Cobh Ramblers will be looking to build on Monday's victory over Galway United when they take on champions Drogheda United at St Colman's Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Boss Stephen Henderson has a very strong squad ahead of their last league game before the mid-season break.

James McCarthy returns to the Ramblers squad after he missed the Terryland clash on Monday.

For Drogheda, midfielder Shane Robinson picked up an injury in Tuesday's match with Sligo Rovers and may be out for a month.

The midfielder joins a long list of absentees including goalkeeper Dan Connor, who should return to training next week.

Also unavailable are strikers Tony Grant and captain Declan O'Brien, who broke his arm earlier this week.

Richie Baker remains on the sidelines, while Aidan O'Keeffe will hope to prove his fitness before the game.
