Bray Wanderers will go into their clash with Drogheda full of confidence after securing their first win of the season last week against UCD.
Drogheda have had a solid start to the new campaign but manager Mick Cooke was not impressed by their exit on penalties to Firhouse Clover in the Leinster Senior Cup on Monday.
Long-term injury victims Shane O'Connor (groin) and Stephen Brennan (hamstring) remain out for Bray while Pierce Sweeney returns after suspension.
Bray Wanderers Director of Football Pat Devlin said: "I'm looking forward to it I know it will be tough as it always is against Drogheda,but I'm looking forward to the challenge."
Drogheda pair Eric Foley and Paul Crowley are suspended while Declan O'Brien is a slight doubt after taking a knock in the Leinster Senior Cup on Monday.
Drogs manager Mick Cooke said: "Bray are a well organised side and they had a good win last weekend, so that will give them a lot of confidence.
"We had some wins there last season and I always enjoy going to the Carlisle Grounds. It won't be easy, but hopefully Monday was the kick that we needed."
