Tough Tallaght assignment for Tim Clancy's men

Tim Clancy's Drogheda United travel to Tallaght Stadium on Friday evening to face a Shamrock Rovers side that lost to Dublin rivals Bohemians on Monday.

A number of away fans will be present at the fixture as part of the pilot test event for spectators returning to sport events in Ireland.

Drogheda come into this game following a 0-1 defeat on Monday against Dundalk in the second Louth Derby of the season.

In the first meeting this season, the Tallaght side Rovers took all three points, deep into injury time as Danny Mandroiu headed home a free kick in the 95th minute.

In team news, Mark Hughes returned to the matchday squad against Dundalk on Monday, but Hugh Douglas remains sidelined by injury. Jake Hyland is also doubtful after missing the derby against Dundalk
