Cork City and Shamrock Rovers continue their pursuit of Dundalk at the top of the Airtricity League Premier Division tonight.

Cork are in second-place in the table - but they start the night 11 points behind Dundalk as they prepare to host Derry City at Turner's Cross.

Derry need points as the season end gets closer, they sit just five points above bottom club Limerick.

Ryan McBride and Patrick McEleney are injury doubts for the candystrips and will have late fitness tests.

Captain McBride has an ankle problem while midfielder McEleney is struggling with a thigh injury.

Shamrock Rovers are in third place and tonight they're at home to Galway United.

Also at 7:45, Drogheda United will entertain Bohemians.
