Team news for Limerick game

Sligo Rovers travel to Thomond Park on Friday night for the final away match in the first series of this season's SSE Airtricity Premier Division.
 
The Bit o' Red have moved into the top half of the table after their first win on the road in the league last Monday against Bohemians.
 
Ian Baraclough will have the same squad available as last Monday and Seamus Conneely has now trained sufficiently to become part of the group available to the Rovers boss.
 
Raffaele Cretaro (calf) and Gavin Peers (knee) are the only absentees.
 
Baraclough said of the good form within the squad such as the impact of players coming off the bench in Dalymount last Monday: "It's the best scenario for me. It will give me headaches in choosing players for the team and indeed the squad but it’s what you’re looking for as a manager. The performances and results are showing why for the last four games, we've had the same team or largely the same team, with just a change or two. There may be a time when we need to freshen things up but for now the consistency is there in the team selection."
 
"We've conceded nine goals so far this season in all competitions. We were getting punished by teams taking the odd chance at the start of the season and that was frustrating. It makes it harder when you concede and we are starting to keep clean sheets and score goals too. We need to keep it going but as last Monday showed we know how to win in different ways.
 
"I think Stuart has targeted being tighter at the back and results have started to come.  We are not travelling there expecting to score five, six or seven goals. We have to break Limerick down, we have to be at our best and find that way to win once again."
