Champions Drogheda United entertain Pat Fenlon's Bohemians in the televised game on Sunday night at United Park, kick-off 7.00pm.

United have almost a full squad to choose from after captain Declan O'Brien returned to the squad in midweek, while Shane Barrett continued his rehabilitation with a run-out in the last few minutes against Dungannon Swifts on Monday.

Jason Gavin is fit to play, after he was taken off during the Setanta Sports Cup tie.

Gavin said: "I came off after picking up a knock, but it was just precaution really.

"I could have played on but it was better to not take the risk."

Graham Gartland (Achilles) and Richie Baker (calf) are both expected to recover from knocks to play.

Mikko Vilmunen has returned after flu but boss Paul Doolin will stick with new keeper Jamie Ewings after he impressed in the two games he has played.

Killian Brennan will return to the Bohs starting line-up after serving his suspension.

And Ken Oman is also likely to return although captain Kevin Hunt remains out with a broken foot.
