Cork City welcome champions Dundalk to Turner’s Cross on Friday, in their final home game of the season.
The Rebel Army come into the game having secured their safety in the Premier Division after a 3-2 victory over UCD last Friday. The visitors, having already retained their title as Champions, come to Turner’s Cross off the back of a 2-1 loss to Bohemians in Dalymount Park.
Speaking at the weekly press conference in Bishopstown, Neale Fenn said: “I sensed a little bit of a bounce this week in training, it’s been really bright. It looks like a bit of a weight has been taken off the lads with the win (against UCD). There’s a really good feeling around the squad this week.
We’re going into the game on Friday, it’ll be difficult. Dundalk have the strongest squad, it’ll be very difficult. The two teams were rivals up until this season, so they won’t want to come here and be beaten. I’m sure they’ll come here and put out their best team and give it their best shot.”
On the injury front, City will be boosted by the return of some players that have missed the last few games through injury: “Conor McCarthy picked up a problem yesterday with his quad, so we’ll have to monitor that. Ronan Hurley is back training fully which is great news, Kevin O’Connor and Garry Buckley are back so we have a full squad to pick from.”
