    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.
