Longford v Bohemians
(Flancare Park, 7.30)
LONGFORD made life difficult for Shamrock Rovers in last year's competition and Bohs won't be expecting anything different. The Cup is Pat Fenlon's main hope of Euro qualification and silverware and they'll be keen to progress.
Verdict: Away win.
Sligo v Monaghan Utd
(The Showgrounds, 7.45)
A REMATCH of last year's EA Sports Cup final sees Monaghan out for revenge against the FAI Cup holders.
The Bit O'Red will be licking their wounds after their EA Sports Cup exit to Derry on Tuesday but should have more than enough to book their place in the quarter-finals.
Verdict: Home win.
