Limerick unbeaten in three games following Galway draw

It's full-time here at the Markets Field, it finishes 1-1. Posted by Limerick Football Club. on Friday, April 21, 2017 Limerick FC and Galway United played out a 1-1 draw at the Markets Field on Friday night. A Robbie Williams header was cancelled out by a stunning goal by David Cawley with five minutes remaining. An early slip by Galway defender Lee Grace provided Chiedozie Ogbene with the first chance of the game. However, the winger was denied by the legs of Conor Winn in the visiting goal. Chris Mulhall was next to try his luck for the home side from range, but his weak shot was parried to safety by Winn. Limerick intended on utilising the pace of Ogbene with long diagonal balls to the left-hand side and the home side almost profited from this tactic on a couple of occasions. Approaching the half hour mark, great play by Shane Duggan allowed Chris Mulhall to square the ball towards Tosi but Stephen Folan anticipated the danger to clear. Mulhall was carving out most of Limericks half chances, benefiting from a dominant midfield performance by Shane Duggan and Lee-J Lynch. Ten minutes before the break, the goal the home side thoroughly deserved arrived. Robbie Williams rose highest to meet a floated free-kick from Lee-J Lynch to nod the ball past the helpless Conor Winn. Galway looked vulnerable defensively throughout the...

MATCH POSTER: Like and share for your chance to win two free tickets to Limerick FC v Galway Utd this Friday evening, 7.45pm! Posted by Limerick Football Club. on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 Limerick FC play their third home game in a week as they host struggling Galway United at the Markets Field on Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm). Limerick can cement their fourth-placed position in the league with a victory while piling on the pressure on Galway manager Shane Keegan in the process. Limerick suffered a disappointing defeat to Cork City on Monday night in the EA Sports Cup. However, Willie Boland made ten changes and included debutants Tommy Walsh, Tobias Kainz and the impressive Barry Cotter as well as the returning Shane Tracy. Therefore, the defeat against the best ranked team in the country currently was not a big shock. The focus of the club is clearly on the league campaign and the upcoming visit of the Tribesmen. Speaking to the club’s official website following the Cork defeat, interim manager Boland insists the players will quickly move on to the Galway game. “The focus will be on Galway now. We’re in tomorrow. Obviously we had to focus on this game (Cork), but the Galway game was always in the back of our minds. Their league position might suggest that it will be an easier game but it won’t be....
