Sligo Rovers play their last home game of the season as they welcome Cork City to the Showgrounds in Saturday's eircom League of Ireland Premier Division clash, kick-off 7.45pm.

Rovers go into the game in the unusual position of having a full squad to choose from with no injury or suspension concerns.

The Rebel Army will be looking to set the record straight having been defeated twice by the Bit O’ Red earlier in the season, City’s previous visit to Sligo ending in a 4-1 defeat at the Showgrounds in May.

Darragh Ryan (pelvic injury) and Billy Woods will definitely sit out the tie, while Brian O’Callaghan will not be fit in time for Saturday's clash.

Cillian Lordan (ankle) is also ruled out, while Joe Gamble is suspended for the game.

John O’Flynn (dead leg) is expected to be fit and captain Dan Murray is available again having missed the draw against Bray Wanderers through suspension.
