    Turners Cross hosts the meeting of the top 2 sides in the top flight this evening.

    Cork City and Dundalk go into tonights game deadlocked at the summit of the table on 28 points.

    Last month, the Lilywhites claimed 3 points against the leesiders in their first league clash of the season.

    Kick off is at 715.

    Meanwhile, Third-placed Waterford play host to Sligo Rovers.

    There's a Dublin derby between St. Patrick's Athletic and Bohemians at Richmond Park.

    Derry welcome Shamrock ROvers to the Brandywell.

     Bottom side Bray Wanderers take on Limerick.

    Each of those games gets underway at 745.

  • Sligo rovers travel to Waterford in the SSE Airtricity premier division tomorrow night in a rescheduled fixture.

     

    Kickoff is at 7:45 this evening.

     

    The game has been brought forward because of Waterford’s involvement in the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Cup on Friday.

     

    In team news, Daryl Fordyce, Kyle Callan-McFadden and Ronan Murray serve suspensions.

     

    Murray is serving the second of a three-match ban. Dante Leverock is on international duty with Bermuda as they prepare to face Mexico.

     

    Romeo Parkes is out for the rest of the season through a medial ligament injury and Ronan Coughlan is doubtful as he undergoes a late fitness test.

     

    Fordyce, used as a midfielder throughout the season, served as a striker last Saturday against Shamrock Rovers so it means another re-jig for Liam Buckley’s side if Coughlan does not make it but he could yet feature.

  • Sligo Rovers are the latest League of Ireland club to come under financial pressure.

    They have been left without a home fixture for 11 weeks following the postponement of Sunday's S-S-E Airtricity League Premier Division clash with table toppers Dundalk.

    The tie is being rearranged due to the Lilywhites' progress to the second qualifying round of the Europa League.

    The Showgrounds won't host another League match until September and Sligo describe the lack of gate receipts as a clear financial strain.

  • Sligo Rovers will participate in the 2018/19 IRN-BRU Scottish Challenge Cup, along with Bohemians, as representatives of the SSE Airtricity League.

    St Patrick's Athletic opted not to take up a place in the competition, so the offer was extended to Sligo Rovers who will join Bohemians in the draw for the next staging of the tournament.
