Bohemians v CCFC – Team news & coverage

Cork City make their third trip to Dublin in the space of a week, as they take on Bohemians at Dalymount Park in the EA Sports Cup Quarter Final on Monday night.

City suffered a 2-0 defeat away to Shamrock Rovers on Friday, but were victorious in their previous visit to Dublin, winning 1-0 at UCD last Monday. The home side come into the game on the back of two consecutive defeats; away to Dundalk and at home to Sligo Rovers, both on a 2-1 scoreline. The sides have met twice so far this season, with City winning 2-0 at Turner’s Cross in March and then 1-0 at Dalymount Park earlier this month.

Speaking ahead of the game, interim City manager John Cotter said: “There will be a few lads coming into the team, but it is a quarter final of a cup and we are going up there to win the match and hopefully get through.”

“We have never had an easy game at Dalymount Park. We went up there three weeks ago and got a great result, but it was a tough game and we expect more of the same. They were beaten Friday night, but I watched the game and they didn’t deserve to lose it, so no doubt they will feel they are due a win.”

“We were disappointed to lose on Friday, but I said a few weeks ago, after we lost to Dundalk, that you need a game quickly to bounce back; we reacted well and beat UCD that time, so we will be looking for that again tomorrow. You need to pick yourself up and go again, and that’s what we will do tomorrow.”

On the injury front, Cian Murphy is ruled out with a hamstring injury that is likely to see him sidelined for the foreseeable future, while Conor McCormack, Gary Boylan and Karl Sheppard are all doubts.
