Longford Town entertain Premier Division side Bohemians in tonight’s FAI Ford Cup fourth round clash at Flancare Park (kick-off 7.30pm).

Stephen Traynor is missing for Bohs as he is struggling with an ankle injury.

Keith Buckley is still recovering from a broken nose and is a doubt ahead of the trip to the midlands.

Glenn Cronin is another player recovering from an injury after playing most of Monday’s draw with St Patrick’s Athletic with a bandaged head but the influential midfielder should be fit to start.

Owen Heary returns to Pat Fenlon’s squad after serving a suspension.

Bohs played Longford in the FAI Cup Final of 2001 when Tony O’Connor’s goal decided a rain-soaked game at Tolka Park in favour of the Gypsies.

Bohemians travel to Flancare Park on the back of two defeats in three league games but have produced several impressive performances recently.

Longford beat Wexford Youths 3-1 in their last league game, while they progressed to the fourth round after beating Finn Harps after a replay.
