Shelbourne Ladies midfielder Siobhan Killeen has admitted it is hard not to think of winning the Women’s National League title as they face UCD Waves on Wednesday night.

 

Mark Leavy’s side will be crowned Champions and claim a league and cup double if they can draw against UCD Waves at Morton Stadium tomorrow night, with kick-off at 7.30pm. 

 

However, if UCD Waves can claim a win against Shels, then the Continental Tyres Women’s National League will go down to the final weekend of the season. 

 

Unbeaten Shels will be looking to seal the WNL title and Killeen admits the Dublin side are in a great position going into Wednesday night’s game.

 

Killeen said: “It is hard not to think that we can win the title. UCD Waves is always one of the biggest games of the season.

 

“We are in a great position but our management have kept reminding us, we were in the same place UCD are in last season.

 

“We got Wexford Youths WFC back to a playoff after everyone was saying it was over. It’s the same for UCD, UCD must be thinking the same.

 

“It’s a good aim for us to beat UCD as we would have beaten every team this season, we also want to keep our unbeaten record going.”

 

Shels are without the suspended captain Pearl Slattery for the game after her red card against Wexford Youths and Rebecca Creagh is still out injured. 

 

“It’s not just about results for us,” added Killeen. “Mark Leavy and the staff want us to improve every game, it’s about performances and results.”

 

“The cup final win over Wexford was a great performance and result, and were able to build on that and improve from there on.”
