Cork City’s win over Athlone Town last weekend was the first time they won away from home since August 2019.

Shelbourne remain eight points clear at the top of the First Division table and have the best defensive record in the league having only conceded 10 goals thus far.

Cork City have only defeated Shelbourne once since 2013 – and are winless in their last three against the Reds. Their last win over Shels at Tolka Park came in 2012 when they won 2-1.

Their previous win before that was the 2-1 success that sealed the First Division title thanks to a late Graham Cummins winner.

Good evening folks and welcome to Tolka Park as Shelbourne host Cork City in the League of Ireland First Division. 

I'm Andrew Dempsey and I will be taking you all through tonight's action as the Reds look to continue their imperious run to the title. 

KO at 7.45pm...
