Dundalk will be visiting Tolka Park on Friday for their Premier Division tie with Shelbourne. We have the latest player updates and predicted teams line ups.
Shelbourne will be looking for an improved result here after the 1-0 Premier Division loss in their previous game against Bohemian FC. In our view, The Shels look set to use the 5-3-2 system, utilising Brendan Clarke, John Ross Wilson, Aaron O'Driscoll, Luke Byrne, Shane Griffin, Conor Kane, Aodh Dervin, Jonathan Lunney, Jack Moylan, Shane Farrell and Sean Boyd.
Shelbourne boss Damien Duff will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of before this clash thanks to a fully healthy group available to select from.
How Shelbourne might line up to play Dundalk
Dundalk go into this match following a 1-0 Premier Division win over Shamrock Rovers in their previous game. We’re of the thinking that The Lilywhites seem most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup using Nathan Sheppard, Lewis Macari, Mark Connolly, Andrew Boyle, Darragh Leahy, Paul Doyle, Gregory Sloggett, Steven Bradley, Robbie Benson, Daniel Kelly and Patrick Hoban.
Thanks to a mainly full-strength squad, there’s just the lone fitness problem for the Dundalk manager Stephen O'Donnell to be concerned with. John Mountney (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out for this game.
