Galway United host Bray Wanderers at Eamonn Deacy Park tomorrow at 7.45 pm.
United can keep tabs with table-toppers Cork City with a win this week.
The Tribesmen, who were defeated 2-1 by Waterford at the RSC last week, are currently four points behind City going into Friday’s fixture.
This week’s opposition, Bray Wanderers, sit in seventh place on the table. The Seagulls were beaten 3-0 by Longford Town in their most recent First Division outing.
Speaking ahead of Friday’s encounter, United manager John Caulfield said:
“We know we are in the business end of the season, and we know we can’t afford to drop points.
“Pat Devlin always has a well-organised team, and they have picked up quite a few good results this season.
“They have a very talented squad, so we have to be at our best in front of our home supporters - we are looking forward to the game.”
