Derry City host Bohemians at the Brandywell this evening in their final home game of the season.

Patrick McEleney is expected to miss tonight's game as he recovers from a Shingles virus while Rob Mc Cormick is suspended.

The club go into the tie with news this morning that former Manchester United and Northern Ireland defender Pat McGibbon is thought to have applied for the manager's position at the Brandywell.

McGibbon's reported interest follows the news last week that another former Red Devil Andrei Kanshelskis had applied for a position which the club insists isn't actually vacant.

The Lurgan mas who was involved with Newry City and Dungannon Swifts is also linked with the job at Glentoran.

Elsewhere on the pitch tonight, Champions Dundalk face Cork City at Turners cross with the Leesiders looking to hold onto second place, it's also a dress rehearsal for the FAI Cup final.

Shamrock Rovers and St Pat's are still chasing the runners up spot and they face Limerick and Sligo Rovers respectively while Longford Town visit Drogheda United.
