Rovers defender to miss cup game through suspension

Sligo Rovers will be without defender Tobi Adebayo-Rowling for Saturday’s FAI Cup game away to Longford Town.

The right full-back will serve a one-match suspension having picked up five bookings so far this season.

Rovers could recall Gary Boylan or Seamus Sharkey to fill in at right-back for the game against the First Division side.

New side Jamie McDonagh is also an option having deputised in that position for his previous club, Grenock Morton in Scotland.

But the Belfast native told Ocean FM he thinks he is better suited to more attacking positions….

Meanwhile Damien McNulty will be suspended for Finn Harps’ first round tie at home to Bohemians.

But Paddy McCourt will be available despite his sending-off against Galway last week.

Instead the former Celtic player will be banned for Harps’ next league game – a crucial relegation tie away to St Patrick’s Athletic on Friday week.
