McGill likely to be Rovers' only absentee

Shamrock Rovers will be looking to get back to winning ways as they take on UCD at Tolka Park tonight, kick-off 8pm.

For Rovers, several players are being treated following Tuesday's 2-2 draw against Bray Wanderers, but all bar Eric McGill (foot) are expected to be available for the game.

Hoops boss Pat Scully said: "Joseph Ndo is still recovering from a thigh strain, while there are slight doubts about Pat Flynn, Sean O'Connor and Ger O'Brien who should all make it.

Shane McFaul is a doubt for UCD as he is struggling with a chest injury but otherwise boss Pete Mahon has a full squad to choose from.
