Bohemians -v- Drogheda UnitedThu, May 10 2012
Bohemians will be hoping to bounce back from last Friday's defeat in Bray Wanderers when they take on Drogheda United in the Airtricity Premier League at Dalymount Park on Friday night.
Bohemians expect Ryan McEvoy to be fit after he missed the defeat to Bray with a groin injury. However club captain Owen Heary will miss the game with the hamstring injury which he picked up against the Seagulls. Winger Lee Dixon will also not play because of a toe injury. Neil Harney is a doubt because of the flu.
Bohemians manager Aaron Callaghan is not expecting an easy game.
"It’s going to be a difficult game but we have to concentrate on what we are doing, impose our game on them, and make sure we keep our concentration. If we keep playing the way we are playing I’ve no doubt we’ll get a result."
Drogheda do not have any injuries or suspensions ahead of tomorrow night's game. The Louth club lost 3-1 at home to league leaders Sligo Rovers last Friday night. That was just Drogheda's second defeat in the league so far this season.
Manager Mick Cooke has revealed that he will make some changes against Bohs and he is also determined to get back to winning ways.
"Bohemians are going through a tough time, similar to what we were going through last season, but they have done well in more recent weeks and I feel they will give us a tough game on their home turf. We had 21 players training on Tuesday and I will be making some changes from last week to keep everyone on their toes. The priority for us now is to get back on a winning streak."
Referee: Anthony Buttimer.
