Rory Gaffney has now scored three goals in his last four games, making him his side's joint top scorer alongside Graham Burke and the now Lincoln City player Danny Mandroiu.

Rovers are ten points clear at the summit of the League of Ireland Premier Division table with a third title on the bounce looking more and more likely.

Shamrock Rovers will likely welcome Graham Burke back to the team after being sidelined through injury the last couple of weeks, but it is unlikely that Jack Byrne will be fit enough for the tie.

Speaking ahead of the game, Stephen Bradley reiterated that complacency won't creep into his side prior to the game.

Bradley said:

"We’re going there to win the match

"Hibs showed in the second half that they’re a dangerous side.

"We expected their new striker (Terrence Groothusen) to start but they only brought him on at half-time.

"People could see a monster and can run. He’s a handful.

"If you sit back against this time, you’re asking for trouble. They’re a big side and we know the conditions that are ahead, with the heat and pitch."
