CCFC v Bohs- Team news and coverage

Cork City are back in Turner’s Cross on Friday, as they welcome Bohemians. This is the fourth meeting of the clubs this season, having met in the league twice already, and once in the EA Sports Cup in a game that saw Bohemians progress at City’s expense.

The Rebel Army will look to pick up a much-needed win, having been at the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline at home last Friday against Derry City, before picking up a point on the road after a 0-0 draw with Finn Harps in Donegal on Monday night. The visitors come to Leeside after a better run of form, with victories over Shamrock Rovers and Waterford and a draw against Derry City in their last three games.

Speaking to the media on Tuesday afternoon, Cork City head coach John Cotter looked ahead to the game: “We know Bohs will be a tough game, it always is. We beat them here 2-0 and we beat them up there 1-0, but those games count for nothing. We know we’re going to have to go out Friday and produce every bit of that work-rate that we produced last night. Hopefully the couple of attacking players we have coming in – Dáire, Joel and Darragh Crowley will help us.”

“On Monday night we were literally down to barebones, but the boys put in an unbelievable shift and that’s all that we can ask of them. I’ve no doubt that if we keep doing that, we will get the wins we’re looking for.”

Shane Griffin, Pierce Phillips, Cian Murphy and Cian Bargary are all definitely ruled out, but it is hoped that Karl Sheppard will be available for selection. City will be boosted by the return of Dáire O’Connor having served a one game suspension after being sent off against Derry City, while Joel Coustrain will be available to make his first appearance in a Cork City shirt.
