SFC team news | Sligo Rovers v Shelbourne

Posted on

Shelbourne boss Damien Duff says his team will be prepared for a Sligo team “full of fresh impetus and energy” after a recent managerial change. 

The Reds travel to The Showgrounds tomorrow night to face John Russell’s side having gained two wins over the Sligo team this year thus far. 

“The confidence is there alright but it doesn’t automatically mean you just turn up and you beat them again. You know how they can change,” Duff told shelbournefc.ie

“We know their profile of the player and the squad – the formation hasn’t changed too much but our boys will be ready to go,” he added. 

“ We’re never happy and our remit this year is to stay up while we’re getting to the business end of the season we’ve asked the players where do you want to go? 

“It’s down to us – we’re in a good position but it’s up to the players whether if they want to go up or down,” he said. 

Shelbourne’s Mark Coyle has returned to training but will need a little while longer for the match day squad while Daniel Hawkins and Sean McSweeney continue to miss out through long term injury. 

Stanley Anaebonam is no longer with the Club and we wish Stan the best in his future career. 

Shels have no suspensions going into Saturday’s game while Duff said he was looking forward to seeing the travelling hoards of Shelbourne fans once more out west.
