Athlone will be without the suspended Alan Kelly and the injured Padraig Moran for their visit to promotion-chasing Bray Wanderers tomorrow night.
The match at the Carlisle Grounds kicks off at 7:45pm.
"It will be a tough game against Bray," admits Athlone manager Stephen Kelly. "They are a very experienced side who have everything to play for. Promotion is a must for them. We must continue to strive for consistency and that will bring its reward.
"Three games unbeaten means very little and we must play with confidence and total concentration because if you switch off against Bray you will be punished.”
