Cork City FC return to home league action on Friday evening, as they welcome Cobh Ramblers to Turner’s Cross. It will be a first home game for City since 20 May.
The Rebel Army come into the game off the back of Saturday’s 1-1 draw away to Longford Town, while Ramblers were defeated 3-0 at home to Wexford last Friday.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference in Bishopstown, City boss Colin Healy said: “Each time I have come up against Cobh – whether it was in the academy or first team football, it has always been very difficult. Friday will be no different. No matter what, it’s always a difficult game. They’ve had a difficult season, and with Ivan Bevan in charge now, things could be different. The system could be different.”
“We’ve got a few missing, but we’ve got a good squad. Hopefully the lads can go and perform, go and show people what they can do, and we can get a few goals.”
“The players love playing in front of a packed Turner’s Cross, when the fans are in, and the place is rocking, that’s what Cork City is all about. We’re all looking forward to another big crowd on Friday night.”
Tickets for the game can be purchased via TicketCo here, and will also be available from the ticket huts outside Turner’s Cross prior to kick-off. The match will also be broadcast on LOI TV, with commentary from RedFM’s Ruairi O’Hagan, joined by Davin O’Neill. You can purchase a single match pass for just €5, here.
