Athlone Town Face High Flying Cabinteely

Athlone Town face Cabinteely in their first game of the 2020 SSE Airtricity League first division season in what will be a testing season for the midlanders.

The game will be Athlone’s first of the season after last week’s meeting with Galway United at Eamonn Deacy Park was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Cabinteely started the campaign last week with a 4-2 home victory over Bray Wanderers in the East Coast derby at Stradbrook.

“Athlone will be a difficult game for us” explained Cabinteely coach Eddie Gormley. “We must focus on the task in hand.”

“We’ve had a good week’s training behind us. Athlone obviously didn’t play last week and will be hungry to get a good result. We’ll go there, work hard and see where it takes us.”
