Cobh Ramblers entertain county rivals Cork City in tonight's eircom League of Ireland Premier Division derby at St Colman's Park, kick-off 7.45pm.

A massive crowd is expected with the visitors bringing close to 2,000 fans on the trip to the harbour town.

Cobh have a full squad to choose from for tonight's game and Stephen Henderson's side are looking for their first win of the season.

For City, Liam Kearney has recovered from a wrist injury, so Billy Woods (ankle) is the only absentee through injury.

Ramblers had a hugely impressive season in 2007, and Cork boss Alan Mathews knows the First Division champions will be a stern test for his side.

He said: “Cobh had a fantastic season last year. Stephen Henderson has done a great job down there in winning promotion last season, and they have some fine players, so it promises to be a game to look forward to.”
