Sligo Rovers will be looking to build on their recent good form as they take on Galway United at The Showgrounds tonight, kick-off 8pm.

Rovers boss Paul Cook must plan without keeper Richard Brush who has a broken wrist, while Romauld Boco is away on international duty.

Cook said: "It will be very difficult between now and the end of the season. Every game is a very hard game.

“There is no such thing as an easy game in a ten-team league. All of sudden you will find yourself playing Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers or up in the Brandywell; there is nothing easy. What you have to do is grasp as many points as you can.

"I think we have ability, we have good players, we pass the ball well. We are on a good run at the minute, we have lost one in 11. We have a balanced team, a settled team, and I feel our front players will get us goals."

Galway welcome back Shane Guthrie and Garry Breen from suspension, although Iarfhlaith Davoren is struggling with a knock and must face a late fitness test.

Seamus Conneely is absent as he is away on international duty with the Ireland Under-21 side.

Galway boss Ian Foster said: "Sligo are an excellent side. Cookie’s got all his big hitters back.

“I know Boco is missing but Seamus Conneely is missing for us as well, so that evens things up a little bit. It’ll be a good game, an interesting game. I imagine that they’ll be desperate to get all three points."
