Sligo Rovers entertain champions Drogheda United at the Showgrounds on tonight and both sides are looking to kick-start their league campaign, kick-off 8.00pm.

For Rovers, Danny Ventre, Seamus Coleman and Gavin Peers all return from suspension, although Gavin Peers may be a doubt with a hamstring injury he picked up in training this week.

Steve Feeney is still out with a groin strain picked up in training last week, while former Sligo captain Adam Hughes may line out for his new club.

Shane Barrett still has hamstring strain and misses out for United.

Jason Gavin has a medial ligament strain and is out of contention as is Shaun Maher with an Achilles tendon problem.

Captain Declan ‘Fabio’ O’Brien is approaching full fitness and should be available next week.

Neither side has any suspension worries ahead of this fixture.
