Rovers Travel To Champions Cork

Sligo Rovers take on Cork City on Tuesday in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division at Turner's Cross.

The Bit O'Red secured their third win of the season on Saturday by beating Limerick 2-1.

In team news, Gerard Lyttle will have the same squad available as Saturday's match with Lewis Morrison and Michael Schlingermann unavailable.

Lyttle said: "The important part was the result, but I thought it was a good performance as well. The only disappointment was the late goal because I felt we deserved a clean sheet.

"It's just one win. I don't want to single out individual players. We had a few come in and they all did well. Regan coming back in his first game from injury and Greg getting his first goal is a big boost to the squad but the team performance meant the most. 

"It's a busy time and two away games in a few days so it's obviously difficult but we have to try to cope with that. We couldn't buy an away win last year and now we've had a couple in four games so that's a positive. 

"Make no mistake we are in for a tough, tough game and we have be up for the fight and be on our game to come away with a positive result. The players know that so it's in our thoughts as we travel down because in the first meeting we gifted Cork goals and I don't think it was a true reflection. We have to show we're better that because I think we are." 

Kick-off is 7:45pm.
