Match Preview: UCD vs Waterford

Kick-off: 7.45pm, Friday 18th March, UCD BowlSSE-Airtricity-League

After last week's 2-1 victory over Cabinteely, we return to SSE Airtricity League First Division action tomorrow with Waterford United the visitors to the UCD Bowl. A late Georgie Kelly goal was enough to hand us the victory in last week's game in a fantastic move with quick one touch passing leading to the opening. It was Georgie's second goal of the week for us after he also scored in our 3-2 Leinster Senior Cup victory over Crumlin United. Maxi Kouogun also picked up his second goal of the season with a first half header.

Waterford proved difficult opposition for us last year with a number of tight games played out. In the four games played last season we came out on top in three of them with the other game finishing in a nil all draw.

We are delighted to announce that Dan Tobin has this week been nominated for the Three FAI Schools International Player of the Year which will be announced on Sunday.

At this early stage of the season, Collie already has a long list of injuries ahead of Friday's game with seven injuries and one suspension going into the game. Jason Byrne (calf), Samir Belhout (knee), Mark Langtry (calf), Gary O'Neill (ribs), Tomas Boyle (knee), Greg Sloggett (groin) and Jack Watson (tonsilitis) will all be on the side lines for the game. Brian Shortall will serve the second game of his three match suspension after he was sent off in our opening game against Limerick.

Injured: Jason Byrne (calf), Samir Belhout (knee), Mark Langtry (calf), Gary O'Neill (ribs), Tomas Boyle (knee) Greg Sloggett (groin) and Jack Watson (tonsilitis)
