In what will be a crucial few weeks in their season Bohemians travel west this Friday night to face Galway Utd in the Airtricity Premier Division, kick off 7.45pm, know that a win is vital if they are to maintain their push for European football next season.
Pat Fenlon’s side come into this game in solid form. Sitting fifth in the league at present, four points behind fourth place St Pat’s, the Dublin outfit will be full of confidence after a hard-fought win against Dundalk in the FAI Cup quarter-final.
Fenlon also has the luxury of choosing from a full panel for Friday’s game. Defender Ollie Cahill has returned to full training following hamstring injury and may be fit for selection on Friday and has been the only injury concern for his manager.
Galway on the other hand, come into the game still rooted to the foot of the league table. A hugely disappointing 6 points in total so far this season sums up their fortunes so far.
On a positive note they managed a late goal against Dundalk two weeks ago that gave them a 2-2 draw in Terryland and their first league points for five months.
That point has been the only high spot in what has been a dismal season for Galway and Pat Fenlon will be acutely disappointed if his side cannot come away from the west with three points securely in the bag and keep tabs on St Pat’s as the race for that all important European spot hots up. Bohs for the win.
