We just know that, in the last two games, we have let points slip and that is disappointing because our performances have indicated that we should have taken more points.”

“As a management team, we have been here a long time and we have had spells before where things have not gone for us, but you just have to get your head down and work hard. We are going through a difficult spell, but I believe in these lads. Do I think we should be higher up the table? I do.  Do I think we can climb up the table and get into the top four? Absolutely. We are totally determined that we will turn it around.”

“Waterford have a very strong squad and excellent players. The RSC is always a difficult venue for us, so we know it will be one hell of a battle and we have to be ready for it. We are going down there to try and get a positive result; in the last two games, we have been close, but we haven’t done it, so all the lads are bursting for Friday night to see if we can turn it around. There is no-one more frustrated than the players, and we will go there Friday night and give everything we have.”

On the injury front, Caulfield expects to be without the services of Colm Horgan, Cian Murphy, Alan Bennett, Karl Sheppard and Dáire O’Connor, while Garry Comerford is suspended.
