Team News: Bohemian FC
Bohemian FC manager Keith Long has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this game owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
We think that The Bohs should go for a 4-2-3-1 formation for the game with Stephen McGuinness, Anto Breslin, James Finnerty, Dan Casey, Andy Lyons, Jonathan Lunney, Keith Buckley, Daniel Grant, Keith Ward, Kris Twardek and Andre Wright.
Team News: Waterford
Due to a fully healthy group available to select from, Waterford boss John Sheridan has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this game.
We believe The Blues seem likely to play in a 4-3-3 lineup, starting the game with Brian Murphy, Tunmise Sobowale, Sam Bone, Robert McCourt, Tyreke Wilson, John Martin, Shane Griffin, Robbie Weir, Matthew Smith, Michael O'Connor and Ali Coote.
We feel that in this game, Waterford have it within them to find the back of the net against this Bohemian FC team, although it isn’t expected to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our selection here is for a 2-1 win for Bohemian FC at the end of this one. Could easily see this go either way.
