This is the only game in the Premier Division as elsewhere u21 call ups have seen the games postponed. Both clubs do have players away on international duty. Dundalk have Raivis Jurkovskis (Latvia) and Sonni Nattestad (Faroe Islands) overseas and Rovers' Pico Lopes played yesterday's in Cape Verde's 2-1 win over Liberia.
