Team News
Keith Fahey, David Partridge, John Frost remain out.

Manager's Comment
“It's the start of the cup competition and five matches and five wins could see a team with a trophy and qualification for Europe so we'll be trying to go as far as we can.

We're playing at home and no disrespect to Longford but on home ground we've a great chance of making it into the next round.

Longford are a revamped young team, they've made a good start to the season and they will be eager. With the cup anything can happen so we will be treating the match with a lot of caution”.
