The Hoops are on a good run of form in the league with 5 wins from their last 6 games and will be hoping to bring this form into the league cup.
Pat Fenlon told shamrockrovers.ie that "we want to be in the final, it's as simple as that. We were in it last year and lost and we want to rectify that. The players are all looking forward to this game and we know with home advantage and great backing from the fans we have a great chance". Pat went on to say that "it gives us the opportunity to put in a few players that have not featured too much in the league to make a claim for a regular start."
Concluding he said "our supporters want to be in finals, so do we".
Rovers remain without the injured midfield quarter of Sean O'Connor, Keith Fahey, Stephen McPhail and Damien Duff. Other than that there are no other injury concerns or suspensions in at Fenlon's squad.
