Manager's Comment
“With ourselves playing Derry and Rovers playing Bohemians something is going to give at the top of the table.

Stephen Kenny has quickly got back into his stride in the eircom league and we'll need to be at the top of our game on Friday.

It's an important game for us not just because it's Derry but because it's our next game.

A big crowd at Richmond is expected and I would urge the home fans to come out again in support of the team.” – John McDonnell .
