Drogheda United travel to the the Showgrounds to take on Sligo Rovers in tonight's Airtricity League Premier Division clash (kick-off 7.45pm).

United boss Alan Mathews must plan without defender Corrie Treacy, while Eoghan Osborne and Robbie Martin return to the squad.

Joe Kendrick is the only doubt for Mathews ahead of the game.

Sligo have no new injury worries ahead of the game and new signing John Russell, who played 25 minutes in the 6-0 win over Letterkenny Rovers in the EA Sports Cup, is likely to be restricted to a substitute role again on Saturday.

Mauro Almeida remains out for several months with an Achilles injury.

Matthew Blinkhorn (hat-trick) and Padraig Amond (two goals) scored five goals between them last Tuesday against Letterkenny so Paul Cook has plenty of options up front with Joesph N'do also available.
