Cork City and Bohemians go head to head in the eircom League of Ireland Premier Division clash tonight at Turner's Cross, kick-off 7.45pm.

For Cork, Darragh Ryan (pelvic injury), John O’Flynn (groin) and Brian O’Callaghan (hamstring) will definitely sit out the tie, while Leon McSweeney is suspended.

This leaves manager Richardson with just one of his regular strikers fit in Denis Behan, meaning that Colm Carroll may be drafted in for his first league start.

Winger Liam Kearney is also struggling with a calf injury.

Bohs skipper Kevin Hunt will miss this game through suspension, so Stephen O'Donnell, who missed the Cup semi-final, is likely to assume a role in central midfield.

Striker Darren Mansaram is a doubt having twisted his knee against Longford last week and he will undergo a fitness test prior to the game.

Striker Michael McGinlay is on standby, while Chris Turner, who has deputised up front before, is also an option alongside Glen Crowe.

Mark Rossiter and John Paul Kelly are back in the frame, although 'Joxer' is still a slight concern.

Bohs possess a better goal difference so a draw will be enough to see the Gypsies snatch third place.

Legendary Cork rock group the Frank and Waters will be performing live at half-time at the Cross.
