Despite Wexford's position they've only been losing narrowly to the likes of Shelbourne, Cabinteely, Treaty United and Cobh.
Their recent meetings have been very entertaining, producing 20 goals in the last five games with two wins for Athlone, one for Wexford and two draws in that time.
Forward Adam Wixted isn't getting carried away though:
Referee: Kevin O'Sullivan
Assistant 1: Ricky Crean
Assistant 2: Paul Norton
Fourth Official: Gavin Colfer
Meanwhile after a two week break, the midlanders women's team are back in action this weekend also.
They make the trip to the South-East to take on third placed Wexford Youths.
Tommy Hewitt's team will look to cause an upset in the WNL from 6:30 tomorrow evening.
