Shamrock Rovers will be looking to build on their impressive Champions League display against Ekranas in midweek and end a run of three successive draws in all competitions as they host Bray Wanderers tonight (kick off: 7.05pm).

Wanderers are looking for their first win in five games but were unfortunate to lose with 10 men in a decent performance against Shelbourne last week.

The Hoops are without Aaron Greene (knee) while Craig Sives is a doubt.

Gary Twigg is suspended. Bray are minus suspended Kieran Marty Waters while Danny O'Connor and Adam Mitchell return from their bans.

Dave Webster (knee) and Sean Houston (thigh) are back in contention.

Hoops boss Stephen Kenny said: “Overall it was a good performance on Tuesday and I’ll be looking for us to build on that in this game against Bray.

“Bray are a good side and have been causing problems for a lot of teams this year, but our home form has been good. And I think if we perform well we can get a win, which is very important for us at the moment.”

Bray Director of Football Pat Devlin is looking forward to the tie.

“We are back to full strength now,” he said.

“Games between ourselves and Rovers have been great games and I expect Friday night to be no different.”
