EA Sports Cup Final

Graham Gartland and Conor Winn both remain out of the Hoops squad with back injuries. Ken Oman and Pat Sullivan are both suspended for the game while there are doubts over Colin Hawkins (sprain), Craig Sives and Conor McCormack (ankle). All three will face fitness tests before tomorrow's game.
Shamrock Rovers director of football, Brian Laws said: "When I came in I asked the players for blood, sweat and tears this week; I didn't think they take me literally, but we ended up with a few cuts and bruises, they've worked so hard this week. The players have given me a fantastic response and they are all really looking forward to the game tomorrow.
"It is very unusual for your first game with a club to be a cup final, but that's the way it is. We want to start off well with a win tomorrow and then we will be looking at the last six games as a mini-league from which we will be looking to qualify for a European spot."
Tickets are on sale at the ticket booths in the car park pre match, there is free car parking at level 3 in The Square.
