Team news for Limerick game

The new SSE Airtricity Premier Division season is underway on Saturday as Sligo Rovers welcome Limerick to The Showgrounds for the 3,000th game in the club's history. 
 
Eduardo Pincelli, Adam Morgan, Caolan McAleer, Adam Wixted, David Cawley, Ally Roy and Lewis Morrison are the new signings for Rovers with anticipation growing ahead of the big-kick-off.
 
Rovers have a fully fit squad to choose from. 
 
Manager Gerard Lyttle said: "We're looking forward to it. All the hard work we have put in during pre-season - that's over with - and the hard work of the season starts now. 
 
"The boys have been great in terms of their attitude and work ethic. Hopefully now we will be rewarded with a good campaign in league."
 
Lyttle said of opponents Limerick: "It was a hard one for me to do preparation on. The manager left and a new manager came in and he signed a bit later than other clubs.  
 
"People think Limerick are going to be an easy one and they are being tipped to be one of the teams to get relegated this year. I don't believe that. I believe they have a really good XI. 
 
"They have a bit of experience in their team. We are expecting a tough game. We played them last year away and got a 5-1 drilling. We are wary of that. 
 
"We know some of the players like Daniel Kearns. They have a lot of experience in defence and midfield and one or two up front so it's going to be tough. We'll approach it that way. But at the end of the day it's up to us. 
 
"This is our first game here and we will be fully committed, at it, getting the crowd on our side and once that crowd get behind you, it sends great positive vibes throughout the team. We're excited to start the season."
 
Kick-off is 7:45pm Saturday. Tickets are available at turnstiles or here
