Athlone expect Adrian Murphy and Robert Shine to return to action for the club tomorrow evening against Galway United.

Murphy is set to return from a head injury while Shine returns from suspension.

Padraig Moran and Niall Donnelly are both out through injury.

“It is going to be tough especially because it is a local derby with a lot of ex-Athlone players there," said manager Stephen Kelly.

"The pressure will be on them and it is up to us to go there and make ourselves as competitive as possible.”
