The Shannonsiders need to pick up three points to have any chance of getting up into the playoff spots.
Treaty United welcome Kerry FC to the Markets Field this Friday night, as the sides clash for the third time this season.
The game represents Treaty’s 100th competitive match, since their inception in 2020.
There is a lot to play for this Friday, as both sides are desperate for a win. The Shannonsiders need to pick up three points to have any chance of getting up into the playoff spots, while Kerry are rooted to the foot of the table, and would love to improve their points tally.
The pair met already in April and July, with Treaty winning 4-0 and 3-2 respectively. However, Tommy Barrett’s side have only picked up one win since that July meeting, and the manager will be eager his side pick up three points.
That win came in their last league game, against Finn Harps, where a 1-0 victory was secured courtesy of a Dean George strike.
The Shannonsiders were not in competitive action last weekend, although they did face Sligo Rovers in a friendly last Thursday, which they lost 2-0.
Kerry were knocked out of the FAI Cup last weekend, as they fell 1-0 to Drogheda United, and they haven’t won a league game since May.
Treaty come into Friday night’s game as favourites, and will be expecting to come away with three points.
