Playoff chasing Treaty United travel to Cobh for Ramblers clash

Tommy Barrett’s side are unbeaten in their last three First Division games.

Treaty United travel to third placed Cobh Ramblers on Friday evening (KO 7:45PM), knowing they need a positive result to keep up any hope of securing a playoff place this term.

The sides have already met three times this season, with Ramblers winning two of the meetings. The pair played out a 1-1 draw in April.

Eight points separate the two teams in the table, with Cobh looking likely of securing a coveted playoff spot.

The Shannonsiders come into the game off the back of a massive result, coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with high-flying Waterford last week.

Tommy Barrett’s men had been unbeaten in the two games before that, meaning they travel to St Colman’s Park with a three-game unbeaten streak they will want to extend.

Their opponents are without a win in their last four league outings, suffering a 4-1 loss to table toppers Galway United last week.

While Cobh have gotten the better of their Limerick counterparts so far this season, the contrasting form coming into this clash means the tie could go either way.

All eyes will be on Success Edogun, the 22-year-old centre-forward scored two goals last time out, to single-handedly drag his side back into the game.

The prospect of Edogun lining up alongside Enda Curran or Dean George, means that Treaty come into this game with an array of goal threats.

It will be a return to Cork for Treaty defender Ben O’Riordan, who spent six years with Ramblers before moving to Shannonside. He joins Lee Devitt and Stephen Cristopher as current Treaty players who have spent time at the Cork outift.
