Both sides played out 0-0 draws on Friday night – Drogheda United at home to St. Patricks Athletic and Shelbourne at home to Bray Wanderers.
In the two games played between the sides this season, United have come out on top in each – 3-1 winners at Hunky Dorys Park in April and 2-1 winners at Tolka Park at the end of July.
Anto Murphy will miss out on Monday’s game, due to the serving the second of two additional games’ suspension for being sent off against St.Patricks Athletic. Stephen Paisley returns after suspension for accumulation of yellow cards.
Philly Gorman returned from injury for the last seven minutes of Friday night’s game with Bray Wanderers and having had no reaction to the hip injury is likely to feature on Monday. Philly Hughes had not recovered 100% from a groin injury and was not risked, but it is hoped that he will be fit and included in the squad for the Drogheda game.
