0' - No David Cassidy, Kevin Dawson or Stephen Paisley for Shels tonight- Paisley and Cassidy are on the bench. Patrick McEleney starts for Derry.
Shelbourne 0 - 0 Derry City
0' - Derry City are the favourites tonight as they look to make it three from three. We're waiting to see if Patrick McEleney will pass a fitness test, and Kevin Deery hasn't recovered in time. Paul Byrne is the only doubt for Shels, with David Cassidy, Stephen Paisley and Kevin Dawson all ow available for selection. Derry are a bit of a bogey team for Shels- the last time the Reds beat them was in June 2006, with a lone Jason Byrne goal giving Shels the win. That was the only one of the last ten competitive meetings between the sides that Shels won. Will Alan Mathews' men upset the form book tonight? It's Niall Farrell back in Tolka Park tonight, to help you find out.
