Derek Tomney is the referee this evening.

There is 1,500 fans here this evening. That is the limit the government have set for next week's European game here but due to restrictions with it being a European game, the Hoops are only selling 1,350 tickets.

Saints Head Coach Stephen O'Donnell has four changes from his side who beat Bray Wanderers 6-0 in the cup last week. Matty Smith is suspended with Ian Bermingham, Ben McCormack and Jamie Lennon taking positions on the bench. Robbie Benson comes into the team and will skipper the Saints side. Chris Forrester, John Mountney and Darragh Burnes come into the starting lineup.

0'

Three changes for the Hoops as top scorer Graham Burke drops out of the squad with Sean Kavanagh and Sean Gannon on the bench from the 2-0 win over Galway United last week in the FAI Cup. Liam Scales up until last week had started every game of the season - he came off the bench against United - and he is back in the starting lineup this week as is Danny Mandroiu who missed the game last week.

Good evening from a slightly damp Tallaght Stadium this evening. The showers have passed through but expect to have some more with low lying cloud off to my left on the Dublin mountains. This is a top of the table clash between first and second.
