Cabinteely v CCFC – Team news and coverage

Cork City are back on the road to Dublin this week, as they travel to Stradbrook to face Cabinteely in the First Round of the FAI Cup.

The Leesiders come into the game off the back of a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of St. Patrick’s Athletic last week, after a late Ronan Hale goal gave the visitors the points in a fairly uneventful game. The home side come into the game in a much better run of form, with victories over Limerick, Longford and Bray in their last 5 games, with draws against Shelbourne and Drogheda also. This fixture will be the first-ever meeting of the sides at first team level.

Speaking at his weekly press conference in Bishopstown, City head coach John Cotter looked ahead to the challenge facing them in Dublin: “We need to be ready for a tough game on Friday. We’ve seen them play over the last few weeks and they’re going very well in the First Division. There’s no doubt they’ll be confident going into Friday and we need to be ready, go up there and take the game to them.”

“I went up to watch them against Drogheda, and I watched them last week against Limerick. They’re well organised, they’re fit, they have a threat in the lad Manley up front who has scored a few goals for them. We need to be ready and we need to be at it. The attitude needs to be right and we’ll go up there and take the game to them to try and get through.”

“A good cup run is the most important thing for the club and for the players. We’ve done well in the cup in the last few years. We’ve gotten to four finals in a row and we want to continue that. My main focus at the moment is to do that, and the focus is on Friday. It’s the most important game we have now, and we need to be ready for it.”

On the injury front, City may be without Mark O’Sullivan, who’s chances of making the game are rated as 50-50, after he was forced off early in the clash with St. Patrick’s Athletic. Cian Murphy and Cian Bargary are both still sidelined, but City hope to have everyone else available.
