Galway come into the game on the back of a 5-0 hammering against Malahide United. They will look to go into the mid season break with a much needed win after a relatively poor start to the season. 16 games have given Sean Connor’s men just 17 points, with just four league wins to their name.
United rested Seamus Conneely and Bobby Ryan last Friday in their five-nil win over Malahide United, both are expected to return on Tuesday evening. Thomas Heary is a doubt after he picked up a knock in the first half of the Cup game last Friday.
Bohemians 7-1 hammering of Glenville on Sunday will keep Pat Fenlon’s men in good form heading into this important league game. A win for Bohs is a must to keep in touch will early league leaders St. Pats and Dundalk.
Raf Cretaro is out as he continues his recovery from a shin operation. Aaron Greene has missed the last few games and is unlikely to be fit following an ankle injury. Anto Murphy, who along with Greene picked up his injury in the Setanta Sports Cup final, remains doubtful. Stephen Gray missed the weekend cup game and is a slight doubt. With Gary Burke and Lee Dixon having impressed in the FAI Cup game, they may be pushing for a spot in the side.
Extratime Prediction: Bohs to win 2-1.
