Team news for Limerick game

Sligo Rovers take on Limerick this Saturday in the final match of this weekend's series of Airtricity Premier Division games.

The Bit o' Red will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce in The Showgrounds for the first time since May.
 
The clean sheet took against Cork City brought goalkeeper Gary Rogers to 19 for the season, equalling his career record and one more would break the record.
 
David Cawley can make the 50th league appearance of his career.
 
The Ballina man has scored seven goals in those games since making his debut against UCD in the Showgrounds in March 2012.
 
In team news, striker David McMillan returned to training this week after recovering from an infection.
 
Ross Gaynor, Iarfhlaith Davoren and Evan McMillan remain out
 

 
Rovers boss Ian Baraclough said: “Stuart has done a very impressive job in his first season in the league. He has put together a youthful squad who play nice, attacking football and they will be stronger next season having been blooded in as such this year.
 
“Our games against them so far have been open affairs with both teams looking to attack and I expect Saturday's clash to be no different.
 
“With David McMillan coming back it gives us a boost. We’ve got real firepower at our disposal when he is added to Danny North, Raffaele Cretaro, Kieran Djilali, Anthony Elding and other players we have used in the attacking roles. We are a bit on edge in defensive numbers but the trio out are making progress towards a return.
 
“In the final nine games, there are 27 points to play for and we have to make sure that we put a run of wins together that gives us a chance to come out on top. I’m sure the other teams around us will drop points at some stage, but we can’t worry about that. It will not make a difference if we don’t put points on the board.
 
“This is a time in the season where every team will be desperate for points.  It is simple to say we can win this game or the next game, but it will take all our efforts to try to make it happen. We have to be defensively sound and patient in the quest for goals. But with progress in the cup, it has brought a lift for the players and we know we are still fighting to win this league again.”
