Kevin Sheedy names an unchanged team. The only change to the squad is Shane Griffin has been named as a sub. Tunmise Sobowale has the armband for the Blues.

Three changes for Rovers from their win in Finn Harps. Sean Gannon, Aaron Greene and Max Murphy come into the starting XI with Ronan Finn, Graham Burke and Joey O'Brien drop to the bench. Lee Grace will captain Rovers this afternoon. Neil Farrugia is named in the match day squad for the first time this season.

0'

That isn't an error but Kevin Sheedy has only named four subs. He says he wants more protection for his young players.
