Struggling College at full strength

Relegation-threatened UCD are at full strength for tonight's visit of Cork City in the eircom League of Ireland Premier Division (kick-off 7.45pm).

City manager Alan Mathews is expecting another tough test from the Students.

He said: "No game in this league is easy. Every team is motivated and looking to get maximum points every week.

"We played them earlier in the season and they gave us a very difficult game, so we will approach the game with the right attitude but we know that it’s going to be a difficult task."

Midfielder George O’Callaghan is available once again following a one-match suspension, meaning that Mathews should have a full squad to choose from.

David Meyler picked up a knock to his ankle playing for the reserves at the weekend, while Darren Murphy also suffered a knock to the ankle in the game against Cobh, but both returned to full training on Wednesday and should be available for selection.
