Tommy Barrett for improvement from a disjointed display which saw them defeated 3-0 at the same venue seven days ago. That against league leaders Galway. One change can be expected, with now suspended Andy Spain missing out. Ben O’Riordan will also miss out, suspended for the second of three clashes, following a late red card away to Longford Town.
Anto O’Donnell is in-line for a return to the starting XI, and may join exciting teenager, Darren Nwankwo, who is tipped for a higher level in the coming years.
Finn Harps have been on a very poor run of form lately will be hoping that the trip to Limerick will be memorable, their last visit to Markets Field in Promotion Relegation Play-Off success over Limerick FC in 2018
Currently in ninth position, the Ulster side went four unbeaten in April, but have lost four on the spin this month.
The away side will also be making some adjustments to their staring team, as defender Daithi McCallion was sent off in their last game. That was a 4-0 reverse at home to Waterford. The Shannonsiders last played Finn Harps in April in Finn Park, where they were defeated 2-0. Ryan Rainey and teenager Filip Da Silva found the net on a rare good night for Dave Rodgers charges.
Rodgers played with Limerick FC in 2010, one of ten League of Ireland clubs the Englishman featured for.
Treaty have lost four of their seven games at the Garryowen venue this season, though Harps have only collected seven points in as many clashes – only Kerry have claimed fewer thus far. Few fans of the Limerick side would be satisfied with anything less than a victory.
