UCD v Cork City preview

Cork City look to return to winning ways tonight.

After suffering their first defeat in the John Cotter era on Friday night against Dundalk, the Rebel Army head to Belfield for a clash with UCD. 

Garry Buckley returns from suspension, while Gearoid Morrissey, Shane Griffin and Dan Casey are all doubts - they'll be assessed before kick off. 

Cotter is hoping his side can bounce back, and quickly.

"It's a great opportunity to have a game so soon, and to try and put things right and get another three points. There's no time for anyone to feel sorry for themselves, you have to pick yourself up and get going again and that's what we've been doing since Saturday morning.

"UCD lost to Rovers on Friday night, and we only played them last Friday week. We know them well, we know their strengths and their weaknesses. It's a game we played well in [at Turner's Cross] - we'll be looking to implement our own game plan and go up there and take all three points."
