Keith Long's Bohs will host a Galway side who have already beaten them earlier this season but Hayes is hoping that home advantage will count in their favour.

"It's the only all-Premier one, unfortunately for us, but it's a very winnable game at home. There's not too much to fear. I think we are well capable of winning it," Hayes said.

"Thank God it was a home draw. think it could have been a lot worse. We are underperforming more than anything. I don't think there is too much concern. The performances can improve and will improve."

Holders Dundalk will welcome Shelbourne to Oriel Park and the Lilywhites will be looking for a repeat of their 5-0 victory at the same stage of the Cup last year.

Limerick side Janesboro will host Sheriff YC in one of two all non-league clashes with Glebe North travelling to Ringmahon Rangers in the other.
