Shamrock Rovers will look to shake off the cobwebs of Monday’s deafeat to Bohemians and manager Stephen Kenny’s subsequent sacking, and in the process take one step closer to their first FAI Cup since 1987.
The Hoops travel to Tolka Park, where they have won twice already this season, to face Shelbourne in the quarter final of the cup under Kenny’s assistant Stephen Glass who says, “The players are all very much looking forward to the game tomorrow night.
We know it will be a tough fixture, but we are all very keen to get to the semi-final of the FAI Cup.Training went well this week, but now the players just want to get on the pitch and focus on football and battling to get that semi-final place.”
Graham Gartland is the only injury concern for Glass while his counterpart Alan Mathews has a full squad to chose from, and the Shels manager feels his side have a good chance of progressing.
“It’s a huge opportunity for us to progress in the cup – another very big game for the club, Rovers coming here after being beaten by Bohemians.
