However Paul Corry is available for the Students as is Gary Burke.

Bohs are looking to built on their first League win over Cork City last time out but boss Aaron Callaghan was on the coaching staff at Belfield in 2010 so will be well aware of the talent in Martin Russell’s squad.

Bohs are without suspended Dave Scully while Roberto Lopes and John O’Connor who are both suffering from a stomach bug.

“We go into the Bohs game looking to build on the performance in Derry last week and the boost to our confidence,” Russell said.

“We recognise Bohs will be buoyed by their recent win against Cork, we know they will have high expectations and they will be keen to climb up the league but we will do all we can to stop that.”

Bohs boss Aaron Callaghan meanwhile hailed his opponents as a fantastic club.

“It's a really good system they use and it’s something that I could certainly be looking at here,” he said.

“They’ve got the best facilities, the best gym, the best pitches, and they’ve always got a great level of fitness. I'm a bit envious of the facilities they’ve got, certainly on the training side of things.”
