Matchday 5 – Kerry FC v Cobh Ramblers

The Kingdom return home for Matchday 5 of the SSE Airtricity Men’s First Division tomorrow night with Cobh Ramblers the visitors to Mounthawk Park for a 19:45 kick-off. Kerry come into the game off the back of an impressive draw away from home in Athlone last Friday night. That was Kerry’s first point of the season and Conor McCarthy’s charges will look to secure the first league win of the season against their Munster rivals in Tralee tomorrow night. Cobh Ramblers come into the game after an impressive win against Finn Harps in Ballybofey last time out and will look to build on that result against Kerry tomorrow.

Did you know?

Cobh Ramblers were Kerry FC’s first-ever opponents in senior League of Ireland Football. Kerry hosted their Cork rivals in Mounthawk Park on the opening night of the 2023 season in front of packed-out Mounthawk Park.

Injury update

In his pre-match press conference, Conor McCarthy gave a positive update on the injury front ahead of this one. No fresh injury concerns came out of the Athlone game with the full travelling squad available for selection again this week. Jack Kavanagh is closer to a return from injury but will need to be assessed while Valerii Dolia is making good progress in his rehab from a foot injury and is getting ever closer to making his debut in the coming weeks.

‘What they said’

Conor McCarthy – “Cobh are a very good side, they’ve started the season well to be fair to them. That was a great win for them last week in Ballybofey against Finn Harps which is a tough place to go and to take home 3 points is huge. It’s going to be a difficult game, it will be close. I’d imagine it will be one or two moments that could sway the game either way and hopefully, we will be on the right side of it this week”
