After wins for Cork City, Galway Utd and St Pat's on Monday night, there's another four games this evening in the second round of the EA Sports Cup.

Among them, are Derry City, who welcome Sligo Rovers to the Brandywell.

Derry will be without injured duo Aaron Barry and Harry Monaghan, Barry is suffering from a hip problem while Monaghan is set for six weeks on the sideline with a knee complaint.

Just like Barry and Monaghan, Dean Jarvis also picked up an injury in the draw last weekend with Longford.

Manager Kenny Shiels is hopeful the calf injury Jarvis suffered wont rule him out of tonight's clash which kicks off at 7.45 in Derry.

Also tonight , Limerick will play host to Wexford Youths, Bray Wanderers host Bluebell United and and Shamrock Rovers host Athlone Town at the Tallaght Stadium.
