Cork City can seal the First Division title later.
They know a win over second-placed Galway United will secure promotion back to the top tier.
In their most recent league outings, United scored in the last minute to pick up a point against Cobh Ramblers at St Colman’s Park, while City defeated third-place Waterford away from home to edge closer to the league title.
Ahead of Friday’s fixture, manager John Caulfield said:
“We are looking forward to the game.
“Cork have been very good all season, but we have been good also.
“We are hoping for a big home support on Friday night.”
