Derry City host Shamrock Rovers in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division tonight at the Brandywell.

Derry have a number of injury concerns going into this one but Aaron Barry and Seamus Sharkey should be fit to start despite picking up knocks in the League Cup win over Sligo Rovers earlier this week.

Defenders Dean Jarvis and Seanan Clucas are rated doubtful while Stephen Dooley, Joshua Daniels and Shaun Kelly have already been ruled out.

Rovers won all three of last years league games against Derry and currently sit seven points above them in the table.

There are five games in the Premier Division tonight - Dundalk will hope to protect their lead at the top when Louth rivals Drogheda visit Oriel Park, Cork City are away to St. Pat's, Bohemians will look for a repeat of their EA Sports Cup win when Longford return to Dalymount for the second time this week and bottom side Sligo Rovers face a Connacht derby away to Galway.

All of those games kick off at 7.45.
