FAI Cup replay: Same again for Shels


Shelbourne manager Alan Mathews will again have a full squad to choose from for tonight’s Ford-sponsored FAI Cup semi-final replay with Derry City at Tolka Park (kick-off 8pm) but the visitors have slight doubts over Barry Molloy and Rory Patterson, who passed fitness tests to start Sunday’s 1-1 draw.

“We prepared well for Sunday and have again for the replay,” says Mathews, who could well stick with the team that took a first-half lead at the Brandywell thanks to David Cassidy but couldn’t hold on to secure a place in their second successive cup final.

Patterson, meanwhile, looks like the biggest doubt for Declan Devine, with the striker reported to have been struggling after his first 70 minutes of competitive first team football in around four months.
