Buncrana drowning victims to be remembered before Youths take on Derry

Saturday's SSE Airtricity Premier Division game between Wexford Youths and Derry City goes ahead in the shadow of the Buncrana tragedy.

The thoughts and prayers of everyone associated with Wexford Youths Football Club are with Derry City Footballer Josh Daniels and the Daniels and McGrotty families.

A mark of respect will be carried out in Ferrycarrig Park before kick off. #FootballFamily

Wexford Youths, still searching for their first win of the season, will be encouraged by their recent performances. A narrow 2-1 defeat to reigning champions Dundalk was followed up by a thrilling 3-3 draw away to Bohemians in Dalymount Park last week.

Shane Keegan was frustrated on Friday night.

'The lads know themselves that to lead three times and not come away with the three points is not good enough and I'm sure you could all see their frustration at the final whistle. But it shows how far we've come as a team and a club that we're leaving Dalymount Park annoyed that we've only picked up a point.'

Wexford Youths are again with out injured trio Aidan Keenan, Peter Higgins and Shane Dunne. Shane Dunne has however returned to individual training and making excellent progress. His return to the first team squad is expected to be another few weeks.

Wexford Youths welcome high flying Derry City to Ferrycarrig Park for a Saturday fixture with a 5pm kick off.
