Sligo Rovers have no injury concerns going into tonight's Airtricity Premier Division clash with Galway United in the Showgrounds, kick-off 7.45pm.

Conor O'Grady and Mark Donninger are pushing for spots in the starting 11 after substitute appearances last week in the 1-1 draw with Sporting Fingal.

Galway boss Sean Connor is back in the Showgrounds once again and a number of players have played for the two sides.

Galway’s Gareth Gorman, Jamie McKenzie, Derek O'Brien, Gary Curran and Ciaran Foley all return to their old stomping ground, while Sligo’s Alan Keane and Iarfhlaith Davoren also face their former team-mates again.

For Galway, new signing Anto Flood misses out through suspension, while Alan Murphy is still getting back to full fitness after having keyhole surgery on his knee.

United boss Sean Connor said: "We'll need a major step-up in performance to compete, but if we play like we did in the first 30 minutes against Bray we'll have a chance, but if we don't play like that we'll get a lashing.

"They have drawn away against Fingal and Shamrock Rovers so they have played some quality oppositions already. I'm sure Paul Cook would be delighted with two points against those two teams."
