Rusk joins UCD injury list as they entertain Galway

UCD entertain Galway United at the UCD Bowl in tonight’s Airtricity League Premier Division clash, kick-off 7.45pm.

Striker Graham Rusk is ruled out with a shin injury and he joins Brian Shortall, Sean Harding and David McMillan on the UCD injury list.

Greg Bolger is also ruled out as he must serve a suspension, while David O’Connor and Stephen Doyle have been added to the squad.

United welcome back striker Karl Sheppard after suspension for the away trip to Dublin.

Ciaran Foley missed last Sunday's game through injury but may be added to the squad.

Galway boss Sean Connor was disappointed not to take all three points against Dundalk last weekend and knows his side need to win their home games.

He said: "We really needed a win to give everybody a lift and to close the gap on the teams ahead of us. At this stage of the season draws at home are no good. Away from home you can take them as a positive and build them up, but at home we have to pick up maximum points as often as we can.

“Every night should be about getting results because it is a results business. The good teams eke out results. We had enough possession and opportunities to make sure Dundalk wouldn't take anything from the game, but they did.”
