Cork City will be looking to stay in touch at the top of the table when they take on Galway United at Turner's Cross tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.
For City, Fahrudin Kuduzovic is ruled out through suspension, but boss Paul Doolin has no injury concerns, giving him a full squad to choose from apart from the Bosnian forward.
Doolin said: “The fact that both Bohs and Derry suffered defeats on Tuesday gives us an opportunity to close the gap on them, and that is something we will be aiming to take advantage of.
“The important thing for us is to concentrate on claiming the three points ourselves against Galway and continuing our good run.
“I have no doubt that Galway will be tough opponents for us again.
“I watched their game against Shamrock Rovers last week, and despite being defeated I thought they played extremely well; they had some good passages of play and had chances to take the lead.
“We had a great win at Terryland a couple of months ago and I will be looking for more of the same on Friday.”
For Galway, Shane Guthrie returns from suspension, however, Iarfhlaith Davoren is likely to miss out through injury.
