Waterford v CCFC – Team news and coverage

Cork City travel to the RSC on Friday, as they face Munster rivals Waterford. The clubs have faced off twice previously this season, with Waterford coming out on top on both occasions. City will look to get one over on the Blues this week, ahead of a fourth meeting of the clubs on September 2nd.

Both clubs come into the game after progressing through the first round of the FAI Cup last week, with a victory over Maynooth University Town seeing the Blues through, and a penalty shoot-out victory over Cabinteely ensuring City were in the hat for the second-round draw.

Speaking ahead of the game at his weekly press conference, John Cotter spoke of the importance of the game:

“It’s massive for both clubs. No matter what side you go down with, or what side they have at the time, it’s never an easy place to go. The crowd down there is always passionate, and we always get a good following down there as well. It’s something you have to look forward to. Hopefully after last week, the boys have gotten a bit of confidence and can take it into Friday and come away with a positive result.”

“A victory would be massive, obviously we need to try and get a bit of momentum and put a few wins together. If we can get a win Friday, hopefully we’ll get a bit of momentum, but Friday isn’t going to be easy by any means. We’ll have to be at our best to get a win down there, but that’s what you have to do. It’ll be tough, we’re under no illusions. Waterford have a lot of very good players, and it’s a game we’ve prepared for. We need to go down there and put in a good performance.”

On the injury front, Mark O’Sullivan is likely to be back in contention while Conor McCarthy is being assessed after being taken off in the game against Cabinteely. Cian Murphy and Cian Bargary are both still sidelined.
