Craig Sives is out of the game through suspension. Aaron Greene (knee) remains out of the Rovers squad and Graham Gartland is also out with a back injury.

kenny-stephenCommenting on the game, Hoops boss, Stephen Kenny said: “We had a good win against UCD on Friday night, and we will be looking to build on that tomorrow night. And of course we are very keen to secure the place in the final. But Limerick will also want to get to the final.

"It'll be a tough game, but we need to keep our defence tight, as it has been lately, and put in a good performance on the night. As well as securing as place in the final, that would give us good momentum going into next week's big league game."
