The part time players of Dublin Bus prepare to take on Shamrock Rovers.

Dublin Bus will be hoping to put the brakes on the FAI Cup hopes of one of the League of Ireland's top teams, Shamrock Rovers .

Rovers are the red hot favourites and the bus men are well aware they'll have to step up a gear if their dreams of motoring into the next round are to be kept on course.

Manager of Dublin Bus football club Kevin Smith is determined that while they may be the underdogs, they will not concede defeat easily. Despite the challenge he is delighted that Dublin Bus FC was drawn against one of the top teams in the league.

Dublin Bus FC captain Paul "Soupy" Campbell is hopeful that the team will do themselves justice.
