Sligo star Ndo a doubt for Setanta Cup clash

Updated: April 15, 2012

Sligo Rovers take on Crusaders in the first leg of the Setanta Cup semi-final at Seaview on Monday night.

Rovers qualified for the last four by beating Glentoran 3-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.

Joseph Ndo is a doubt for the game after picking up a foot injury in the 1-1 draw with Derry City last Friday in the Airtricity Premier Division. He will be assessed before the game.

Pascal Millien comes into contention for Ian Baraclough’s squad for the first time.

Baraclough said: “It is a big game for the club as all semi-finals are. I want to come away from the first leg with a strong position even though we’re away from home.

“We’re not going to sit back and defend but we certainly have to be on our mettle because they’ll be similar to Derry last Friday night I think. They’ll play a direct game where there’ll be in our faces and we have to be able to deal with it.”
