Match Preview: Dundalk away

Sligo Rovers take on Dundalk FC tomorrow (Friday) night at Casey’s Field at 7.45pm in The SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

The game is Rovers’ 33rd League game of the campaign and John Russell’s side currently sit in fifth spot in the Premier Division table.

The penultimate away game of the 2022 season will be a difficult one says Manager John Russell:

‘’Dundalk away is always a tough fixture. They have shown some good form at home this season so we know it’ll be a difficult game.

We come into the game after a good performance and win over UCD.

The players showed a real hunger and desire to win the game and we expect the same again on Friday night.

It’s important we finish the season strong’’.

In team news, Garry Buckley and Mark Byrne remain side-lined long term along with Luke McNicholas and David Cawley.

Max Mata missed Rovers’ last outing against UCD a fortnight ago but returns to the squad tomorrow night. Niall Morahan is a doubt with an ankle injury picked up in training this week.

Rovers also play on Monday night when we welcome Derry City to The Showgrounds in a game which was postponed from last weekend due to The Candystripe’s involvement in the FAI Cup Semi-Final.
