Preview: Rovers set for Tallaght visit

Sligo Rovers visit Shamrock Rovers on Friday night in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

The Bit O’ Red go into the game on the back of two wins – against Finn Harps and UCD – and a first clean sheet of the season in that game against the Students.

In team news, Regan Donelon, Kyle Callan-McFadden and Dante Leverock have returned to training throughout this week.

Ed McGinty is out with a finger problem.

Liam Buckley said: “It is good to get some of the injured lads back in training at least. We’ll have to make a call on whether they are ready to start. It’s not straight-forward in one or two cases.

“We’d like to improve on these two wins and get our performances better, which is happening in moments and has helped us get those victories. 

“It’ll take time to get it to where we’d like over the course of a game. That’s what we’re working towards.

“The opposition are the team top of the table with aspirations to stay there all year so it’s a challenge. 

“I’ve had some wins in Tallaght previously and it’s a great place to pick up a result if you can do so. 

“It’s certainly what we’re targeting and something we are looking forward to trying to do. We’ll give it a good go.”
