UPDATE: Match postponed due to a waterlogged pitch

After St Pat's took all three points from their trip to Shelbourne on Friday night, Sligo Rovers' place at the top of the Airtricity League Premier division is down to goal difference.

But the westerners have a chance to re-establish a points advantage when they host Dundalk this evening at the Showgrounds (7.45pm).

Sligo Rovers haven’t lost in their last ten games against tonight's opposition and have won the last five on the trot, making them hot favourites.

Dundalk have been the surprise team of the season so far and they can consolidate their position in fourth place with a win.

But their record against top-six teams this season is poor, having picked up one point from six games, while Rovers have 11 against the same opposition.

The champions are still without the injured Danny North (knee), Seamus Conneely (knee) and Ciaran Kelly (fractured sternum), while Gavin Peers and David Cawley are suspended.

Dundalk have no suspensions but Chris Shields (knee) and Mark Rossiter (knee) are struggling with injuries.
