| 26.5°C Dublin

- Aidan Fitzmaurice

TEAM NEWS: Brian Lenihan is available for Cork ahead of his imminent move to England but Ross Gaynor is cup-tied. Bohs are without the suspended Roberto Lopes but Dinny Corcoran should be fit.

MATCH POINT: Season is over for Bohs if they lose here while City still have a major say in the title race, could be enough for Bohs to get a replay.

BETTING: Cork 7/10, Bohs 10/3, draw

FORECAST: Draw

Derry City v Malahide United (Brandywell, 7.45)

TEAM NEWS: Derry recall Rory Patterson from suspension but Ryan McBride and Barry Molloy are doubts. Malahide injury-free.

MATCH POINT: Derry's promising league form has evaporated after three games without a point or a goal, sparking City boss Peter Hutton to raise concerns about the players' attitude but they can bounce back here.

BETTING: Derry 1/12, Malahide 16/1, draw 13/2

FORECAST: Derry win

Dundalk v Galway (Oriel Park, 7.45)

TEAM NEWS: Galway are missing Martin Conneely, Aaron McDonagh (injured) and Paddy Barrett (cup-tied) but Enda Curran could return. Dundalk just missing Stephen O'Donnell.

MATCH POINT: The 39th competitive game of the season for Dundalk (Galway, in contrast, have played just 26) and another test for the league leaders. Galway come to Dundalk on the back of a win over Longford but home side can prevail.

BETTING: Dundalk 1/6, Galway 11/1, draw 19/4

FORECAST: Dundalk win

St Patrick's Athletic v Shelbourne (Richmond Park, 7.45)

TEAM NEWS: Greg Bolger is again banned for Pats. Darren Tinnelly the only absentee for Shels as Dylan Connolly, Willo McDonagh and Gareth Coughlan all return.

MATCH POINT: St Pat's showing signs of fatigue while Shels, boosted by recent arrivals like Gary Dempsey, Sean Russell and Alan O'Sullivan, are a threat. Replay likely.

BETTING: St Pat's 2/9, Shels 9/1, draw 4/1

FORECAST: Draw

Shamrock R v Longford Town (Tallaght Stadium, 8.0)

TEAM NEWS: Ryan and Luke Byrne are doubts for Rovers. Longford missing Willie Tyrrell and Etanda Nkololo.

MATCH POINT: Derby feel to this game with so many links, close tie in store but Rovers can shade it.

BETTING: Rovers 1/4, Longford 8/1, draw 4/1

FORECAST: Rovers win

Wexford Youths v Finn Harps (Ferrycarrig Park, 8.0)

TEAM NEWS: Wexford recall Ben Ryan, Jimmy Dermody and Sean Skelly are out. For Harps, Caoimhin Bonner is suspended but Packie Mailey and Damien McNulty return.

MATCH POINT: Wexford have a good home record, one home loss in the last six in the league, but Harps are excellent away (four clean sheets in the last five away games). Replay on the cards.

BETTING: Wexford 1/1, Harps 9/4, draw 9/4

FORECAST: Draw
