A rejuvenated Wexford Youths welcome high flying Shamrock Rovers to Ferrycarrig Park on Friday evening in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

A fantastic 4-2 Away win at Longford Town during the week has lifted Wexford Youths up to 10th in the league and has lifted the spirits within the squad.

Shane Keegan said: 'Tuesday night's victory in Longford was a great result. We played some super football at times and the work rate was through the roof. If anybody doubted the belief or commitment of these lads then they got their answer. We had a tough couple of weeks but then that was always going to be the case.'

'Shamrock Rovers have one of the most talented playing squads in the league, but this Friday they will be just another team that we believe we are capable of taking on, and giving a real fight. Our performance in Tallaght showed that while we respect them, we won't fear them. Barry Murphy was in inspired form that night and the lads are looking forward to having another crack at them.'

On the injury front Danny Furlong picked up a minor injury against Longford Town and is doubtful. Peter Higgins, Lee Grace and Aidan Keenan remain on the medium term injury list while Shane Dunne is pushing for his first start of the season following his return from injury.

Kick Off in Ferrycarrig Park is 8pm. #ForzaYouths
