UEFA Cup-bound Bohemians have an excellent chance to sign off on domestic action with a fifth win in a row when out-of-form Waterford United visit Dalymount Park tonight (7.45pm).

Bohs, who travel to Estonia next week to take on Levadia Tallinn, have risen to second place behind eircom League leaders Shelbourne with back-to-back wins and reached the League Cup final since blowing a 2-0 lead and going down 4-2 at home to Dublin City last month.

Stephen Kenny’s side will be further boosted by the return of a number of players rested for Tuesday’s 4-1 League Cup semi-final win over Limerick while Ken Oman also looks set to rejoin the action after he overcame a hamstring injury.

Osam’s fellow defenders Paul McNally and Damian Lynch both came through Tuesday's victory after thet returned to the side while striker Tony Grant is Bohs' only doubt with a hamstring strain and faces a late fitness test.

Waterford United, meanwhile, are in a slump right now after four straight defeats and will be without suspended skipper John Frost and injured duo Wayne Fitzgerald and Daryl Murphy.
