Team news for Waterford game

Sligo Rovers take on Waterford on Friday night at the RSC in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

After three good performances Rovers make the long trip south for the first time since an FAI Cup clash in 2013.

In team news, Adam Morgan, Seamus Sharkey and Rhys McCabe are doubtful because of injury. Michael Schlingermann (injury) and David Cawley (suspended) are definitely out. Captain Kyle Callan-McFadden returns from injury.

Gerard Lyttle said: "I feel we are getting a small bit of momentum in terms of our performances. After the Derry game we had a clear the air talk and since then there's been a greater intensity in many aspects.

"The back line was solid against St Pat's and we created chances. Every player put in a good performance and all that evaded us was the goal. It was obviously pleasing for the likes of John Mahon and Jack Keaney. There was a good balance in that it was such a young team, but you also had Eduardo and Raff that gave them a hand and brought a lot to the side. There were a lot of positives.

"I don't think the table lies. Waterford are there are merit. In the last game it was tight, we had more possession and conceded with almost the last kick of the game. We're going down there confident because on our day we can beat any team in the league.

"It's disappointing to be without David Cawley and the manner that came - he has been so consistent - but we have to cope with that. There are a few questions over some players with injury. It's hard with the run of games because you will pick up knocks along the way. There were players that stood up last week to say they want the shirt and that's very encouraging. We're looking forward to the game."
