Rovers will be looking to take three points from the clash against the FAI Ford Cup finalists, as the Hoops continue to fight for a third place finish to secure automatic European qualification.
The game at Tallaght Stadium has an earlier than usual 7pm kick-off, and tickets will be available from the ticket booth outside the ground on the night.
Graham Gartland and Conor Winn both remain out of the Hoops squad with back injuries, while Gary McCabe and Colin Hawkins are suspended for the game. There are doubts over Conor McCormack and Killian Brennan (calf) who will both face fitness tests on Saturday.
Shamrock Rovers director of football, Brian Laws said: "Congratulations to Derry on their qualification for this year's FAI Ford Cup Final. We seen them during the week, so we know what we we are facing on Saturday night. They had two tough games in the past week, so we will be looking to get in control early to get the three points and continue our winning run.
"It is very important that we continue winning to keep the pressure on the top three and keep ourselves in contention for a European qualification place come the end of the season in a few weeks."
