Sligo Rovers will be looking to maintain their recent run of good form when they take on Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Romauld Boco could make his first appearance for Sligo since re-joining the club, while defender Gavin Peers will sit out the match due to suspension.

Derek Foran replaced Peers for the victory over Dundalk last weekend but manager Paul Cook will now have the added option of Benin international Boco.

John Gibson is also likely to start in goal once again with Richard Brush set to miss the rest of the season because of a hand injury.

Mauro Almeida is another long-term absentee with an Achilles injury.

New signing Gary Dempsey is included in the Bray squad for the visit of Sligo.

However, manager Eddie Gormley's other new signing, Graham Kelly, will miss out with a hamstring injury.

Also missing are Richie Baker (back) and David Tyrrell (ankle), while Adam Mitchell is doubtful.

Gormley said: “We will have four or five back for the Sligo game and hopefully we will have Gary Dempsey available.

“I'll be looking for a massive improvement in performance and attitude (after Monday’s defeat to Shelbourne) and I have no doubt that will happen.”
