CCFC v Waterford – Team news and coverage

Cork City will be looking to bounce back from Friday’s defeat to Sligo Rovers, as they face Munster rivals Waterford at Turner’s Cross on Monday.

The sides met just a couple of weeks ago, at the RSC, with City coming out on top thanks to goals from Conor McCarthy and Mark O’Sullivan. Prior to that, Waterford had recorded two wins against City, both by two goals to nil. City are two points ahead of Waterford in the table, while they also have a game in hand. The visitors come into the game on the back of a 1-1 home draw against Derry City on Friday night.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, City Head Coach Neale Fenn said:

“I’ve looked back on the game but, when you have a quick turnaround between matches, it is difficult to do a lot. We know we have to be a bit more solid, we were too open on Friday. I wanted us to go out and attack and win the game, but the other side of it is that we need to defend better and we will do tomorrow.”

“We will try to be a bit more solid as a unit, but we still want to attack, and we still want to go out and win the game. We feel we can win it, so that will be how we approach it.”

“The games against the teams around you are always big games; you don’t want to lose them, especially at home. Waterford picked up a draw on Friday, and from what I know, they played well and probably deserved a win. We want to go out and win the game; we are at home against the team directly below us in the league, so it’s there for us.”

In squad news, Conor McCarthy returns from suspension, but Gearóid Morrissey and Kevin O’Connor are expected to miss out. It is hoped that Ronan Hurley will be available after missing Friday’s game with a knock, but Cian Bargary and Cian Murphy remain sidelined.
