The Airtricity League First Division title will be on the line as Cork City travel to Tolka Park on Saturday evening to take on Shelbourne.

Shels are in first place going into the last game of the season, with Cork City just two points behind in second place.

A draw would see Shelbourne win the title and City promoted in second place, however City boss Tommy Dunne told CorkCityFC.net that his side will be going out to win the game and the title: “We have gone out to win every game we have played this season, and we will not be changing our approach for this match.

Shels are already promoted, but there is a league title at stake and they also have a cup final the following week. Whoever plays for them will be looking to put in a good pe


rformance, as they will be playing for a league title and also for a place in the cup final team.”City welcome Danny Murphy back after a one match suspension, however there are a number of injury doubts ahead of the tie. Neal Horgan (knee) and Greg O’Halloran (Achilles) have both struggled with injuries in recent weeks, but Dunne is hopeful that they will both be available.

Gavin Kavanagh has also struggled with a back injury in recent weeks, and played through the pain barrier against Longford Town. He has had intensive treatment this week, and it is hoped that he will be available, though he is rated as very doubtful. Davin O’Neill was substituted after scoring the equaliser against Longford last week with a recurrence of a hamstring injury, and he has also had intensive treatment but remains a major doubt ahead of the game.
