Team news: Drogheda vs Rovers

 

Sligo Rovers go to Drogheda tomorrow for a key game at the bottom of the SSE Airtricy League table in United Park.

The game kicks-off at 7:45. Drogheda United lost 1-0 to Bray Wanderers last week while the Bit o’Red were beaten 2-0 at The Showgrounds by Cork City.

So far this year there has been one win each in the games between the clubs, Drogheda won 3-2 at home while Rovers won 2-0 in The Showgrounds.

New signing Anthony Elding as well as fit again John Russell and Danny Ledwith all trained this week though they may be short of match fitness.

Ruairi Keating, Kevin Devaney and Liam Flatley are all doubts for the game.

David Calwey is back from his suspension along with Rob Lehane who although he had a slight knock earlier in the week is eligible to play.

Jeff Henderson remains an injury absentee.
