Georgie Kelly expecting tough physical European encounter

Three League of Ireland sides are in Europa Conference League action tonight.

It’s a big evening for Sligo Rovers who play their first game in European football in seven years.

Sligo are in Iceland to play FH Hafnarfjarðar. Kick Off is at 7pm.

Preparations have been far from ideal for Liam Buckley’s side after two players were affected by Covid.

One tested positive and the second was deemed a close contact. Both were cases away from the club and the rest of the squad were cleared to depart for Iceland.

Bohemians are also in Iceland, against Stjarnan from 8.45.

Bohs striker Georgie Kelly is top of the Premier Division goal scoring standings and wants to contribute tonight again on the European front.
