Parkhouse out for Sligo

Sligo Rovers will have to plan for Saturday night’s visit of Dundalk to the Showgrounds without Stephen Parkhouse, kick-off 8.00pm.

The striker picked up an ankle injury in the 0-0 draw with Galway United last Friday and is not fit to play this weekend.

Danny Ventre is also ruled out as he is suspended for getting sent off against Galway last week.

Romuald Boco and Raffael Cretaro both return but Chris Butler and Mauro Almeida still remain sidelined.

Dundalk will be hoping to bounce back from last week’s defeat to St Patrick’s Athletic as they look to record their second win of the season.

Simon Kelly is in line to start for Sean Connor’s side as he played most of the second half last week.
