Malahide can keep up run at Wayside

Malahide United have turned their season around after a horrendous start that yielded one point in their opening six Senior Division games.

United head to Jackson Park to take on Wayside Celtic tomorrow as one of the form sides in the top flight and search for a fourth win in-a-row.

Pete Mahon's side has hit their stride in spectacular fashion following that frustrating start.


The United boss has been patient with his squad and they have rewarded the highly experienced Mahon in the past few weeks.

A 5-0 win over Phoenix at the back-end of October sparked the revival and United backed that win up with victory over Greystones in the FAI Intermediate Cup.

The rich run of form continued last Friday night when they got the better of Bangor Celtic by a goal to nil.

That result means more to United than the three points posted; it will build confidence as they look to climb the table with a first away win tomorrow.



Given the form both sides are in, Wayside will not fancy taking on Malahide tomorrow. United are on a decent streak while Wayside have lost their last three matches, including two cup exits. Victory will lift the winner out of the drop zone and the on-form Malahide could be the happier of the two.Verdict: Away Win.


The Tallaght side has dragged themselves up the table recently, picking up seven points out of the last nine on offer. Stones are on a bit of a wobble of late, losing their last two games. Still, the Wicklow side could nick a draw. Verdict: Draw.
