KEY MAN:   Cork City's Davin O'Neill fights for fitness
            The evenings might be getting colder, but that's nothing compared to what Davin O'Neill is facing this week.  The Cork City striker is currently undergoing cryotherapy in Clare in a bid to be fit for Saturday's league title shoot out with Shelbourne.
           O'Neill picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-1 win over Longford Town at Turner's Cross last Friday night, and it was assumed that the 27 year old would be forced to sit out the trip to Tolka Park.  However City boss Tommy Dunne refused to rule the Cobh native out of Saturday's game, confirming his cryotherapy treatments.

Dunne: hoping for full squad and big travelling support
"We'll do everything we can to get Davin fit for Saturday," - Cork City FC manager Tommy Dunne      

              Cryotherapy involves being subjected to temperatures of -110°C, which is thought to improve blood flow to the injured area, resulting in a quicker recuperation period.  "It's such a massive game for the club and we want to have our players on the pitch on the night.  We hope to bring 2,000 City fans to Tolka with us and it'd be a real boost for Davin to play some part for us," - said Dunne today.
