GAME ON!

The game between Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers has kicked off.

0'

Rob Hennessy is in charge of the game this evening helped by assistants Michelle O'Neill and Wayne McDonnell.

0'

Sligo Rovers have two players missing due to suspension with Niall Morahan out having picked up five yellow cards. I think Greg Bolger is the first to make it to 12 yellow cards and that means he misses two games (not for being first to that honour, only that is the result when you get a dozen yellows).

0'

Coach Liam Buckley has made five changes to the Bit O' Red starting line up. Walter Figueira, Seamus Keogh and Melvyn Lorensen were all on the bench in last week's 1-1 draw away to Waterford last week but they start - as does skipper David Cawley and John Mahon.

0'

I spoke with Stephen Bradley ahead of kick-off. I asked him did the fact that his team play three games in nine days factor into his selection but he siad no, focus was all on tonight. The Hoops play Bohs on Monday here in Tallaght and are away to Longford next Saturday. One change for the home team tonight as Pico Lopes has returned from international duty with Cape Verde. Sean Hoare drops onto the bench from the 1-0 loss to Dundalk in Oriel Park last week.
