Galway United face Shamrock Rovers in the First Round of the FAI Cup at Tallaght Stadium this Friday with kick-off at 8.00pm.

United travel to the Premier Division champions this week to play 25-time FAI Cup winners Shamrock Rovers in the First Round of this year's competition.

The clubs have faced each other on four occasions in the FAI Cup.

United's most historic triumph over the Hoops came 30 years ago when they defeated Rovers 1-0 in the 1991 FAI Cup final at Lansdowne Road.

The 2019 FAI Cup winners are currently first in the Premier Division while the Tribesmen remain in second place on the First Division table.

United manager John Caulfield is urging his players to enjoy the occasion at Tallaght Stadium on Friday night.
