Longford v Sligo Rovers

Longford v Sligo Rovers

City Calling Stadium (7.30pm)

League form: Longford Town DWLDL, Sligo Rovers WDDWL

Match odds: Longford Town 12/5, Sligo Rovers 21/20, Draw 5/2

Referee: S Grant (Wexford)

Team news: Sander Puri, Sligo's Estonian international, is unavailable. John Russell has not trained this week due to his hip flexor injury. However, Jason Hughes returns from injury. Alan Keane has a knee problem and may miss out, while Stephen Rice, the Longford midfielder, is definitely out with a suspension.

Talking point: Longford's recent form - one league win in 11 - has been awful, hence the fact they are still in the relegation mix, when a top-six finish seemed likelier earlier this year.

Verdict: Away win
