A win on Saturday for 9th placed Treaty United would see them go level with DLR Waves in the table provided DLR lose to Wexford Youths.
Treaty come into this game in a good vein of form with five points from their last four games. United kept their first clean sheet of the season two weeks ago as their meeting with DLR Waves at the Markets Field ended in a scoreless draw. Treaty were narrowly beaten away to Shelbourne the week prior, while they came from behind in recent weeks to record a draw and a win over Cork City and Sligo Rovers respectively.
While the departure of Claire Winter has been a blow, Alban Hysa can still rely on his six Canadian imports as well as youthful players like Grace McInerney and Ruth McDonnell as they bid for a big win.
It has been a dream start for the league’s newcomers who sit in 2nd place coming into this clash at Eamonn Deacy Park.
Galway United entered the league in place of the outgoing Galway WFC and have made plenty of waves since then with victories over top sides such as Shelbourne and Athlone Town. Manager Phil Trill will be delighted with how his charges have performed thus far but he will know that there is plenty more football left to be played.
There is plenty of ex Treaty United representation in the Galway squad with Amy Madden, Nicole McNamara and Jenna Slattery, with the latter of the three having a standout season for the Tribeswomen. Slattery has been finding the net consistently for Galway with four goals in eight games for Galway and she’ll be keen to find the net once more against her local team.
