Danny North has fully recovered from a knee injury and is available to start tomorrow's Europa League match while new signing Damien Duff will be training with the Shamrock Rovers squad within the next three weeks.

North was expected to be sidelined until September but came off the bench last week and manager Pat Fenlon revealed today that the striker is fully fit but unlikely to start tomorrow's clash with Odds BK.

Keith Fahey (hip/knee) and Stephen McPhail (groin) will not win their race to be fit for the second qualifying round first leg match and Fenlon admitted that both are unlikely to be fit for the second leg either.

Central defenders, Conor Kenna and Max Blanchard, are both fit again and the boss has stated that the defensive duo are being considered for starting spots for tomorrow night's game at Tallaght Stadium (8pm k/o).

New signing, Duff (ankle), is almost back to full fitness and is expected to train for the first time with the Hoops' squad in two-and-a-half weeks or at the latest, three weeks.

Meanwhile centre-half Richie Purdy and and Dylan Kavanagh who can play at left-back or on the left wing have both been rewarded with senior contracts at Rovers.

The duo, who graduated from the under-19s squad, have been training full-time in the senior set-up since the start of the season but are now contracted with the club until the end of next season.
