Drogheda United will be looking to maintain their push to avoid relegation when they welcome Cork City to United Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Robbie Martin returns from injury to bolster Drogheda’s squad, while Eoghan Osborne (ankle), Paul Crowley (calf) and Shane Barrett (knee) are out injured.

Alan McNally is also ruled out as he is serving a suspension.

United boss Alan Mathews said: “We need to pick up where we left off at Galway. Of course it will be another tough clash. Cork have some exceptional players at their club and despite their off-field troubles they are still one of the top clubs in the country.”

City boss Paul Doolin has no injury or suspension concerns ahead of the game, with Timmy Kiely, who is suffering from flu, the only doubt.

Doolin said: “Drogheda have had some very good results in recent weeks, and they defeated us on our last visit to United Park.

“They have some good players and any team in this league is capable of beating any other team, so it will be a tough game for us.”
