Team news in advance of the final home game of the season on Friday night:
Shamrock Rovers v UCD
Airtricity League, Premier Division
Tallaght Stadium, 19.10.12, Kick-off: 8pm
Rovers play host to UCD in the Hoops' last home game of the 2012 season at Tallaght Stadium on Friday night.
The game will also be Gary Twigg's last home game with the Hoops and the Rovers fans are planning a big send-off for the Scottish native who has scored 84 competitive goals in his four seasons with the club.
The Hoops have a number of injury concerns with Ciaran Kilduff (throat infection), Ronan Finn (ankle) and Colin Hawkins (strain) all doubts for the game. Craig Sives has a knee problem and will do a fitness test before the match, while Killian Brennan (calf) has been ruled out of the game. On the plus side, Gary McCabe returns from suspension and Conor McCormack has recovered from his recent injury and returns to the squad.
Shamrock Rovers director of football, Brian Laws said: "It goes without saying that I will be looking for a response from the players after last week's very poor performance against Derry City. We will be mixing things up a bit in the team in order to spark a bit of life back into the side.
"While there is still an outside chance of us catching third spot, we need to keep chasing that. It would be great to go into the last game with something to play for. It will also be Gary Twigg's last home game for the club and it would be good to send him off with a good performance and a win."
