Football: TERRYLAND CLASH GOES AHEAD.

FOR a while yesterday it seemed likely that this clash wouldn't go ahead due to the country-wide blockades that swung into action today.

But after on-going discussions between Galway, Shamrock Rovers and the eircom League it was decided to proceed and it is due to kick-off at Terryland Park at 7.45 this evening.

Rovers boss Damien Richardson says that the on-off nature of the game will not have disprupted his players.

"All we could do was prepare for the game as normal, and not worry about it taking place on Saturday or Sunday," he said.

The Hoops are counting the cost of Marc Kenny's controversial sending-off against Bohemians at the start of the season. The playmaker has picked up a one-game suspension.

Tony Cousins came through his first game back after a long lay-off with a knee injury.

He played part of an under-21 game last weekend, and will play the full 90 minutes at that level again tomorrow.

"We're being very guarded about him, we won't be pushing him back in straight away," admits Richardson.

Galway welcome centre-half Tom Silke back from the US, where he had been coaching over the course of the summer.

However the signing from Athlone Town isn't up to the required level of fitness yet and isn't likely to figure this week.

Manager Don O'Riordan will not make any unforced changes after his side picked up four points from their last two games, but youngster Sean Malee has the flu and is a slight doubt.

Ollie Keogh and John Healy have signed new one year contracts.
