Waterford FC recorded their second away win of the season when they proved too strong for Limerick in The Markets Field on Friday night last.
The three points moved the Blues onto 18 points, the same number of points as unbeaten Dundalk and just one point behind the leaders, Cork City.

“I have no doubt the fans will have RSC rocking for the Cork City game next Friday night. I would urge them to get their tickets for the game early because I think we could be looking at a massive attendance. They are all delighted in there and I’m delighted myself.
“I’m not saying that we were fantastic but there was good character. That’s what I liked about us tonight and that’s what we are. We dig in, work hard and give everything for the shirt. It’s great to get another win but we’ll move on and look to the next game.”
