Team news – Cork City v Shelbourne

Shels Manager Ian Morris said he has been pleased to have almost a full roster of players in training this week ahead of a crucial game in Cork on Friday night. 

Shels travel to face Cork City at Turner’s Cross in the SSE Airtricity League First Division on Friday night with just six games to go in the league. 

Morris once more praised fans who have been “scrambling to get tickets” for matches all season and giving the Reds strong support all season.

“There hasn’t been a better set of fans all season on Friday nights – they’ve been falling over themselves getting tickets all season and it’s fantastic to see,” Morris said. 

New signing Stanley Anaebonam has had a full week of training is available for selection on Friday night.

“Stan gives us another option. He can finish with both feet – he’s quick and can deliver too so it’s good to have options,” he added. 

“Everyone is chomping at the bit to get on but for us it is a matter of looking at what suits the game best. 

“A lot of football has been played on the pitch there over the last week so we’ll see how it is and consider that too,” he added. 

Morris said it is an important weekend for the league and says how the table sits after Friday night will signal a lot about how the season will pan out. 

“Cork have been on a decent run. They’re trying to make the play-offs while we have our own objective which we are focused on,” Morris told 

Shelbourne has no suspensions for the game Friday night while JJ Lunney and Gerardo Bruna continue to miss out with injury. .
