Rossiter back as Bohs host Dundalk

Bohemians will be looking to stay in touch at the top of the table when they take on Dundalk at Dalymount Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Mark Rossiter returns to the Bohemians squad after recovering from a hamstring injury but Keith Buckley remains out through suspension.

Ollie Cahill should be fit to be included in the squad after a spell out with a hamstring injury, although Christy Fagan (hamstring), Glenn Cronin (knee) and Barry Murphy (groin) remain sidelined.

Gypsies boss Pat Fenlon said: “Dundalk are a good side and had another good performance on Friday. I don’t think there’s any game where we can relax and expect to pick up a point. We expect a tough game.”

Dundalk are without a victory at Dalymount in any competition since March 1993.

And The Lilywhites remain without Eoghan Osborne (fractured tibia) and Stephen Maher (groin) but Dean Bennett (hamstring) and Greg Bolger (thigh) are close to recalls.

Stephen McDonnell (knee) is doubtful, while Mark Quigley (foot) should be fit. Shane Guthrie (blurred vision & concussion) and Colin Hawkins (hamstring) are both expected to feature.

Dundalk manager Ian Foster said: “We have to beat Bohemians to go above them, but I think it’s important that we come away from there with a clean-sheet if we can, or unbeaten if we can, because it will be a long time before we play again in the league.”
