Callaghan confident Bohs will get result against Drogheda

Drogheda United will travel to Bohemians looking to get back to winning ways after their impressive unbeaten run came to an end against Sligo last weekend.

Meanwhile Bohs too need a win after a disappointing defeat by Bray last time out and they hope to have Ryan McEvoy (groin) fit for the game.

However, their captain Owen Heary will be out with a hamstring injury picked up against Bray and winger Lee Dixon is out with a toe injury.

Neil Harney remains a doubt through flu. Drogheda are at full strength.

Bohemians boss Aaron Callaghan said: "Drogheda are playing with confidence, though they had a defeat last weekend.

"It’s going to be a difficult game but we have to concentrate on what we are doing, impose our game on them, and make sure we keep our concentration. If we keep playing the way we are playing I’ve no doubt we’ll get a result."

Drogheda United manager Mick Cooke has a full squad to pick from.

Cooke said: "We came up against the best team in the league last week and it was clear from the game why they are the best team. Having said that, we were without three of our best players and that certainly affected us.

"This week we face Bohemians who are going through a tough time, similar to what we were going through last season, but they have done well in more recent weeks and I feel they will give us a tough game on their home turf."
