McDonagh set to feature for Northern Irish U21s this evening

Sligo Rovers winger Jamie McDonagh is part of the Northern Ireland U21 squad that will face Jersey in a friendly match at St Helier this evening.

The game is set to kick-off at 8pm.

The Northern Irish U21 side is managed by former Rovers manager Ian Baraclough, and they will face Estonia in their next European Championship tie in Lurgan next Tuesday evening.

It is not clear yet whether or not the Belfast native will be able to feature for the Bit O’ Red in Saturday’s second last home game of the season against Bohemians.

Sligo Rovers will be strengthened by the availability of midfielder Craig Roddan for Saturday’s home game against Bohemians at the Showgrounds.

Rovers are unbeaten in seven league games at the Showgrounds heading into that game, but find themselves in the relegation zone with just four games remaining.

Craig Roddan will return from suspension for the tie, but goalkeeper Micheál Schlingermann remains out because of a neck injury.

Cork referee Graham Kelly will take charge of Saturday’s game, which kicks-off at 7.45pm.

Paul Tuite will be the man in the middle for Finn Harps for their game at home to Dundalk at 5pm on the same day.
