The RTÉ cameras will be at the Showgrounds on Saturday afternoon to see if Airtricity League leaders Sligo Rovers can extend their winning start to the 2013 Premier Division season to eight games with victory over Cork City.

Ironically, Cork were the last Airtricity League Premier Division team to win their first eight games, and will be bidding to prevent Sligo equalling their record today.

Sligo drew twice and won once against Cork last season and Danny North - who scored the winner in that victory - is unlikely to return from his long-term knee injury although he is close.

Sligo will also be without Seamus Conneely, who has had a minor knee operation. Ciaran Kelly (fractured sternum) is also out, but Adam Murphy and Joseph Ndo are available for selection.

Cork got a first win in four games by beating UCD last week and will be without Darren Dennehy (suspended), Kevin Murray and Dan Murray but Neal Horgan (knee) could be fit.

Sligo Rovers v Cork City, the Showgrounds, 15:55pm (live on RTÉ Two.)
