Drogheda travel to UCD in bottom-of-the-table clash

UCD will be looking for some league form when they take on Drogheda United at the UCD Bowl tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Andy Boyle is out for UCD against fellow strugglers Drogheda United, the central defender is struggling with a knee injury.

Boyle joins long-term absentees David McMillan and Sean Harding on the injury list, while Brian Shortall and Chris Mulhall are both suspended.

For Drogheda, Brendan McGill is joined by Jamie Harris on the treatment table, while Corrie Treacy is suspended for the trip to Belfield.

Drogheda United assistant manager Darius Kierans said: “UCD have beaten us four times this season, but we did win the most recent clash so that’s something positive to take.

“At the moment morale is high in the dressing room, we have been putting in some good performances but just not getting the results and it’s now that we need to get them, we are coming to the business end of the season and there is still a lot to play for.

“UCD are on a bad run at the moment so something has got to give and hopefully it will go in our favour.”
