The hosts are in full strength, the last won over Dundalk 1: 2 in good shape. Today they will play with Bohemians where Coote, Burt, Wilson, Flores, Ogedi, Talbot, Mullins will not play on the side of their side. They lost the previous game to Drogheda in a bad style, they also lost for Flores due to red card.
The hosts are during long winning path, with the full squad will fight against weakness Finn Harps in this game. The visitors in bad mood , the last game they won against Sligo 3-2, but they lost a few important players, red card for Connolly. They cannot count Today on David Webster, Ryan Connolly, Ryan Rainey, Ollie Horgan in this match. The performance of several players is questionable: Filip Mihaljevic, Regon Donelon, Ethan Boyle, Rob Jones
The hosts will have a tough job, the last 3 losts in row, may not be changed. There are no signs of improvement in the team, the line-up is still without “game changers”. On the other hand, the guests have introduced into team strong newcomers and Today we will see valuable players: Josh Kerr, Ryan Burke, John O’Sullivan and Declan McDaid. They should make a difference for Bohemians side.
Cork City are doing all what they can to come back to 1st league. Thy are 1st team into table and highflying on the long winning path. Additionally Today they will be boosted by the returns of recent injury worries, who had missed out on the last few games due to injury. Gordon Walker is back training, while Alex Byrne will be back running on grass shortly. In such a shape home team will have huge problems to take even point from this game.
Table leader – Rovers are playing really well, from 2 last games won in a good shape and full strength. Home team from the other hand is suffering by missing 3 important players. Injured: David Webster; doubtful: Ryan Connolly; Suspended: Ethan. Placed on 2nd position from the bottom are playing poor and they are not in the same level as guests to win this match.
Both teams are placed in the middle of the table. The hosts, after an unexpected draw with Drogheda, where they conceded a goal in the 84 minute, will want to return to the winning path today. Hosts cannot count on mail player Wilson; the guest squad will play without McSweeney, Boyd. The previous game the guests lost to Shamrock 2: 0 in terrible style, with such a game they have nothing to look for today.
Waterford started the league competition with a 5-2 win over Athlone. Their opponents today in a different mood, a major 6-0 defeat to Bray shows their present form. The coach changes the squad looking for the optimum, he replaced the goalkeeper and defenders: McGuinness, Callan, Massey. This is not a good sign for the second game after the restart of games.
A difficult task today is facing the host team to at least draw with the strong leader of the Irish league – Shamrock. The guests from 4 games have not lost and are currently in great shape. The hosts, are currently hurt with staffing problems, 2 players will not play: Prince Mutswungum, Darragh Power, 5 with health problems are monitored and may also not appear: Ronaldo Green, Junior Quitirna, Matthew Connor, Eddie Nolan, Greg Halford.
Longford lost 2 players by red cards after the last victory against Dundalk. Two more have joined the long list of injured players, which means that the team cannot count on 6 main players: Manley, Kirk, Dobbs, Chambers, Stecey, Robbins. City, located on 3rd place and fighting for the cup positions, cannot miss such an opportunity.
Bohemians have a chance to jump in the scoreboard today. They will host weakened guests without any problems. From the opponent side 3 basic defensive players will miss the squad due to cards: Joe Thomson, Danny Lafferty, Cameron McJannet. The trainer mentioned valuable young substitutes, but their quality is incomparable.
