    Wexford FC v Galway

    Very comfortable win for Galway tonight as Wexford found it hard to put a dent in the away side’s chassis for the entire game. Is it the gap between full-time and part-time teams? Wexford started with Alex, Adam, Conor C, Mitchell, Joe, Conor B, Frieler, Luka, Dobbsy, Jack D, and Harry. Although Wexford passed the ball around reasonably well in the first half, the main area of concern was the concession of such easy goals. After Alex Moody made a good save from a Galway corner, Wexford allowed Brouder of Galway to have a free run at another corner and his header beat Moody for 1-0 to Galway. On 16 minutes, Stephen Walsh of Galway was let turn and shoot too easily from an angle and it was 2-0. Criminally, Walsh was allowed stand on his own at Wexford’s far post at another Galway corner and it was a simple task to make it 3-0. Wexford had been able to manage a couple of shots on target during this half but all were easy catches for Kearns in the Galway goal. 3-0 to Galway at half-time.

    With Galway sitting back, Wexford were able to run at the Galway defence a bit more in the second half but still didn’t look like cracking open a very resolute Galway defence. Subs for Wexford as this half went on were Conor Davis, Jordon Tallon, Kevin McEvoy, Len O'Sullivan and Evan Farrell. The concession of an odd peno by Wexford which was converted by Galway made it 4-0 and the final whistle was a welcome relief, in truth. Wexford need to learn to defend much better than they did tonight, particularly at set-pieces. Best for Wexford were Jack Doherty, Conor Crowley and Adam Wells. About 300 at the game.

    Wexford's defending was woeful this evening particularly from set pieces. Galway were first to nearly every single corner or free kick hit into the box.
    I've seen Wexford the last two home matches and I'm not entirely sure I'd be happy with how Wexford line out formation wise. There's a lack of width at times and the defending can be a bit haphazard at times. Doherty is a class act but he can be too isolated at times upfront, he needs to drop deeper at times to get the ball and use his undoubted talent on the ball.
