Dundalk v Shelbourne

Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup – Round Two

Oriel Park – May 29th – KO 7.45pm

Shelbourne travel up the M1 on Friday night for their Second Round Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup game with Dundalk at Oriel Park. Kick-Off at the Carrickmacross Road venue is scheduled for 7.45pm.

Dundalk – last season’s winners and current leaders of the Premier Division of the SSE Airtricity League – defeated St. Patricks Athletic 2-0 at Richmond Park last Friday night, with two goals from Daryl Horgan.

While Dundalk were disposing of Pats on the banks of the Camac, Shelbourne were defeating Roddy Collins’s Waterford United 1-0 on the banks of the Tolka, courtesy of a penalty scored by Gareth Coughlan, which was awarded when Shels striker Philly Hughes was taken down in the area.

The last meeting of Dundalk and Shelbourne was at Oriel earlier this season (April 7th) in the EA Sports Cup, when, with both sides playing some fringe players, the home side came out on top, with a 1-0 win – the goal coming from John Mountney after 11 minutes.

Over the years, these two sides have met twenty times in the FAI Cup (including replays), Shelbourne winning on nine occasions, Dundalk on seven, with four draws. In these games, Shelbourne have scored a total of 36 goals, with Dundalk scoring 34.

Shelbourne go into Friday’s game, with a number of injuries Simon Dixon (out for the season), Jack Brady (leg), Dave Ryan (knee), and Conor Earley (knock received in Waterford game). Dylan McGlade in doubtful with a shin injury.
