Shels team news – Wexford v Shelbourne

Fears over Shane Farrell’s substitution through injury against Bray were cleared this week as the Shels player passed all tests and has trained this week ahead of another crucial week’s action for the Reds.

Shels travel to Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night looking to maintain their unbeaten season and gap at the top of the SSE Airtricity League First Division.

Despite their fine form, Shels boss Ian Morris said “this is where teams are at their most vulnerable” as teams look to chase his team.

“We have to keep preparing in the right way and the mindset has to be right. This group of players have that in abundance,” Morris said.

Shelbourne were impressive once more with a 4-1 win away to Bray Wanderers last Friday night in the Carlisle Grounds.

Yoyo Mahdy and Sean Quinn, meanwhile, will have fitness tests ahead of Friday’s game.

Wexford will be buoyed by a new management team, including former players Ian Ryan and Lorcan Fitzgerald, and Morris is impressed by the impact they have made since their introduction.

“You can see the effect they’ve had already there and see what Ian is trying to do,” Morris said.

“At Tolka we were able to see how they can hurt you with their pace and energy,” he added.

With fans set to return to Tolka next week in some capacity, Morris said he is “itching” to see their return.

“The small amount of them last Friday even made a difference, so to hear that noise again in Tolka will be special,” he added.

Shels players Denzil Fernandes and Gerardo Bruna continue to miss out through injury while there are no suspensions on the agenda.
