With just three home games remaining, Wexford Youths host Bray Wanderers knowing that this is a critical tie if they are going to hold on to their Premier League status.

The mood is high in the club, fresh from capturing a hard-earned point from third placed Derry City and the star signing of Wexford man Lee Chin giving the club a welcome boost.  Bray are in fine form themselves, winning the last three games in a row and conceding just once.

The various league permutations are now at the forefront of everybody's mind at Ferrycarrig Park.  Wexford currently sit four points behind Finn Harps in 10th.  The Youths know that should they nick a win from The Seagulls and Finn Harps fail to defeat St. Patrick's Athletic in Finn Park, the Youths will move to within one point of safety.

Manager Shane Keegan recognised the importance of the game, but was confident that his side would perform on the day:

"There's no two ways about it, it's a huge game for us. But so far this season we have tended to produce out when it's been most needed and I believe that will be the case again against Bray"

"It's hard to understate just how much of a boost it gives the players when we have a big crowd supporting us so I really want to call on the football community in Wexford to get out and get behind us for this one."

TEAM NEWS:  Danny Furlong has returned to match fitness, having started Monday night's game away to Bohemians.  Gary Delaney is a confirmed injury while Stephen Last is a doubt.  After confirmation of his signing mid-week, Lee Chin is fully available for Friday's game.

Kick off in Ferrycarrig Park is set for 8pm
