Wexford Youths will take on UCD for the second time in a week on Friday night.

Last week's 82nd minute winner from Shane Dunne sent Youths seven points clear of Finn Harps and nine points clear of UCD in the title race. While the Youths will be fully focused on claiming the league title, Shane Keegan thinks that UCD will be looking over their shoulders.

'We've put ourselves in a decent position now which allows our sole concentration to be on winning this game. UCD will be hoping to gain ground but may also be looking over their shoulder a little bit which brings it's own pressures.'

Although the league table is favourable for Youths; centre half Gary Delaney isn't getting carried away. 'Whatever happened in last week's game is gone and forgotten about. We're going into this game with the same mind-set of we haven't won anything yet.'

Youths will be without the suspended Aidan Keenan who serves a one match ban and Andy Mulligan will miss out after the winger pulled up with a hamstring injury in last weeks win. Better news for Youths fans is that winger Dean Broaders came through training this week after a long lay off and will give Shane Keegan another option if required.

Kick Off at the U.C.D Bowl is 7:45pm
