Rovers to get ready for big kick off with home friendly tonight

After their successful three weeks in India The Hoops are home and with just eight days to go to the start of the season they face Shels in a friendly tonight in Tallaght Stadium.

Fans will get a chance to see new signings Killian Brennan, Gary Shaw and Dean Clarke in action and with Sligo away next weekend on the managers radar players will definitely be playing for places tonight.

Shels should make this a good pre season test as they get ready to mount a challenge to return to the Premier Division. They finished last season strongly and gave Dundalk a good game a few weeks ago in the Leinster Senior Cup.

Kick off tonight is 8pm.
